I asked mine to do something she's never asked her to do before and she was alert and joggy. It was her Oooh something new.

She does social distancing all the time, some days they are social sardines, all of them in the barn. Heads and bums! Then you get her an acre or two away from everyone, she's found some good grass.

Rosy Posy and Amber. Felix hid under the pallet the other night and got left behind. We heard a little wailing and out he came!
The garage is now a cat cave. But they don't live in. Everyone goes at night - they are out roaming about - but I think they do sleep in Chloe's barn sometimes as they have made little indentations in the straw pile at one end.

Ive had a lazy morning, what with lack of sleep sunday night due to lambing. Stressing about work, the dog being ill and the lame horse. Im exhausted. Hence my comment about breakfast in bed, ive been up several times though. Ive only just gone and seen the sheep in the shed and given them breakfast. Now off to work. I will try and ride this afternoon but its supposed to be raining once i get home so probably not. Wasted the dry part of the day, but i really am lacking enthusiasm just now with all the goings on. If anybody can muster some up for me.

Think I'm going to use some of this time (because work is petering off now) to have a clothes sort out. I've already got three bags full under the stairs all ready to donate. So I'm going to have a re shuffle. At some point it will be summer right? So I'll be able to cast off my layers and jumpers.....................................

All landed on their paws with you. Is mum still around?

I think it's this rubbish weather. Yet again it's windy and moderate rain. With my earache that's a non starter, I am already feeling cold.

It looks lovely outside here but so windy and cold when you actually get out. I'm currently sitting here with a head full of orange looking shampoo. Hmm. It's meant to come out brown. Not sure how that works. See what happens when I'm self isolating / social distancing?!!!!

So who fancies a cuppa this morning. Gosh I wish we would get some sunshine! Drizzle yet again, but hopefully no fog.

She's in season, when isn't she.

Got a book on the go anyone else into reading. Guess I could read if nobody in the coffee shop.
Bring alcohol but I don't have a license, so behave yourself.

I'm just ducking in for a quickie this morning, I'll have a nice creamy latte please, we've just had a skip delivered so will be spending most of today filling it with useless crap we seem to have accumulated from our garage and shed!

Got my coffee. Just eaten breafast. Museli and bran flakes, although floss actually had most of the bran flakes. Just walked Abbey down to feed the sheep and left mum to feed Floss. Chicken thigh and gravy granules. A few dog biscuits soaked in gravy, in an attempt to get her back on a dog diet, but she aint keen on those and refuses. All hand fed. Mum said she was full up and left some chicken. So i get back and do my breakfast and she wants some off my plate.
Drizzle here too and it is foggy. I rode to the end of the road and back last night in thick fog. It supposed to be nicer tomorrow.
Off too work very shortly.
