A few of my favourite things ( also known as ‘happiness’)

Posted on

We’ve had a good amount of rain since I’ve chatted to you the last time, and I’m over the moon with the good start to the season! And the calves keep coming! So that keeps me happy too! All round happy, happy… 🙂

It is very simple to keep me happy. I love spending time with my children, which is a very rare occurrence these days. I don’t like heat, so make sure I stay cool. I love it if all goes well with my cattle. (Not so easy in this instance to ‘keep’ me happy, because everybody that farms with livestock, know that stuff happens…) I love a glass of wine to relax. I love visiting with friends, but only so much, then I need to beat a retreat to recover. (People generally take the oomph out of me…) I need alone time. A lot. To read, watch TV, write a blog, knit, or simply stare into space, but I need it like I need oxygen. Very simple.

OH! And it will be in your best interest to never ever let me get really hungry!

It’s been a little over a week since I’ve last written, and I am VERY happy to say, I am no longer waiting!!! We’ve had 9 calves born in the last week and a bit!!! 😀  Can you see the smile? From ear to ear…  (Sorry, but you are going to have to look at my ‘baby’ pics – I am like a very proud first time mama…)

Another thing I’m not waiting for anymore, is the first spring rain. I am sooooo chuffed that we had some lovely, soaking rain over the last 2 days, and it will make a difference to the grazing in a very short time.
