Famous last words

We have  had another busy weekend and would  it not be for our two sets of Pearson friends we would probably still be out there now with the spotlights!

Yesterday first thing off we went to the Scottish borders to deliver four boys which had been purchased by a lovely could.  I am absolutely rubbish when it comes to selling them, I think I managed to hide my tears well.

Here are the boys happily munching their new grass, I'm not sure they even battered an eyelid when I left!

Later on in the day we had three new arrivals, one gorgeous grey girl from one of the girls on livery here, and two young hens who needed a new home, well one hen and one cockerel. 

Today we had sheep jobs on the list, thankfully both sets of Pearson were coming over to lend a hand, there is no way we'd of managed on our own.  It took hours and I blame Carol, the ewes came in relatively according to plan and Carol said how easy it was, almost immediately the lambs then started disappearing through the fence.  Two hours later they were all back!

We are so lucky to have such good friends in the Pearson's (unrelated!), Gill even bought tome delicious cakes to keep us energised.

What a gorgeous little grey!

Lambs are a real pain for escaping!

Well I won't open my big mouth again in a hurry but the hard work was all worth it for your lovely pizza and Gill's cake at teatime...........
Lovely to meet the other Pearson's too. A memorable day in more ways than one...........
