« on: February 12, 2009, 08:11:47 am »
just hate it when your phone rings early mornig , its not that i wasnt up, had been up since 4  ::)

mine rang about 7 this mornin, i didnt recognise the number and was dreading who was going to be on the other end    :-\

Anyway, i answerd it, and it was one of the local lads,
He had just been round next doors sheep and had spotted a newborn calf in mine   
I'v just been over to have a look and i've got a little red heifer this morning     
Wotta way to start the day   ;D    ;D

Lucky you! Phone calls at that time in the morning are generally not, in my experience, bringing good news, so you've bucked the trend!

Hope the laddie got a nice thank you for alerting you to the new arrival.  Could have got really chilled if you have the snow most folk have been having.
