Events update

I really didn't want to get up this morning, when I eventually got to sleep last night (don't go there!) it didn't seem more than five minutes later that the rain on the windows woke me up.

It was still raining this morning, however by the time I had finished the morning feed and clean routine the rain had just about stopped - typical! The girls were particularly pleased with their hay this morning, they are definitely getting ready for a change of field.

We have been updating the website again, the events page is now up to date with details of the remaining fairs we will be attending, some with and some without the boys.

It's always a fine line booking these things, because we only use yarn from our own herd our stocks are not only unique they are limited, so once it's gone it's gone. The online shop is up to date so if you have your eye on something it's an idea to get shopping early for the dreaded C word.

Finally I just thought I'd enlighten Rosemary about my 'dead' hands. I have Raynard's disease so the circulation in my hands isn't good which means my fingers are very often white or purple - hence Paul says they look dead.

I have mentioned your rock solution Barbara , however it seems to have fallen on deaf ears; I am still waiting for the ring I was promised on our 10th wedding anniversary which was over 7 years ago. I've offered to accept a new alpaca instead - I can use it's fleece to knit myself some gloves, that will help :-)

Sounds to me like there is an imperative need for another alpaca to give you more fleece to spin!
I'm busy today adapting the weighing sling!
