SSCS ornie.......

wow what was supposed to be a quiet week has been pretty busy.............
We put up some fairy lights..........I love fairy lights.............We had some neighbours over............otherwise no one would ever see them..........
When we first got marreid we put up lights for many years...........very few people ever saw them..........it's was more just because we loved to do it.........
this week has seen some early starts to get some sheep work done............well I am normally up way to early anyway but usually out in the garden putting hoses on and fiddling around in summer........it was pretty dusty..........I tried to stay out of the worst of the dust as the last few times I have ended up sick...........weaning (taking the lambs from the ewes), needling the lambs with vaccination - think childhood vaccine programs and also putting in the required visual ID ear tag..........you can't sell them without the tag  in their ear...........
But exciting news is that my SSCS arrived.......we only get 2 deliveries of mail a week if we are lucky and a bundle of mail came in earlier in the week when I was busy and I forgot to go back and then I found my SSCS parcel............
thanks Marika in Germany........hanging on the tree now how cute is this ornie..........the main present is safe under the tree.........

WISHING everyone a Merry Christmas...............please take it that if I comment on your blog during the year I have read your Christmas post if you have put one up or if you do tomorrow and I have thought of you as I read them but just too busy to comment on all of them........
Stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas........
Hope the man in the big red suit finds you.......
Catch you later......
