Building is rather a grand term for the organised noise on the farm which has to be done once the weather dried out and before the birthing season is upon us.. but something is definitely going on around here!
I do not wish to complain but I do think an 8 inch drop is a just a bit dangerous for cyclists, horses and cars with low undercarriage.. outside our drive..
Folk often think she is a “Labradoodle” but absolutely not, this dog weighs circa 40kg, guards like a Rottweiler and is extremely strong – a Curly Coated Retriever no less and not to be messed with.
IF you think this stick is big..
The understand the gate is 14ft wide..
Wildlife Rescue at Kensmyth Alpaca – whatever for? Well because I am a “by the book” kind of girl. We had plans for some works on the grounds here due and we also had piles of leaves.. so in anticipation of potential Hedgehogs, Oak and Furrows kindly visited just in case..
piles that had been there since November could have been very tempting for Hedghogs but luckily not so and Oak and Furrows went on their way with a donation.. Remember – ALWAYS check leaf piles please folks!
Well I recently had a birthday and received loads of lovely gifts but my card range this year was just beautiful – too many for the mantlepiece but here are just a few..
Who remembers lunch “on the fly” and the good old fashioned “Ploughman’s” – no eggs or pickled onions on this one but makes a nice quick and easy lunch with Oatcakes and good old Branston!
“Bring on the Branston..” – I am really showing my age here..
Well Mr Blue Sky (ELO for those of us that still remember the name of the band as well as the name of the song) finally reappeared after the storms Eunice amongst them had left devastation in their wake..
so what better than to enjoy your own Riparian rights with your faithful friend?
this week I have seen sunshine, hail, snow and zero degrees with icy cold winds but hey – April showers wet still to come oh Joy!
Welcome April with the lambs and birthing just round the corner now..
