Tick follows tock..... follows tick follows tock....... the waiting continues.
Bobby is still wandering around in a daze. Today she is 333 days pregnant so, for her, she is breaking longevity records.
Sue has been on 'Bobbywatch' for the past four days as the day job has taken me away. However, I now have 6 days off and will be trying not to watch.
Actually those 6 days are going to be pretty busy. On Sunday we are celebrating our 20th Wedding Anniversary and have invited 90 people for lunch.........like you do. Today we are putting the marquee up (it is bound to rain) collecting garden furniture from all and sundry and generally tidying up the garden. Mmm, that's it then, the cria will be born on Sunday, at lunch time, guaranteed! Actually that would be awesome!
I have been meaning to tell you about a temporary visitor to the herd. Tisbury Dilly arrived with us a couple of weeks ago, she belongs to Liz a good friend who lives 2 miles up the road. Liz has a small herd and has the odd female to sell to cover costs and keep the herd small. Liz has some of the friendliest alpacas and Dilly is no exception. She always runs over when we go into the field and stands right in front of you waiting for attention. Whilst she does this her mouth is moving frantically as if she is trying to speak, she is a lovely girl, and it is nice to have daily cuddles forced upon us!
Dilly above, (yes I know she is completely the wrong colour), actually this is a rare shot as she is normally on the move towards us or as below when Sue was trying to take a picture of Bobby, ever so slightly in the way!
