Valentine calf

Calving is always supposed to start on St Valentine's Day and although we've had a couple of surprises already, this morning we were pleased to see a little Valentine had been born overnight:

She's already had some milk and Mum is keeping a good eye on her. 

I also think this little calf which was born the other day is absolutely adorable - he looks like milk has been spilt on his head!

And, of course because it's Valentine's Day we had some surprises at home.  I know people think it's fake and silly and a waste of money and just making Hallmark richer - but I actually love the bit of colour and fun that Valentine's Day gifts bring to what has been a very grey, dank and cold February.  For years I have given my husband and children little gifts and cards, even though Jonathan always moaned.  Well, in recent years he's come round to my way of thinking and actually I think he even enjoys it!
