This morning I didn't feel too happy. Last night our dog decided to bite Grace on her face (without provocation of any kind). A trip to the hospital, three stitches to the lip and a course of antibiotics and home again. Today Grace is a bit miserable and the rest of us are tired from the late night (2am is really too late to be going to bed). I am just angry and sad. And glad that the injury was not worse than it is.
There was no time to dwell on it though, jobs must be done. Today was the day for some lamb wethers to go to market which meant an early start loading them on the trailer and driving them in to the saleyards. Later in the week I'll be advertising some of our younger Suffolk ewes (and the two that always escape).
On to the title of this post. A happy little parcel or two did lift my spirits. A lovely parcel as part of the D2E forum Christmas ornament swap.
A sweet angel card, a garland of fabric holly leaves and a Christmas pot mat from Deb. And I also received a few packets of seeds from Mr Fothergills.
I'm still none to happy about the dog but my day has brightened.
