So new!

So new!

21 April – What a weekend – drama, tragedy, and now a Sunday evening spent with cute little animals with wonky legs and wobbly tails who hadn’t quite worked out how to feed from their mum. Liz rang me around 6 to say that a set of twins had been born three hours before and triplets that morning, and then dropped by in the car to give me a lift out to the field so that I could see them and take photos. I don’t think she or Adam banked on me taking quite so many photos! The lambs were so new were still learning where to suck to get milk, which included trying out Adam’s bare leg and Liz’s shoes before Liz persuaded them they might get more from suckling Mum. It was a beautiful evening and we walked up the end of the field to count the sheep and then back again, as the sunset gathered and the lambs curled up by their new mothers.

Marks: 10/10 – really should have put the camera down and just revelled in the experience itself. Thanks to Liz and Adam who passed no comment at all on my embarrassing behaviour.

I turned 50 in June and have decided to write about some of the new experiences that happen to me over the next 12 months, not in a show-off way, but to remind myself (and any others that access this) that new experiences happen in all shapes and sizes. I suppose I'm looking at ways to remind myself of the positives. I'm also hoping this will spark off taking steps in a few different directions - what, I don't yet know.
