Wow what an entry into the New Year it has been. I sent a video to a friend, who lives in South Wales on the 1st January of the world outside my kitchen window and she sent back saying, "Welcome back to Wales"..... hmmm.....!!! I have decided that if I was super human, the ability to see the future weather conditions would be my super power. It would make planning the farming year epically simple.
Gavin decided during the summer last year that we needed to do a double lambing this year and as January is such a delightfully warm and dry month the lambs would have a good start before the bad weather hit during February and March..... Well that all went according to plan didn't it. We are on track for the 3rd wettest December/January since records began in 1900. Yes I know the top picture has a blue sky and there were a few beautifully sunny days. It would not be in my nature to moan all the time. Yes we did need the rain after a very dry year. Maybe we will have luxuriously green pastures in early Spring as a bonus.
Apparently Gavin would like a modification in his life if this sticker that he acquired is anything to go by!.....
We will see you all soon. Keep smiling! As a very small group of cranes passed over our rooftop a few days ago and yes they were flying north.
