Black Betty....

Starting to feel like a regular homeless motherless shelter here....... 
Introducing Black Betty..... Well that's what I am calling her......
she is tiny........
so cute..........
She jumps up on the seats no worries..........
Lamby at the bottom of the pic........she has grown lots..........the neighbours pet we are baby sitting.........and Black Betty............
 Here they all are slobbering on me.........
Add Boris and Lamby the inn does need to find more space as 2 more calves are arriving tonight....... 
More on them when I get a chance............ 
&&&
It's been a busy week............
I had a quick catch up sleep over with Jenny@ Bird on the Border and Fiona @ Bubz Rugz, then with Fiona and  Kris @ Tag A Long Teddies we had lunch and a bit of a stitch........
then an extra surprise treat the next day I got to have lunch with Fiona and Michelle @ Rag Tag Stitchin........
And I was having such a great time chatting with the girls I forgot to take any pics...........but it was so nice to catch up.............
&&&&&
today we did some cattle  work which I would have put off til tomorrow but more rain is forecast next week.........and we are behind as it is............
it's the kind of day you wear a long sleeve spencer and a skivvy and a jumper and a coat and a scarf and a beanie........AND you don't get hot enough working to take any layers off.........bbbrrrr......
Thank goodness I wasn't on the bike...........
Did I say how much I love my wood fire.........
gotta go the babies are just about here so I have to go feed them..........
Catch you later......
