So Kate went off on her holidays yesterday and I said I’d only ring her in an emergency …… so one phone call and one text later I thought I would get everything else off my chest with a blog!
I found one of the Old English Game birds dead yesterday evening…. no sign as to what of, not foxed, just lying on his or her side …. dead…… and I had to pick it up and dispose of it…. Well I have picked it up and it is in a bucket in the barn…. I am going to have to do something with it before Kate comes back ! So that was I the first YIKES COME BACK KATE moment !
The second YIKES COME BACK KATE moment was when I saw this …….
So one of our pigs … and I think it is Pamela, who is one of the 2 we are going to keep as our breeding sows….. hmn it is not too late to change our minds about which 2 we are keeping!!!
So my Mum has come up for a few days to keep me company, and she is proving to be very useful around the farm
So with her help I am almost ahead of the game ….. we weather proofed the old chicken shed … due for restocking early September… and I have done a bee inspection and they are all there, give or take a few!
So really I am doing alright…. only 6 more sleeps and Kate is back to take over again………. if I let her 😉
