Sorely Tempted!

I am not complaining as we do need it but - it is raining so my photo taking is a bit limited!  We have been continuing halter training with some - the cria are a little young at the moment but they are getting used to having their feet picked up - that is not going too well!  Here is a good one instead!

Carl investigated my car and decided it was the Lambada valve and an issue with the exhaust intake - the spanner went away but then a yellow trombone appeared so he has told me I have to take it to a garage and get them to find the fault on their machine.  I have never taken a car to the garage in my life - I just tell Carl and he grumbles about a bit and then fixes it - I think he was in a bad mood because he appears to be getting it some spark plugs and things.  I am temporarily limited to a small radius of home and no where with traffic lights or narrow bridges as that is where it cuts out.

I have found a use for my surfeit of long, over grown runner beans as Caroline loves them - I only like the little ones and when you forget to pick runners they get long very quickly so Caoline is being a great help!

A contingent of Carl's family came to visit at the weekend and kindly removed some of the produce as I was becoming overwhelmed - turnip glut now - but I think they can go to the sheep.  I had made a very nice cake which I left on the side to fill with home made plum conserve (plum jam which went wrong - didn't set which shows how bad I am as plum jam always sets!).  However, Little Wee, the cat, is very partial to cake and got on the worktop whilst I was knitting and ate the top.  I was sorely tempted to just cut the top off and ice it up but Carl said I couldn't so we had shop bought cake instead.
Now I have to get ready for a visitor.


  1. I'm sure it would have been fine, no one would ever have known, except Little Wee ;-)

  2. Ohhh I recognize Eileen, such a long time to all of you my english family !!! Odile

  3. Ah, it reminds me of the Christmas when my custard-loving cat discovered the trifle…….

  4. You should have just iced it...who would have known...well as long as you didn't write about it on your blog! We had a cat that pinched a lamb chop from under the grill whilst it was cooking...pity it was Ron's, mine was fine!!
