It will be a very sad day when they go as our fields will be almost empty apart from a few female alpacas who guard the chickens.
The rain has been non stop since this morning so I was quite pleased to be going out for lunch with some friends at the pub across the road. The meal was lovely but we had a power cut which lasted for about half an hour and being a wet and miserable day it was quite difficult to see what we were eating even with the candle light.
Mike is really not well. He went out with a friend earlier in the week and thinks that he might have had some undercooked fish. The nurse is coming to see him tomorrow and he is hoping she will be able to diagnose his problem.
No sign of the cat - she is probably asleep amongst the hay bales in the barn, which is her favourite spot if it is wet or really cold.
