Wizard of Oz

Where’s spring gone? I’ve just checked the forecast here for today and we have snow shower’s due later, are they having a laugh? Spring is supposed to be nice warm sunshine, grass growing weather, not weather in which all that’s growing is snowmen πŸ™

The supply’s in the alpaca barn are starting to run real low, especially on the straw front. The question is do we take in a new delivery or hope that this weather passes quickly and therefore we’d have enough to see us through.

I’d rather not take in big supplies at this time of year, as I like to have the barn fairly empty throughout the summer, so I can give it a big spring clean. It’s so hard to judge, who would have thought we’d still be getting snow.

I’m still not relenting on the welly ban, fortunately for my feet my children bought me a lovely pair of rubber yard shoes for Mother’s Day. If they hadn’t I might have had to relent as even with sock’s, my croc’s would probably have ended up frozen on to my feet πŸ™‚

I have to put in a big thank you here not only to my children, but also to Judi from La Grande Mere Alpacas, who responded to my croc with socks post with her rubber shoe alternative.

This gave my children, who incidentally I didn’t think paid any attention to my blogs, best I be nice when I write about them in future :), their idea for my mothers day present.
Yard shoes

So now my feet are warm and snug in my nice new shoes. I’m not commenting on the colour only to say I do feel a bit like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.

Unfortunately tapping my heels three times dosen’t magic me indoors in front of the log fire πŸ™‚

Which is probably for the best as my offspring also bought me a box of 120 white Lindt chocolates which seem to go down drastically in numbers when ever I’m near πŸ™‚

Thank you Kids, you spoil me x

    Glad your kids took the hint…my rubber shoes are looking rather sorry for themselves but…I didn’t get new ones for Mothers Day! They started of a rather similar colour to yours but they have dulled down a great deal…anyway, why not let everyone see that you have new shoes?!!
