It has been a lambing week. Not a frenzied one, a slow drip of one or two lambs everyday or every other day. This can be extraordinarily annoying under normal circumstances when all you really want is to get the lambing finished with and get on with everything else that needs doing. However this year it has turned out to be a real bonus as there is lots of backwards and forwards-ing between countries this month. I have remembered that farming can be good fun and I have remembered that despite my preoccupation with the butchery, I can still remember what to do when presented with a lamb coming out head first of a poor struggling mummy sheep. I have also discovered that my girls, despite there diminutive sizes, are really quite strong, so we succssfully managed to load a large round bale into the trailer and then unload it into a field with no mechanical assistance. GIRL POWER!!
I must give up ranting...no in fact I will continue it is a good way to let of steam which is much better for ones health. I am sure it will successfully get me into trouble with many people long into the future.
Here is a rainbow to end with.
See you sometime
