Blimmin’ Hot Here

It is very hot here.  Yes, that is a phrase you don’t often see me write but it said 19º C in the car and I believe it.

The daily Minion visit (with added minibus tour) was hilarious.  Waffle had managed to get himself into a next door field (luckily, mine) and was looking a bit sheepish when Flossie kindly walked down to release him.  As we had visitors, we herded everyone up to the gate to meet n’ greet, whereupon they decided to congregate in the stream (the ponies, not the visitors) .  Yes, in.

And then Waffle got in to drink (fine), splosh around (he does that) and finally sit down (really?) in.  Sadly, I don’t have a photo of the sitting down as I was too busy trying to introduce us, get everyone safely into the field but it was very funny to watch.

Having finished up with the Minions, we went home to be met by BeAnne and Lambie, both desperate to go in my shed.  It is a popular venue.

The poor Boyzenberries are suffering hugely in this heat.  They are not fans and, as I type, Lambie is sitting puffing away listening to Handel’s Messiah.  I smiled to myself when it got to the bit about “All WE, like SHEEP“.  Oh, but we do, very much!

I am still chuckling about Waffle sitting down in the stream too. I just wished I had caught it on camera.  I expect he will do it again. He thought it was a very good idea.

    That makes it about 66-67* Fahrenheit? You’ve got almost the same temp as we have here. This is our “summer” weather, though “summer” for those who actually live in Pebble Beach doesn’t usually start until September. Then it doesn’t normally get any higher the 72*, though we’ve had some fall weather in the 90’s in the last 20 years. Ugh!!!!

    I expect Waffle wanted to cool off!
    I know you said Lambie’s wool was not good quality but it surely could be used for something, stuffing cushions or insulation!

      I am going to have a shot at washing last year’s fleece next week. I am being given instruction. Once I have the finished product, I can decide on its future (possibly the bin!)

    One of my friends might be visiting Shetland over the next couple of weeks – I’ve told her about the Minnion tours and she’s hoping to get to meet them.
