That was a long 24 hours which turned into 8 days. My apologise for not blogging earlier but this week has been hectic with the children home on half term and two of our children's birthdays falling in this week. The weather has not helped making life just that bit harder work.
Yesterday morning just after 5am I was walking across a windswept field with the rain driving in my face calling in cows to milk. Normally this time of year they idly walk in with grass a plenty joined with the blanket of summer warmth but yesterday morning I was almost mown down as they stampeded into the cover of the yard and stalls, looking at me as to question why they where outside in the middle of winter.Lol.
Anyway would'nt of wanted to be any where else as have always enjoyed the challenge of what nature throws at you. I would enjoy a break from bringing in wood for our woodburner, all our heating runs of this. No flicking a switch for me if we need a bit of warmth. Nothing like a real fire but when you've been tending it since late September by June the novelty can wear of slightly.
Since I last blogged Ted, Meg and Murphy of Cleo's litter have left with their new families and Lindsey the last pup with us from Millie's litter left for her new home. I wish all these families well and you know where I am if you need me.
So we have one of Cleo's pups still with us until next Thurday and that is Milo. Then with have Smudge's nine Cavapoo pups who are now just over six weeks old. They are now out and about and basically all over the place all showing the gentle confidence of mum Smudge who is doing such a wonderful job with her brood. Cleo is pitching in & allows Smudge's pups to suckle her when Milo is having a sneaky swig still at 9 weeks old.
Fizz who I spoke of on my last blog who has a litter of f1b Cavapoos is doing well with her litter now over a week old but I am at this time unable to upload the photo's sent me by Sarah on my blog. Will see if she can send me in a different format, so then I can share these photo's.
I also must get round to uploading updates and photo's I have recieved lately but been having a slight allergic reaction to my computer at the moment which seems to manifest its self in the form of me thinking about going on the computer and next thing I know I have fallen asleep on the sofa and my husband is waking me around 11pm. He's happy because he gets to watch the football without me deliberately trying to have an indepth conversation with him during a match.Lol
Well I'm of to have a well earnt glass of wine after entertaining one of our daughter's today who's birthday it was and sit in front of the woodburner roaring away (love these winter June nights) and with football on again and the Canadian Grand Prix on later I think my husband will be waking me later from yet another slumber on the sofa.
