Sunny! OMG Sunny! Yay!

This morning I looked in the mirror and realised that I've caught a bit of sun over the last couple of weeks. *cue gasps of horror* I know, I know, Evil Day Star, etc etc. But really, I think I look a lot better with a bit of tan on my face. I'm not talking leathery Clint Eastwood Styles, but my natural colouring could be described as sallow, so a bit of light tan is an improvement. I look a lot healthier.

However, now would be a good time to remind people to stock up on the sunscreen in preparation for summer, and to actually remember to wear it. Feel free to throw this one back at me at any time because I'm guilty of forgetting. *loops back to the bit where I don't want to look like Clint Eastwood*

One of the twin calves died in the storm on Saturday night. I found him yesterday and it was a shame, because he'd done well up until then. His sister is doing just fine though, and only one loss in the month I've been looking after them is pretty good going. It's also nice to be dealing with a farm that has actual real fences and paddocks the right size - stock rotation is much easier with these things. Plus, walking around in the sunshine with my dog = Yay!

See, I wasn't locked in my room all weekend. Just most of it.
