February Diary

Dear Guests

January has whizzed by quickly - the weather has been absolutely dreadful. First we had a load of rain and now it's snow and ice - I just wish we could have a nice cold and dry sunny spell. My dad fell on the ice and broke is wrist so we have had a few hospital visits and the sheep have really suffered because of the weather. Looking on the bright side :-), I am hoping the worst is over and it means we will get a super Easter for all the campers who have booked.

My diet is going quite well, I was lucky to be taken out recently and I was able to get into my symetrical gold, brown and turquoise mini dress and knee high boots (no it isn't a joke - I really did wear this). My sister bought me the dress for Christmas so I thought if you can't beat them join them and it give me an incentive to loose a few pounds - I'll try and keep going - I could in in a bikini by Summer (ha ha only joking)!! Anyway, the dress raised a few eyebrows.

We have had quite a mountain bikers and walkers visiting the tea room during January. Dogs are also welcome in the tea room as long as they are kept on a lead.

The cows are going to start calving this month so we will have some new additions to the farm. I was really disappointed to find that the legbar hen, which we bought in December and was supposed to lay blue eggs, only lays brown ones.

Anyway, I think I will go and have a well earned coffee now in my new Emma Bridgewater Alice mug.

Hope to see you soon.
