Gavin, my husband, was out fencing (no, not with swords) maybe I should say moving sheep and tells me he heard, then saw a small group of cranes heading north! I have asked him if he was hallucinating and he was emphatic that he was not so unless they have been blown off course I guess that spring is on the way! Extraordinary looking out the window right now at the grey sky, the trees blowing in the wind, the constantly running water drains and the mud, mud and more mud. I dream of tarmac..........
You will all be delighted to know that all the children are well and those who were ill or waiting for exam results are back at school, so I managed to spend only 35 euros at my last supermarket shopping spree at Mutant. Pretty impressive I thought.
There are 2 lambs in our kitchen one of which is called Titch/Lucky. Two of the children are fighting over what she should be named. One would have thought that after a lifetime of having various baby animals in the kitchen everything from wild pigs (in Zimbabwe), to goslings and kittens they would have become less adamant about who gets to pick the names, but no. Funnily enough we seem to have a long line of Luckys, Titches, Babys, Fluffys.... etc, etc.
The other is number 14 and without name just incase.
Below is Titch/Lucky.
See you all soon
