happy

Things domestic, and things feral.

After Saturday night's glamorous (*cough* well to me they were) activities, yesterday involved being brought back down to earth with a thump by dagging and delousing sheep. These are the same sheep that were involved in the Mystery Plague last month. The mystery that still hasn't been completely solved. It was poisoning of some kind, and I'm going to have to be happy with that as an answer.

Anyway, I'm pleased to report that there has only been one more loss since last time I saw them, and the owner now has half the hoggets she had but the ones that are left are looking better than they were. The bloom has returned to their coats and they're putting on weight, finally. It's gratifying, after all that death, to see the kind of health that you're supposed to see in teenage sheep.

I love that my life is full of such extreme contrasts. Keeps me honest.

We also looked at a flat for xhile, which was nice and sunny and Very Very Yellow. And it has hobbit cupboards! *squee* I am a big fan of the idea of him getting his own sunny flat. Because neither of us wants to move straight into one of those couply living together situations (yes yes, I see the irony that right now we are sharing one room, but that is temporary), and also because my house is anything but sunny, and I can picture the lounge/beanbag/book/sunshine scenario being in our future, and it's a nice picture.

I did shopping! And bought actual food! And cooked it! And nobody's come down with paralysing stomach cramps yet! *whispers* I scare myself sometimes.

And this week, I get to spend three days in meetings with the moderation team. Don't you wish you were me?

Can I just say WTF? These people get paid for this? Argh!
