It’s been a busy month. We have been packing and posting parcels from morning until night so now we are all enjoying a little respite.
We finally got the beef back from the butcher and it was absolutely delicious. No prizes for guessing what we’ll be having for Christmas dinner!
The weather has been pretty dreadful, but not for the usual reasons. Instead of inches of snow, we have had to endure gale force winds for weeks and unfortunately, lost the roof of the cow shed. Luckily we no longer have cows to fill it.
Rather than trying to fight our way across the field with bales of hay and buckets of water whilst nearly being blown off our feet, we decided to bring all the sheep indoors where they are easy to manage. They are all tucked up on a thick straw bed and very happy
We are looking forward to a few well-earned days off over the festive period, although they’ll be no respite the croft chores.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
