No Sage Words this week as the Homestead pantry is crammed full of treats on account of Farm Girl’s anniversary of another time around the sun. Yep, she’s eleven years old and now presents reflect her passions: a riding helmet, a magazine subscription, a long hankered for CD…
and this little lady. The lamb now known as Ivy had been hiding out at the Kingdom Melton (West) with her brother (who remains unnamed for obvious reasons) in the care of The Princess and family awaiting the big day. Farm Girl now has her hands full bottle feeding the orphans and attempting to amalgamate two flocks. Good things take time…
and Eleanor, the original helicopter parent, is not impressed with the interest her sweet, little lad is showing in these rough-housing ratbags.
We channeled Rubeus Hagrid for party planning
but Harry, Hermione, Ron, and friends were bypassed when it came to the big ticket item
then it was into town for another viewing of the Farm Girl’s favourite feel-good fun movie, Mama Mia; Here We Go Again, and dinner at Casa Nostra of which no photos exist because we were all too busy partying.
Unfortunately, the Birthday Girl has now been laid low by a post-party bug so what was meant to be a grand finale picture of her bottle-feeding Ivy has been replaced by a red-nosed, pale-faced, but every-much-as-lovely eleven year old who has ventured out of bed for the first time in two days but still managed to smile for the camera for the sake of a readable blog.
Mama Mia, she’s a trooper!

Happy Belated Farm Girl! Sounds like the birthday was celebrated in grand style, and I’m super impressed with orphan lambs as a birthday present. When do I get mine? Riding helmet! That sounds like riding lessons are being persevered with despite tumbles. Well done. I also get to finally say that I know the music we’re talking about on this blog :). Yup, I was a die hard Abba fan back in the day…
We are living in sheep central now and loving it. Orphaned lambs are a fact of life…Happy to get you one, but you’ve got to collect 😊
ABBA and Harry Potter, the best kind of mash up. Wow where did those 11 years go! I’m pretty sure I didn’t get 11 years older in that time. 😂 Looking forward to catch up soon.
Well, I know I haven’t! Looking forward to hearing all about your aquatic adventure on your return 😊
Happy belated birthday though sorry about the nasty bug. Good luck with the babies.
They are very demanding but lots of fun
Happy birthday to the trooper! Hope she feels better soon. Such splendid birthday celebrations.
She managed to eat this evening’s meal so I think the end may be in sight
Oh, good! So miserable to be sick. At least she was well for her birthday celebration.
Belated happy birthday wishes too,
Thank you Mr T on behalf of the bouncing back eleven year old
Happy birthday Elsie – little Scout was born on the 20th September …. Love Liz
Close enough for Elsie to claim a kindred 😊 Congratulations and jubilations again to all xxx
Hi, There was lots to celebrate on Farm Girl’s birthday. Her 11th year was full of adventure (an overseas trip) and major life changes (moving house, town, city to country) I wish Farm Girl all the best for her 12th year.
Birthdays & kids yay, Hope the birthday girl is feeling better, the cake looks amazing.
The cake was worth all the self doubt and tears 😉
A very belated Happy Birthday to Farm Girl! I do hope she has fully recovered by now 🙂
She’s much better but thr cough continues…don’t they always 😊
Yes – always! Especially at night 😮
