Speaking of Monday's glorious weather, mum and I had been invited up to come and see the lambs in the lambing shed at our Landlord's farm and decided that was the day. Lambing is always a super busy time for farms but the Landlord still found time to chat for a bit while marking the lambs. We spent a little time with the orphaned lambs who where being pretty noisy. Now they weren't technically orphaned but it's difficult for the ewes to look after more than two lambs so any extras and put together and either given to ewe's who've lost their own lambs or looked after by the farm workers.

It's been a really busy week again this week with extra shifts at the garage (to stop me from wanting to move on to the cafe) but there's been plenty of other things to be getting on with.
Last weekend I stayed in town and since the other half was out at work for most of the weekend I spent my non-work time knitting and getting to work in his garden. My mum is in charge of the garden at our house but in town I have free reign. Although the place was completely abandoned for some time I intend to keep busy getting it back to it's wonderful old self. On Sunday evening I cleaned all the rubbish out of the garden. Surprisingly there was an entire length of guttering under all the grass - as opposed to the short length I thought was under there - and the supposed ground sheet lying off to the site was actually an entire tent! Once all that was cleared up I got to work filling in an attempted pond right in the middle of the grass although the local cat and sometimes house guest Jake insisted on trying to help by getting under my feet so it did take a little longer than expected. As you can see the plants have taken over while we weren't looking but hopefully we can work together - the plants included - to make this a really pretty little space!
(This is what I'm working with. Just taken out the rubbish and filled the 'pond')
My knitting has been going well with more and more orders for my hats are coming in - really exciting stuff. It's even drawing some interest back to some of my other items too!
(another new hat!)
Well I think that's all I have to report for now - I'd better get back to knitting!!
Chat to you all soon!
