Ok so I’ve had a tough few weeks, but life goes on and so I am starting off afresh with my blog and will be wittering on about all the things that fill my life here at Fallowfield – animals, gardening cooking, sewing and of course my family.
We've had such lovely spring-like days here recently that your spirits are easily raised just by walking round the garden and in amongst the alpacas. Sadly we have had quite a lot of tree damage during the winter storms but this particularly fine specimen remains untouched. I can't quite remember what species it is - something my mother gave me years ago.
Alpacas are all doing fine . Admittedly we've only just weaned these crias. Thought we should err on the side of caution this year as the grass has been so poor and some of the them didn’t seem to be putting on the weight they should have. I just hope Livia and Ignatius are this relaxed when they are in the show ring at the Nationals in 10 days time!! At least they are looking somewhat drier these days.
If like me you enjoy eating and cooking good food, you will probably really enjoy Georgina Fuggle’s great blog which I have just discovered. www.fuggleantics.blogspot.co.uk. Great ideas and some super photos. Talking of food, time for me to go and check what’s in my fridge and get creative, as I’m beginning to feel peckish!
