I think Spring is finally here!

I think Spring has to be my favourite season. The flush of new blossoms on the trees, baby calves and lambs frolicking around the fields on a sunny day, the nodding heads of the spring tulips and daffoldils. It's such a welcome change after the dreary winter and especially so in the Waikato where we can be in fog for half the day sometime.

The girls have chosen the lambs for Pet Day on the 9th October.

Sarah has called her lamb Snowy but I am hoping her interest in it lasts more than her interest in her rabbit. She begged and pleaded for a rabbit for her 5th birthday in April so I weakened and gave in after promises that she would feed it every day and clean its cage etc. Well I caught her trying to pop the cat in the rabbit cage a few weeks ago as she had decided having a rabbit was too much work and that the cat could have it for dinner!! We have since had a talk on caring for animals!

Hannah's lamb is Angel and is a Suffolk hence the black face. A total opposite to her sister, I think Hannah would sleep with her lamb if I allowed it!

I have not had much time for stitching. Work has been really busy so I have been doing a few extra shifts. Worked til 4am this morning from 2.45pm the day before so am feeling a little jaded now. Only managed to grab a couple of hours sleep. Have today off then back at the coal face tomorrow. Loving being back in nursing though and doing the ICU course this year just adds another dimension to it.

I think I need to start something new to get me back into stitching mode. Just something small like a Brightneedle or a Blackbird Designs piece. That white skirt on Fairy Moon is just not doing it for me at the moment. Think I will go find a nice spot in the sun with a coffee and peruse my patterns.


  1. Hello! Great to catch up you, best of luck with getting back to stitching.

  2. Hi Deb, Lovely to see you around again.

  3. Who knew that 5 year-olds could be so devious?!

    I love going through my patterns looking for the next "big" thing. Have fun going through yours!

  4. Hey Deb,
