Daisy and I took the van to fill up with emergency hay for foaling – because you never know and I like to be prepared. Ok, ok, I panic and worry. I admit it.
I felt very proud seeing my work in the shop and hope they quickly fly off the shelves. I worked very hard making them.
Then ten puffins went to the Peerie Shop to be priced up and quickly put on the shelves. The street was deserted mainly because it was ruddy freezing.
There was, however, a Norwegian cruise ship in harbour – the beautifully restored MS Nordstjernen. We did see a few visitors huddling in doorways looking very cold.
The freezing black clouds were not helping.
Daisy and I dodged in and out of the shops trying to avoid the hail, sleet and, at one stage, snow.
So that’s all my sheep and puffins gone. Flown the nest. I am now working on curly-wurly sheep.
I love the Wensleydale curly “locks” and am waiting on some shiny black ones to arrive from England.
I think curly-wurly sheep may be the way forward!
