What a lovely day Sunday was, we had friends round for lunch and had braised lamb with beans, which was delicious, and then sat in the garden (or rather area of mud with a little grass growing on it) in the sunshine. Granted we had jumpers on but nonetheless it was very pleasant. Having taken my photo I realise the cabbage should have been savoy cabbage rather than the round white for artistic effect.
My curiosity satisfied I went moving fences with Gavin and Number 3 to make the most of the sun before the rest of the week began.
"A"lamb was evicted to the shed this week to learn how to be a real lamb. Mainly because Number 2 did not enjoy having a wet foot when she stumbled downstairs in the morning in her pyjamas to forage for her Coco Pops. There are few things more frightening for a Father then a grumpy 15 year old daughter with a wet slipper before 10 o'clock in the morning.
We have reached lamb number 50 I think and we are still going strong I hope.
Patrick has been home for a few days this week and has helped his Dad finish off the gates for the shed and rolled a few bales around. He's had a good old workout ready to attack another term at uni. Number 2 and I are quite happy to have a break from bale rolling as although they provide excellent body strengthening exercises, they are really quite heavy.
See you all soon
