That Will Teach Them
Its been a dry cold day, when I went off to the craft group at 9am it was -4 when I came home at lunch time it was 0 and I don't think it rose above that all day.
Two little furry visitors must have thought they would come in from the cold for a free feed
that will teach them to go after the animal feed, they are now residing in the compost bin,
Lambert was full of the joys of spring today
prancing around his field, he usually has a bit of a chat with Kara through the fence when we do the afternoon feed.
He is starting to get a nice looking fleece on him
well to me it looks a nice fleece and I am sure Lambert thinks he is a handsome fella.
The Alpacas fleeces are thickening up as well
The babies are almost as big as there mums now
March the babies will be separated from there mums for weaning. They don't feed very often now from there mums and are happy joining in at feed times , as mums are pregnant they need those last few months to nourish the unborn cria.
Today at lunch time I fried up some Christmas cake in butter
and had it with some cream, it was nice and crispy on the outside and soft and gooey inside, it reminded me of clookie dumpling (Scottish fruit dumpling) that my mum used to fry up in butter.
My new laptop is now all set up, it didn't take long to do and it was really easy you just follow the on screen prompts.
Thank you for all the suggestions for my Kilner Jar, I am still undecided to what fill it with, but I am going to get another one.
Hope you all stay nice and warm in all this cold weather.
