Blog awards

It’s always nice to know that people are reading my witterings, especially seeing as I have been so bad at writing and completely awful at responding to the comments people have left me, I am sorry I do love getting comments and always mean to respond, honest!

Any way, it has been extra nice to be award a blog award not once but twice in less than a month, thank you so much Caro at An Urban Veg Patch and Philippa at Self-Sufficient Dreams

A surprise start to ‘D’ year…

When I up-dated my facebook page and Twitter feed that the first signs of kidding were appearing I didn’t realise just how close we were;

 Briony kidded that very night!

‘He’ still doesn’t have a name but is a love start to our year of ‘D’ names and my first third generation of breeding. We have had to take him away from Briony as he wasn’t very quick to his feet and got a bit chilled, a warm feed and a night by a radiator later and he is a strong little boy but is still not very sorted with his feet so will be completely hand reared.

And a new year begins

Recyced Christmas tree; Our Christmas tree and all its decorations were either from freecycle or others rubbish bins before the lights (also others cast offs) were added and the cats let back into the room

I can’t say that 2011 was the easiest of years; such a lot has changed forever and I don’t think anyone really naturally chooses so many permanent and final changes all in one go but I am still here and there is still much to look forward to.

The end of last year, or maybe more or less the whole of last year, was more than crazy and many of my plans for it have been all but forgotten about, but I would still like to do them and more.

And 2012 is set to contain some exciting projects and hopefully lots for time for blogging.

Happy New Year everyone!
