Well - today the weather is absolutely beautiful - sun shining, gentle breeze: talk about what a difference a day makes! Yesterday we woke up to black skies and a power cut. The storm on Friday night was terrible - I fully expected to wake up to a flattened world. The only problem (besides no power) was the fact that Chris's scaffold tower had blown into the next field. He called to ask Jonathan and George to help get it back - and they did, but as usual when those three get together, in solving one problem they created another. They managed to pull down Chris's telephone wire so now they won't have a phone or the internet for a few days. I don't think Dawn will let Chris play with Jonathan and George for a while.
Our only casualty with all the storms has been our horse shelter - made of sleepers and iron. This is how it looked before (on a very snowy day with Falcon in front)
and this is how it looks after the wind picked it up and dumped it on the other side of the fence. George saw it happen - he said it made a terrific noise:
Lucky no animals were near it.
On a brighter note, we have lots of bookings for our spring workshops - some are already full - so we are looking forward to them.
And whilst I was looking for a picture of the shelter, I found these
Pictures of the lovely quilt Anthea made for her grandson!
I also found these:
He's HUGE - but was very good in puppy class this morning!
