the weekend was good
forest walks and the puppers meeting other friendly dogs - so good to build on their social graces
lots of lovely food and plenty of chocolate
spent a few short moments gazing at a small batch of new fabrics and wondering when i will have the time to use them........
but still i ordered more
(how could i not have more of that bunny fabric???)
yet more packing
driving over to the site and unpacking all our worldly goods in to the barn
fighting off our neighbours hens that insisted on climbing in the back of the land rover despite the fact that it contained a whippet with Ninja tendencies.
enjoying looking after our neighbours four horses, three cows, two calves, llama, hens and two cats whilst they are in Spain
spending time with Jo the pig - remember him?
having to knock on his pig house door as he is sooooo lazy or perhaps slightly deaf?
and this week so far?
packing away precious books in apple boxes
piling them high
and then realising how many more there are still to pack :)
waiting for my peonies to open and longing for a spin in my beautiful car
and when all the packing gets too much ......
sitting and knitting flowers - they take such a short time and i hope to create a jug full x
this morning finds me up and about early, a few orders packed and posted, all animals be they farm or flipping spoilt (!) fed and watered and the wood burner lit.
the weather here is dry but cold - just as it should be
i have welcomed this cold snap in with open arms after all the heat we had in May....
still hoping for some sunshine in July - the thought of living in Betsy the trailer in the wind and rain is not a happy one.
as for the rest of this week?
a paddock to finish for Woody and Dillon who are not donkeys.....
more knitted flowers
finishing off my goodies for the Russian doll swap
ordering and making gifts for Talulla's birthday xxxxxxx
and trying desperately to find a decent collar for the massive Ghillie Mcdog
honestly - if he keeps growing at this alarming rate we will struggle to fit him in the house!
his head reaches up to my waist already and he still has at least a years growing to do!!!!!
despite his size he is the most laid back, gentle, charming, cheeky, soft coated hound ever x
every day he makes us laugh - he has no control over his long legs when running, talks and snores in his sleep, still manages to cram himself in to the dog bed and he puts up with me combing his hair so that he is sporting a rather fine looking mohican......
