More rain, dear?

They said my mum was mated to an exceptional stud male...
Wind battered, mud spattered - the second of two storms today has just passed over - if we'd not had the Eucalyptus tree reduced two weeks ago, it would be lying across the garden by now. The herd had their Christmas treat of vitamins ADE on sunday, and all were well behaved. They are in a filthy state, and will be heading off to a rested paddock to clean up. Joy has had a great run of felting workshops and sales evenings recently, resulting in lots of new ideas for next year.

In the last few weeks, I've taken down the ceiling over the Lounge and created a Gallery, so I've used the Christmas cards to hide the unfinished areas - I thought it was an inspired idea, but Joy has gone to bed in readiness before the big Christmas Eve(ning) gathering for friends, so I'll find out in the morning how inspired she thinks the result is...

Thanks everyone for reading and commenting on the blog, have a great, safe, Christmas with your families, friends and/or alpacas.

  2. Happy Christmas from us at La Grand-Mere...we too are having horrible rain and the high winds brought 4 more trees down, 3 of our farmer neighbours made a direct hit onto our new fencing!

  3. Happy Christmas Dave and Joy!

  4. Glad you survived the storms. The Gallery sounds like a great project - hope it all works out. Have a lovely Christmas. Shirley & Robbie
