Everyone is happy and well in their respective fields. Hetja, Hjalti, Waffle and Silver are one happy family. Hetja will even suffer Minions eating out of her bowl. She bosses them all around and they all stand where they are put. She definitely has The Look that all mothers have. It needs no words – we all know what it means.
The Big Boys are happy together.
Silver and Storm left them this morning and have moved in with the Ladies, Vitamin and Delia. They didn’t need asking twice and trotted enthusiastically into their field after breakfast.
Vitamin was poking her head out of the shed door.
Vitamin: I don’t think there’s room in here, Storm dear.
Storm: Au contraire (giving a hefty shove)
Tiddles: Room for a little one – make way (clambering in through everyone’s legs!)
Delia: Hello, dearies.
So now the shed fits four and there is no arguing or anything really.
It is snug but they all want to be together. Delia and Vitamin seem far less fed up now, even venturing out with the boys to have some grass and fresh air. Storm and Tids are enjoying being the men of the house!
Lambie has discovered a new love – carrots!
I have to hold them for him like a lollipop so he can crunch his way through. Put it on the floor and he immediately loses interest so I stand outside, for what feels like hours in the freezing cold, feeding carrots to Lambie (and Lambert). Lambster is not sure about this new development but has learned to run almost properly and to give nose kisseys (luffley). He is nearly a normal sheep.
I went out for a little drive just to see what the wave situation was – good with lovely colours. Enjoy my drive. I sat in the car with the heater on full blast, taking photos out of the window!
