DSC_0769At last Spring has arrived and I can go out side and enjoy the sunshine   Us doggies just love having sun on our backs and I can now potter around the garden meeting various visitors and hope that the children will stroke my tummy.  Today was very busy and even the blacksmith has been shoeing a couple of the horses which gathers a big audience of mostly children.  I just love to clean up after he has been but Patsy gets very cross if she finds me!!DSC_0785

The daffodils are out and the anemone blanda is like me and comes out in the sun   I just love spending an afternoon in the orchard mousing. It has been such a long wet cold winter and I have to admit that I have not been on many of Patsy’s wet walks  My legs are just too short and I do hate getting my tummy so full of mud. When Robert and Patsy were away Ali and Lucy took us accross the fields through the snow to have breakfast at the Field Kitchen This is always our Saturday treat but that day I could hardly move on the way home as the snow had stuck to my long coat. However Lucy gave me a very nice warm bath when we got home and we could spend the afternoon in front of the fire.

It is just so nice to have Simon back in charge of the greeting desk as he always brings us tit bits and doggie bones.  Orla hardly leaves his sideDSC_0019

I feel so sorry for the lambs having to be out in the wet but they seem to bounce back.  Sadly I really have not got the energy to play games with them anymore.  In the olden days they used to think I was a funny looking shaggy lamb and   wanted to play  I was the one who always ran away!!  I dont like getting old.  All those things I used to do   like climbing trees to get rid of the squirrels, swimming the moat and going on long walks. Oh dear but I have had a very good life and I can still be top dog even if it is just pottering around the garden and of course I will not give up our Saturday walk to The Field Kitchen even if Robert does have to carry me part of the way
