What a difference a week makes

Carol & Dave finally managed to make it back home today from Cuba. The local roads are still very bad and there is no way they could get their car so we picked them up from the Metro station and delivered them home safely. It was nice to be able to do something for them for once and they are so good to us and always helping us out not to mention doing all the knitting and carding.

Talking of knitting, despite being on holiday Carol has been busy and returned with a pile of goodies for me. I think I prefer her knitting location to mine......
What a difference a week makes, this was what greeted them earlier when we dropped them off at home. It was 2.30pm and already the temperature had dropped to -5.With the bitterly cold temperatures we have frozen pipes again so it is back to carrying warm water down for everyone, the girls in particular are drinking lots of water, probably down to the vast quantities of hay that is being consumed! Thank goodness for Alan's' top quality hay supply.
As has become he norm, the boys were all queued up at the gate ready to go to bed. It really is funny how they know they go in separate directions too.

Knitting in a hammock sounds bliss!

My alpacas are also drinking a lot and much prefer the water warm!

Well I was hoping Paul would use his camera trickery and make me lose a stone in such luck! We are warming up at last, wish we had alpaca coats too.

Can't believe how much stock Debbie has managed to sell whilst away....and that's in the bad weather too!

Thanks again for today!
