Monday 31st May

First job this morning was to dose the lambs with white wormer to protect them against Nematodirus; the NADIS report said we were a red area.

I rode Smokey. Actually put on the saddle and bridle and rode him in the field. I think he was a bit surprised. So was I.

Tuesday 1st June

Dan started topping Laing’s Field. It takes about four hours, so he’ll do an hour after work until it’s done.

Tara and I took the ponies for a walk.

Monday 7th June

Another glorious day. Had a cheeky wee smallholder’s lie-in, then took our daughter swimming. Then some paperwork. How can it be a month since the last credit card bill came in? But it is.

Dan and I had a happy hour weeding in the veg garden before dinner.  Three of the four transplanted blueberries have survived he move. Mixed blessing as their expected demise would have given me space for loganberries and tayberries. I’ll find a space somewhere.
