Work in progress

Looking up our one acre field with some of the new fences. In the foreground, Timothy the sheep. In the middle ground, Eldest Daughter. In the background, the white blob that is Wilson, the springer spaniel. To the left is Timothy's house.

Looking down the field, the Man of the House has brought tea out to the workers. In between them you can see Eldest Daughter's boyfriend (and owner of Wilson) tending the fire. He has been remaking all the fences and clearing scrub, rubbish and unwanted fences (like the one on the left) ready for some new arrivals.

The pointed gable end and the building on the right are the back of our house. The others are outbuildings, and our neighbour's house is on the far left.

Eldest Daughter in the Krushable Kalahari leather hat I bought her for her birthday and pink gloves (you can see her pink wellingtons in the first photo). Timothy her sheep is very interested in her cup of tea, and is trying to persuade her to let him taste it, as he is sure that sheep like tea.

My hubby has a hat like that. They are dashing on whomever wears them, I think. What a lovely errand for your husband to perform.

Hi Val,

Have you changed email addresses? Haven't heard back from you for a while now. I do want to keep in touch, even though I'm no longer part of the blogging world. We each are, after all, The Other Val!

Oooo, I would love to be in that middle photo and send it home to Australia saying "Look at me in Dorset!"...such English green-grey colours! Very bright blue sky here today,and coloured bikes and jerseys everywhere for the Tour Down Under, but also uncomfortably hot.You have interesting sheep also.Ours generally are brown, scraggy and brainless.Would knock the cup of tea of your hand!

What lovely photos, Val. How nice to have the handy boyfriend fixing fences :) A willing worker is always appreciated!
Good of your hubby to bring tea. It looks like a rather chilly day.
Perhaps Timothy is right...maybe sheep do like tea :)
