Saturday

Hi guys,

This is just a quick entry to share with you our trip to the sheep farm yesterday - we actually saw a little baby lamb being born - I will give the full story with more pictures on Sunday. But what a wonderful thing to see - new life! It was really lovely.

 This was when the lamb was just minutes old and the mum was licking him to clean him up. She was a first time mum and the farmers did have to encourage her at first.

 This was the moment that baby Jim the lamb first suckled his mum - we watched as he struggled to his feet and then tried to find his food - we all had tears in our eyes.  The children were mesmerized! What a great thing to see. 

More pictures to follow tomorrow. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Im sorry I havent read your journals I'm really behind on alerts!! Right Im going now to settle down to a film for the rest of my Saturday.

Love Laine xxxxx

It's lovely when the lambs arrive.
They are in the fields round about us.
Wonder what Millie will make of them......
