It is supposed to be getting colder and drier - so far we have a bit of cold but still getting rain. Mud is the big problem as the alpacas - and the sheep - are churning the ground up and turning field shelters and poly tunnels into bogs. All I can do is put down straw and hope for the best but I do worry someone is going to come a cropper as they charge down for feed. Sapphire is limping but I can't see anything seriously wrong so I will give her a day and see if it improves. This is the sight that greets me every morning and I have to push everyone out in order to stare in dismay at the state of the floor and attempt to make it look less like a toilet/mud bath! Roll on spring!
This morning I managed to make it to computer club and have finally sorted my laptop a bit - I couldn't open word documents which meant the last invoice I sent ended up as a blank bit of paper - not ideal! Computer club is only down the road in the village and I shall be going again as it is very helpful.
Carl was a bit over excited last night as I told him I needed him for 20 minutes in the bedroom when he got home from work - the excitement did not last when he realised it was to turn the mattress and hoover under the bed!
At the moment I am feeling my age as artists I grew up with seem to be dying - Lemmy first and now David Bowie. I had posters of Bowie on my wall as a teenager and his records remind me of my youth - record players, LPs, Sunday evening chart countdown which I listened to on a radio with a green light that had to warm up before you got the station!
