Home Alone

This afternoon my nearest and dearest are all heading off to the cinema to see the newest Harry Potter movie. I am not a fan of the cinema. Never have been, I don'tlike the smell of the movie popcorn (they love it) and I always get a bit fidgety when I have to sit still for too long. I can't even remember the last time I went to the movies. Movies at home are ok for me because I can talk, I can sew or I can just get up and walk away.

I have been enjoying a little rest indoors because it is very windy this afternoon and decided to finish off a few sewing projects. Grace asked me to make her a group of Babushka dolls from this book. They really are a cinch to make up.I just have to jazz them up a bit with some beads and buttons and they are done.
On the afternoon shift at home I also got to watch these two little ladies come into the world. Their mother had been waddling around for the past week looking like she might pop.

This is one reason why we chose Suffolk sheep as the breed for us. Black lambs. They are especially cute. The two lambs born a couple of days ago are only cross-bred lambs but purebred suffolks are born black and over time grow white wool on their bodies whilst their faces and legs remain black.
I am also on fox and crow alert. Foxes and crows love vulnerable little lambs. I guess they must eat too but not these babies thank you.
Bye for now,

Thought I was the only one who hates that Movie Popcorn smell!
The lambs are gorgeous!!!! Do Crows take lambs?....I would'nt have thought them big enough to Lug a lamb away to eat!

I didn't know that but I was wondering when I saw them. I thought Suffolk with black lambs, hmm.

My eldest daughter has been talking about Harry Potter movie, now I know what she is talking about.
