Not much time for blogging these days what with the weather being so nice and the kids off school and all, we’re making the most of the great outdoors.
My sister’s house is superbly located with hills and farmland right on her back doorstep. Her long garden stretches right up to the fields where cows and sheep graze and there have been several times when she’s opened her curtains in a morning to find a pair of huge brown bovine eyes staring in through the window. The cows would get in through a break in the fence. A young bullock got through one time and as much as it was a hairy experience, it was also great excitement for the kids. The farmer has recently replaced all the fencing but the undeterred cows still get as close as possible to the fence, especially when the back lawn has been cut and the freshly cut grass has been thrown into the field.
