Dancing the Night Away
The first twin lambs born at Jigsaw Farm on 25th March 2010. I couldn't get any closer, mum was a little nervous and lambs were very much staying with her!
And here's a close up of Molly; the most laid back collie in Northumberland.
Fortunately, the fog has cleared today and we have been able to move the ewes into our front field, which means we can watch them all the time. Our new assistant, Emma, has settled in well and has just let me know that six ewes have given birth over night. I will of course update my blog with photos.
Amy went to the school disco last night and had a whale of a time. She dances the night away each time, last night having found a dance partner who apparently told her she is beautiful. "He's got a crush on me," she announced, "but I just want to be friends." Quite right too, I told her. Before reminding her that she's 10 years old and there's plenty time for all that when she's, ooooh, in her 30's perhaps? Only joking; I didn't say that, but I did think it...
Now I'd like to ask you all a favour; a lovely lady known as Jo Middleton who blogs for Cuddledry has very kindly published a guest post of mine today of which I wrote about Amy's early diagnosis of autism. If you have a couple of minutes to spare, please nip over and read it here, it's very short and would mean a lot to both Jo and I. It's Autism Awareness Day on 2nd April so I shall post something further then. Many thanks xx
