Do you know that feeling of having to sit on a secret that you really want to share? And it gets more and more aggravating, kicking up into turbo mode as the time to reveal it actually starts nearing?

Ugh. Excuse me. I'll just be over in the corner, counting days.

@Alex Hormann, are you ok regarding flooding? It seems Wales was hit hard by the storm this weekend.
My street isn't flat and I'm away from rivers or canals, so my area was ok.

A few trees down, couple of roofing sheets broken and the fields are nothing but mud, but we're high enough up that we don't need to worry about flooding. We've started lambing now though, so hopefully the weather will dry up a bit.

Good!
One day I will go visit and see all the lambs you mention :D
Around me there are mostly cows, but also a few lambs - I remember once on a walk I saw cows, sheep, horses, dogs, squirrels and rabbits ;D

Oh wow, Alex, do you shorn (if that's the term at all) the lambs yourself? That seemed really nice and hand on, I'd say.

Shearing is the only thing we don't do ourselves (that and slaughtering). There aren't enough of us on the farm and the equipment is too expensive to justify for something you only do once a year. We do everything else though, and it's very much hands on.

1000th post and it's been a pleasure. One of the best forums and best posters I've ever interacted with online! It's been brilliant.

I somehow never realized I signed up in 2015. Always thought it's been a year or two.
