This time I actually got to the client's place before it started raining. We sat and she made me a latte (how civilised!) while we waited to see if it would stop. The neighbour, whose sheep I was also supposed to be doing today, came over and we stood around being optimistic for about half an hour, but it was still raining so I came home and cleaned the oven.
I know I promised sheep pics so have a picture of Minty and Saucy:
They seemed quite happy to hang onto their wool for another week or so..
If this keeps up I suspect I'll be occupying tomorrow instead of shearing. Well gosh.
