BBC Countryfile Fame

Today was the big day, and I've got to be honest I think I was as nervous this morning as I was when they were filming on Tuesday!

I was so worried how I would come over, if it would look 'right' and if I said the right things. You never know what is going to be edited out either, after all they were filming all day.

My claim to fame from now on is going to be that John Craven said my name. I've watched him since being a little girl and his Newsround days. I was hiding behind a cushion to start with though, hearing yourself on the television is very odd. I was pleased with it; Rehannah and Peter from the BBC did a great job.

My phone was going like crazy afterwards with people saying how natural I was and how well it came over, so thank you. I made sure the animals all got praised as soon as it had finished. I can't believe they showed me chasing Eubank (the lamb) out of the kitchen!

Hopefully it will encourage other people thinking of pursuing a dream to look into it seriously especially those thinking about alpacas.

Hi Debbie,

We commented on the last blog post, but we have to do it again. What an excellent job you did. It was fantastic. A really good promotion for the entire UK alpaca industry. Well done from all at Wellground.

Rob, Les and Leanne.

No we didn't, we were listening to your every word. I have it on Sky+ so we'll have another look.

Great piece.

This is unfair - It's on the BBC countryfile website - but they block access to it from outside of the UK.

Congratulations anyway, sounds like it went well

Well done, you did well. Eubank was a wee star!! He was lovely and I can see why they put his antics in. You were very professional - I was impressed at your spinning and fibre products. Great piece! We were in our local newsletter last week - A day in the life of an alpaca and llama keeper!! Only a few mistakes.
