My New Neighbour

                                   

              

 

            

 

 

Good Afternoon, I thought today I would introduce you to my new neighbour Kirsty the Jacob's Lamb.  She has been living next door for the last 3 weeks, she was abandoned by her Mum and the family next door are looking after her for a relation who is a farmer and keeps a show herd of Jacob Sheep. Now some of you will not think this is strange but as I live in the middle of an estate it is something quite novel. She is being kept in the garden shed and is bottle fed.  She can get noisy when she get hungry. Its really rather funny when I am hanging out my washing and there is all this bleating and she just keeps on and on. The last time we had Ellen down for a visit she was very taken with her and got to stroke her.  She has grown a lot since I first saw her.  The girl that is looking after her says they will have her for about another 3 weeks or so then she can go back to the flock in the field.  Not been too bad a day weather wise we have had a bit of sun but still that cold east wind. 

        

 

 

Haven't our swimmers all been doing very well at the Commonwealth games we have been showing the Australians how for a change. The track cyclists have also been doing very well.   I think it must be obvious to you that I live with a sports fanatic. Stu loves sport of any kind shape or form so I do have to watch sometimes. I like certain sports not all but I can always take refuge up here in the study for a while. Think that's all my musing for another day so I will love you and leave you and I hope you have a good weekend. Love

How cute is she?   She won't want to go back with the flock after getting all this attention.  Have a good weekend.     Dawn

How nice to have a cute little lamb next door..... just for a short time but it sure is cute.... I like sports on tv better than a lot of the programs these days but my husband only watches fishing and golf and old movies... we each have our own tvs so its ok. I like watching gardening shows and home shows mostly.... that is until something better comes along but always enjoy a pretty flower gardening show.

Hi Joan,  She is a cute little thing isn`t she.  We have a herd of Jacob sheep that graze on common land in Burnham Beeches not far away, I must admit that are are much better looking as youngsters than adults!  We have that freezing cold wind here too.  I really wish it would warm up just a litttle bit.  Love your name tag, it`s so funny! :o)

Your name tag is brilliant Joan, love the photo. Many years since I bottle fed lambs, but this entry has brought back many happy memories. Thanks.
