Maggie and ‘Bert are together because Edna and Madge cannot be nice.
Yesterday Madge gave Maggie such a belter that she fell over. Not pretty and definitely not good. I told Madge in no uncertain terms just what I thought of her. Once the snow has thawed, I will give them all one more chance and if Edna and Madge still fail to be civil, they will have to go to Leradale for a bit while Maggie has her lamb(s). I hate doing this but it is for Maggie’s safety and she has to be my priority.
At the moment Maggie and ‘Bert live in the little paddock behind the house. There is a shed attached. As I type, I am watching them go back to bed everytime it snows!
Over the past 48 hours, the snow and Arctic winds have been unceasing and no one is moving.
It is horrible. Seriously vile. I am at my wits’ end. We run around all day trying keep the animals alive and ourselves warm. The house hates a north wind and the temperature everywhere drops dramatically.
To add to our misery, we had a power cut for a few hours this evening so I lit all the gas lamps.
I keep three on stand-by for emergencies. I suffer from this eternal urge to try and switch on the lights!
Anywho, now the wind has dropped slightly, the electricty has returned. The horses and sheep have gone out and about, and we are all still here, so that’s all good. Please can I have Spring back.
