Potential Album Cover

The blog today is a total cop-out.

After my daily horse/pony check, I came home and cleared some wood from one of the sheds and my back is paying for it now.  I am in pain and feeling very tetchy.  Painkillers are not cutting it.  Not even slightly. I hurt therefore I am.

So here are my photos of the sheep that could be a potential album cover if anyone needed.  Please do say if you want.


And one of my little not-so-precious…. (she was returned by a neighbour – oh, the shame).

And her friend (who was not).

Sorry this is brief but I am in that awful state of don’t-know-what-to-do-with-myself-because-I-hurt-so-much stage and I can’t take any mind-altering painkillers until later tonight, when I have tucked up the Minions in their stable for the night otherwise I won’t reach their stable!

Hopefully it will all calm down by tomorrow.

    Those are all great pictures. Hope you back is better soon. I started using CBD patches on mine and they are great. I am sure your back is much worse than mine. Love your sheep!

    Oh not a cop-out. After all, we need “The Regal Bleeters, Vol 1” cover! Sorry a certain small dog was returned by the neighbors. And I do hope you get some relief from the pain soon!

    You have put me in my place, I’m feeling sorry for myself because I have a slight sore throat. Sending you strength and mental painkillers to help with your back.

    You need a long, uninterrupted rest/sleep.Yes, I know, fat chance of that happening.

    But please try to put yourself first. If you aren’t well all others will be last anyway.

    Oh so sorry for your sore back, Frances. Praying you’ll start to feel better by tomorrow. Love all the pics today…some real keepers there!

    Ouch!!! I’m surprised you manage with the photos and horses at all! The worst part of back pain, in my experience is the Loo. Take care!

    Your blog posts are the highlight of my mornings. Everyday I think I should write and tell you so and then end up getting busy with our animals etc. I love all of the pictures! Your horses are gorgeous and the minions too, of course. So this post was a joy, not a cop out, because I love all the sheep but have a soft spot for Maggie, Edna and Madge. Quite enjoy seeing Monster and the dogs too.

    I’m sorry you are suffering so much with back pain. I have back pain too but not anything as severe as yours. I know what you mean about not being able to take the pain-killer drugs because there are chores to be done.

    I don’t remember how I found your blog but glad I did. I am a first time mother of a newborn baby boy and when I can’t sleep at night after waking to feed him, your posts help me to relax and eventually drift off to sleep. I hope your back pain can be relieved soon. Best wishes from California.

      Oh my word. A newborn baby boy. I remember those wee small hours very well. I am glad my small life in Shetland helps you to relax. Lots of love xx
