The nasty virus that Graham had last week, finally came my way! I managed to have just enough voice to teach on Saturday morning, none to sing in the Talent Show that evening, and I've been in bed ever since. Today I have risen up and made it to work!
This morning we looked out the window and lo and behold, our ewe had given birth to triplet lambs!! We've had to bring one of them to work since Mum rejected the third one. Now we'll look for a new home for this cutie (meanwhile we'll enjoy some cuddles!) and will try and do some work in between...
