Urgent! Sheep loose in the lane!

I sheep, 2 sheep, 3 sheep, 4 sheep ... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I sheep, 2 sheep, 3 sheep, 4 sheep … zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

For all devotees of the Mr Men books this is now a moment to wander off into a little day dream: ‘Goose asleep in the rain..’ etc.
Back here in Somersetland the sheep are out all over the place. I met one on a B road last week, wandering around in an aimless fashion and terrifying the drivers. (For those of you outside the UK a ‘B road’ is somewhere between an ‘A road’ and a ‘C road’ – and not an expletive in sight!)
Meanwhile, the Rectory is awash with sheep – in every conceivable shape, size, colour and medium. there are even 25 half-finished shepherds’ crooks in the hallway, waiting to topple over and trip you up – so enter at your own risk.
More pics after the ‘Advent Craft event’ tomorrow – this one will whet your appetite:


About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset - but have had to leave the countryside at a little distance, having moved into town.

    I’ll do my best to wield a camera tomorrow. I gave one little girl a newly-made model sheep today and her joy was infectious!

    This is such a fun time of year! We don’t have too many sheep around here. Mainly cattle and some goats. What we find at inconvenient times in the road, though, are deer. They have refused to be displaced by the suburban sprawl and dine on flowerbeds and such. Beautiful to watch — if they are not in the middle of the road. 🙂

      We have sheep, cows, deer, badgers, foxes, hedgehogs, horses, dogs, cats, goats, llamas, donkeys and plentiful rodents. Plenty going on – without numbering the birds and amphibians .. and, as you may recall… slugs and snails!
