The Nativity: The Shepherd's Story

Back in September, Play It By Ear were here to film an episode of their Nativity series of monologues. Teddy makes a special guest appearance - and even I have a cameo.

Merry Christmas!

A Literary Night In

Pip relaxes on a night in with her two books, Keeping it Real and Tails of Two Pips.

"Which to read first?"

"Tails of Two Pips - kisses, Mr Big Pip."

"That's me."

"I like Mr Big Pip's book too. He's really big."

Thank you for the books.

Love, Little Pip.

Five on Five

It was Ben's fifth birthday on the 5th December. He celebrated with a yummy Lily's Kitchen dinner.

What a handsome chap - here's to many more years!

Extended Family

I was collecting together photos for the annual calendar, and decided a good way to round off the year would be to have a portrait that included the newest member of the pack, young Jess. I found a section of a wall that I thought would give us a good backdrop.

It was then a case of getting everybody onto the wall. Pip scrambled up with little encouragement. Jess, Sheila and Ben had to be lifted.

But at last, we got our photo.

What a cute little family.

A Very Mucky Pup

When we were cleaning out the dung spreader, Jess took it upon herself to make sure all the dung was kept under control.

It was really funny... but Jess was so messy!

Khaleesi Comes to Visit

Today there was a rather unusual visitor in the form of Khaleesi, the Harris Hawk.

It made for an interesting walk, as Khaleesi kept close to her owner.

Seeing such a beautiful bird up close and in flight was a real treat.

And... landed. A tasty treat awaits.

Another chick leg, please.

Dad had a go too.

Khaleesi sees all.

There are a lot of photos of Khaleesi, but only because she's very pretty.

Sheila and Walls

When she's helping us in the sheep pens, Sheila likes to jump on and over walls.

She's not afraid of heights my any stretch of the imagination.
