I can honestly say that we are all very bored of this weather. It is starting to get to us.
We all weathered yesterday’s storm. There was, however, a casualty – Kappi’s rug which was found in his field utterly trashed and beyond repair. Apart from that, we got through it in one piece.
Although the storm necessitated rugs for the little ones, I am loathe to take them off yet.
To be honest, I think Albie would fight me for it! (Don’t you think he looks smart in it – like a little soldier-horse).
Albie luffs his rug. It is his second best friend. Newt, of course, is his first. That going without saying.
Newt is less keen on his rug as his restricts his movement hugely but, to be perfectly honest, I don’t think Newt has any ideas of leaping and prancing about much anyway. The ceaseless mud gets him down very much and I am thinking the little boys may have to come up to live round the house (or perhaps even in it, if I can get my way) later on in the month.
So we are down by one rug, which is annoying but not the end of the world.
Those that have them, need them and those that don’t, probably will never have one. Haakon would think his life was over if I rugged him up. Sort of like admitting he is old. We don’t mention it.
And this is now around the corner waiting to get us **** sigh ****.
As I said, we are all very bored of this.
