The trouble with having your own personal rain cloud that likes to accompany you every time you go away is
that you have to make sure you take plenty of other things to keep you occupied whilst waiting for it to run out of water.
Such was the case when we went up to Scotland last week it wasn't all bad I have to say we did get three really good days and a fourth passable day.
Knowing exactly how our holidays tend to pan out I did go armed with a number of books and of course some crochet to keep me busy.
It always amazes me that no matter what the weather these poor devils are in the fields and up in the parkland with their lambs.
This poor little chap looked really fed up and I think I would of been too.
Even back at the farm these ladies stay out in all weathers although they do come in when they are due to calve. Now D would tell me that's the breed and that's why they have so much hair to keep them warm but I know where I would rather be.
Even when we did get a dry day the fields were still so wet that the horses and ponies on the farm would be sloshing about in the mud.
But of course there are those of us who love nothing better that to be wallowing about in the mud.
Meet Totty the pig who number 3 thought was just the best thing he had ever seen (latest obsession is pigs of any kind).
But for me the best part of being on the farm was
Aren't they just the cutest things you ever saw.
The one with 95 on his rump number 3 named Lightening McQueen as this is his number in the film 'Cars'
We even got to have a go at feeding some of those who had been lifted from their mothers because they were the smallest of a set of triplets and sheep can only feed two lambs.
I thought I would introduce you to Mr. P who was with us all week around the garden. He would be shouting for his breakfast around 7am and wouldn't shut up until the sun went down. Number 3 thought he was great and no matter where he was or what he was doing at the cottage as soon as he would hear the call of Mr. P he would say 'the Pheasants back' and run off to watch him out the window. I must admit there are quite a few photo's of him he was quite entertaining.
I have to show you the kind ladies
who provided us with
gorgeous fresh eggs every morning. Michael & Shirley leave you a complimentary basket of eggs for your arrival but you can wonder down to the chicken coup and collect them yourself throughout your stay.
Although there are many more photo's to share I think these are more than enough to keep you busy for now.
Have a lovely Easter one and all
