It would appear some are missing the musings of Shep. Well I ain't snuffed it, not been on holiday either, nowt exciting other than I've been busy. So this is just a quick posting to allay any fears that I may have gone AWOL (or worse).
The saying goes "no peace for the wicked" and believe you me, I have often asked my mother why I was born wicked!
Having just downloaded pictures off the camera which seem to go back a week or two I can see that I have been busy - taking photos if nowt else!
Much has happened, but most importantly the days are pulling out, it is light by 6.30am and up to 6.30pm. I awaken to the call of the curlew these mornings, a grand sound which marks the beginnings of springtime. The peewits (lapwings) are gracing us with their company and the skylarks have been going ballistic for weeks now, they are such a cheer to hear out on the hill.
Scannings are finally over for another year, horn burning, pre lambing innoculating, dosing, hopefully some stone walling are all on the agenda for the following three weeks before I head off lambing. I just can't wait to get away into those borders, see them cheviots again and have 6 weeks of peace and quiet, the way the time has been flying lately it won't be long before my wish is granted.
