Disaster struck last night as the only bit of sunshine in my life during winter ended until next year. "What is she talking," about I hear you say, as most avid weather watchers have looked at the forecast and discovered that there is a high probability of sunshine up till the end of the weekend. Well "Death in Paradise" finished, admittedly not the most sunny title but as it is set in the Carribean I can always dream, and I do love a good murder mystery.
We have about 52 lambs on the ground to our first time ewes which is keeping Gavin fairly busy and up at all hours checking and topping up the slow starters with a bottle.
But, I hear you say, the sun is out now so why aren't the sheep? And my reply is that the ground is so wet and will be for some time so they will do too much damge to the fields and lose too much weight trying to plod through the bog every day grazing.
The children are back at school after a wet and windy half term.
Now I have finished this blog I am going to go into the sunshine and absorb some vitamin D whilst trying to tidy the mud patch we call a garden.
See you soon.
