Just in time

After the busy weekend I had the car to empty and all the show paraphernalia to sort out and put away, not to mention get the gazebo dry.

As soon as the morning feed was over and I had checked over Chiquita's baby (who has yet to be named) I thought I'd get the Gazebo up in the hope it would dry before the rain we had forecast arrived. Mission accomplished, it is now dry and put away ready for the next outing.

I have sorted out all the knitwear, which never quite gets put away properly when I'm packing up at the end of an event and the stock lists have been updated. I need to get the online shop done next or I'll be having people trying to buy things I've already sold!

By the time we'd (my parents are here for a couple more days yet) nipped to Morpeth to get some human food and had the AA out to mums car which decided not to allow us to shut the boot at Morrison's, it was starting to go black.

The heavens opened just after we got home. I'm not going to complain because the grass desperately needs it but our new baby doesn't. He is now shut in the shelter with mum, Grandma Willow and her cria Layla.

The flies are being a real nuisance to him and have made his eyes quite sore. I think I will have to speak to the vet tomorrow and get some cream for them. He has gained another 200gms today which is good. I thought Id leave you with a photo of the little man.
