Breakfast treat

After the morning feed run we headed off to Carol and Dave's for a breakfast treat.  Carol had kindly offered us sausage and bacon rolls in exchange for me taking knitting off her and providing Dave with more fleeces for carding - not a bad exchange eh!!  Thank you both, you are both so kind. 

Carol has already knitted her target for the month and it's only the 8th of January, and next on her list is a felting lesson on Thursday.  Hopefully she will be as quick at that as she is knitting.

The girls have finished off another large round bale today, they are getting through it at a ridiculous rate.  Hopefully Alan will drop off another one real soon, as they get through the small bales far too quickly! 

I'm not sure what the hay situation is like down south, but there is a shortage of it round here, what with two bad winters on the trot and reduced yields achieved last year because of the poor summer.

Don't have too high hopes on me learning the felting Debbie...I could fail dismally....although my eagerness to learn might stand me in good stead, I'm still not quite sure of the might need a lot of hubby says I have none!

Yes Debbie, hay is scarce down here, and consequently a premium price when you find it.
