Feeling sorry for myself!

I should have been going to a wedding today, my nephew's in fact - got the dress, a lovely White Stuff one, shoes and bag all ready to go - instead i'm sat here feeling sorry for myself - why? Well all week i have had toothache and on Wednesday i had to have my tooth out - it was a big tooth at the back and i knew with all the pulling and tugging , which i did not feel at the time, i would pay for big time when the local wore off! Sure enough, i have been, not only that now another tooth is being a bit tender - probably because of the above! Now i know in the general scheme of things i don't have much to moan about but it just seems to be going on and on!! So darling hubby and his mother have gone to the wedding without me.

Well enough of the whinging, i just need to keep topped up with painkillers and get on with things. I can't believe a whole month has gone by - where did it go? Things have been pretty busy, especially on the animal front! Two little kittens are not so little now - absolutely full of themselves and always into mischief! They don't seem to be in a hurry to go outside, which i think is because when we open the back door it leads out to the paddocks and a huge new world which they find a bit daunting at the moment! However they seem to be quite happy, for the moment, causing havoc indoors - one thing they just love is the photocopier - they sit and watch it for ages and are fascinated! With all this lovely weather all the animals are moulting like mad - especially the horses, but with the warmth comes the midges and Tops has now become a hoodie!! It helps stop the midges from biting him and then causing him to itch and make himself sore. So far he has kept it on but i don't think he's too impressed - in fact i think he's a bit embarrassed!
I had to look after a friend's farm for a few hours and they were in the middle of lambing, and, you guessed it, i had two ewes lamb whilst i was there - one of whom i had to help as her lamb was huge and got stuck - happily mum and lamb, a boy, are well. These cuties had been born about two hours before i got there.
These two popped out whilst i was 'on duty' but mum managed very well on her own!

I have been doing a little sewing - i love these little houses, such fun to make.

Here is a sneaky peak of something i have been making for a very special friend and i hope to finish it this week!

Well i hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine.
