So much has happened in that time that I just have no real idea where to begin. We have had some great fun moments and a few really sad down days but all is okay now and we are back on track( for a while at least).
I thought what I might do is a huge post of photos and a few comments here and there to catch up.
We have a nice lot of baby lambs born this season, all mums and bubs doing well .
We enjoyed a lovely lunch at a local hotel with family and friends.
Brian requested that I make him some more hot,hot,hot mango habanero sauce ,so I obliged.
He also helped Brian clearing sticks and burning them,
I used two halves ,baking them,
We lost our beautiful big Light Sussex rooster, think he just collapsed and died from a heart attack.
On our return to the farm we also brought home 3 roosters, two light sussex and 1 coronation sussex that were surplus to my neice. We will probably keep 1 or 2 and rehome the 3rd . They are lovely birds.
We brought two of our grandchildren back to the farm for a week while their mum and dad had to work.
We had ordered a trampoline and and a pushbike and Poppy put them together, They had a great time playing on them. ( There are only so many times a day you can go and collect eggs).
We did lot's of craft activities, our daughter had packed a whole bag of things which were fun and interesting.
We made an ant city, and a worm farm.
We met our daughter in Newcastle to return the children to them, had a night away and a meal out and a bit of shopping. We had a totally exhausting but truly wonderful time with the kids and are looking forward to their next visit.,
I caught up with my mum last week for a quick meal, she is doing really well considering her age( 93 this year) and she was very proudly showing me her potted plants that she has at the rear of her small unit she lives in still independently .
She had been my friend and companion for over 14 years, being my protector while Brian worked away weeks at a time, we were inseperable until a couple of days ago.
Here are a few pics...there are so many I found it hard to choose.
We miss her terribly, the house feels empty... I know this will pass( we have been at this point before and recovered), but we are taking Tilly's loss hard.
She is resting now, no more pain or struggle,
Sleep well Tilly Girl,
you were the best. !!!!
I will endeavor to update a few more posts, I just couldn't fit in all that has happened in the last two months ,
Take care of yourselves and your loved ones,
All the best until we meet again.
Jane and Brian.
