Today we woke to a very welcome sight: Miss Sapphire waiting in her customary look out at the gate. Though far from recovered, she is certainly looking perkier. Bouquet number one.
Due to a troubled sleep, the majority of the human Homesteaders witnessed this morning’s sunrise. It was crisp and clear and breathtaking. No photos but, believe me, it was bouquet number two.
Social bouquets were aplenty: my GP’s bragging photos of his recently constructed glasshouse (he also did some health related stuff too), a long gossip about everything and nothing at the chemists, and a very surprised rave review of Sapphire’s appearance this morning from Ashleigh the Vet.
Then in the afternoon, a visit from two of my favourite off-Homestead people
and a real bouquet from their new-home garden. Today I am walking with a Spring in my step.

Delighted to read so much good news, it makes a change from the mes our UK politicians have got us into!
Sonetimes I need to accentuate the positive. I didnt say that I had to mask and glove up to go to the doctors…felt like a little bit of a backslide but I get it
We have to wear masks here but not gloves.
I choose to wear gloves as too much sanitiser makes my hands fall apart. It does make me look a trifle intense but I think its worth it!
Sounds a sensible decision.
Such good news about Sapphire! Glad the day has contained other bouquets as well, because even a glorious sunrise is not always enough to make up for lack of sleep. And those flowers – Spring is definitely happening for you all!
Sapphire is definitely a fighter. The grey lump of wool that looked decidedly ominous from my bedroom window turned out to be our snoring, convalescing sheep-lady not impressed by my agitated prodding
All is good. Long may this continue.
Cheers to that!
Good news all round! I am so pleased about Sapphire ❤
Hi, I am glad to read that you have ‘made it’ in your rural community and the ‘big smoke’ is now some alien location that you need to continue to have contact with. Good luck with the lambing season and the health of all your livestock.
Thanks, Margaret. The flock is ever changing at the moment; spring has definitely sprung!
