No Free Time Yet, Carl!

Early start today in order to get all animals sorted before taking Sam to meet his friends. He had a very good day and thoroughly enjoyed himself (he will not let me say any more than that!).

Carl and I checked out some top end alpaca boutique knit wear whilst out and we were very heartened about the quality of our things so I am now knitting with renewed vigour. What we must have looked like in this posh shop with our working clothes on - I didn't even think about it until we got home and I realised Two Tone, the lamb, had left something nasty up the back of my jumper - we don't get out much and dressing up appears beyond us!

Carl's bike is now in his shed, a yellow Suzuki Beamish, but he is not allowed to play with it until he has Free Time - and there is no Free Time until the run is finished. I was, therefore, most annoyed with him when I went out to his shed just now and found him taking the wheel of the bike. He was supposed to be welding something he borrowed from Si at Ashdale Alpacas - it is a strange looking thing consisting of quite a lot of chains which will, apparently, make our life a lot easier tomorrow.

Finally, a view, taken by The Grey Haired Neighbour, across third field where Valtra Man can just be seen silage wrapping. Lovely!!


  1. I've also forgotten what dressing up's now a choice between clean wellies and dirty ones!

  2. Paul just said that sounds like me! At least we're happy ladies and that's what counts.

    Good choice of colour for the bike!
