Life is travelling along pretty much the same for us. We go out only to check horses or exercise ourselves and our routine works well.
After doing the horses and ponies, every afternoon I go to my she-shed and continue to make sheeple (this one is waiting for his coat) and in the evening, I transcribe my Great Great Aunt Kate’s diaries. 1906 has been reached so that’s 12 years done. I find it fascinating and am enjoying it very much.
As for the sheeple side, well, I keep making them for a non-existent market. The shop that sells them is closed at present and the visitors are not here.
But I enjoy making them and will just keep going until a) I run out of wool or b) I run out of shed space – whichever arrives first.
In other news, a certain old lady (namely Edna) has told me she is very probably in lamb.
Despite my vet’s best efforts when they were first rescued off the open hill where they were deliberately dumped with ear tags cut out, I would think a lamb or two may be around the corner next week.
If there is any bright side to this, at least (and I need to have this confirmed by my sheep expert), Madge is not in lamb so as Edna is very tame, she will be easy to help if required. I am about to hit Youtube and look for an instant lambing course for those that know nothing. This is not what I planned.
Lamb(s)….. I can’t say I am thrilled but what will be, will possibly be. Please let it go smoothly because I really do not know what I am doing and can’t even pretend that I do.
