Welcome to life on a farm in the Yorkshire Dales.
Our village church
Tuesday, 6 June 2017
Last week the weather was lovely, the sun shone and it was warm. This week it is very wet, very windy and cold. The vagiaries of our English weather.
I put my coat on after tea in order to take Tess round the hay field for a walk, stepped out of the back door and the gale almost blew me over. If I fall onto the floor I find it more or less impossible to get up so I dare not go on.
I rang my son and he has just driven the mile round to the farm and taken her for her evening walk - not a brilliantly long one (he is not a dog lover at all) but at least a utility walk and the rabbits have had a bit of peace as she had to stay on the lead with him and was therefore unable to chase them.
Each morning for the past week when I have drawn back the curtains, there has been a baby rabbit on the lawn. Tess would dearly love to catch it. I dread it happening because were she to injure it I would be totally unable to kill it.
I am going now to watch Yorkshire Vet on television - one of my favourite programmes. I would guess that Thelma (North Stoke) watches it too - it is filmed in her area.
