Waiting and watching starts again

Glorious weather here but it looks like we are in for a bit of a storm soon - the barometer is dropping and the wind is picking up.  We had a rained off shearing day on Wednesday but did manage to go and help with another shearing in the evening - expert shearing, managing to do blacks in a barn in the evening, not easy!  We are always looking to learn and improve our own shearing so Carl has been muttering away ever since and fiddling with his shearing equipment.  We did a few more of ours last night and what I expected has turned out to very likely be correct - I feel I may definitely have a couple of pregnant ones!  We did a mating back in July last year but then, with moving coming up and various other time issues we did no more, no spit offs - just decided on a year off.  I am not so sure it will be a year off!
