“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Mum!! Come And See!!! QUICK!!!!!

I rushed outside on this blue-skied morning and peered over the fence into the back paddock to see a ewe licking a very-still-white-object on the ground in front of her. Two minutes earlier, the lads had noticed a wobbly-legged lamb standing next to its mother, and as they watched, its twin was born!!!
Ten minutes later, umbilical cords still attached, the newborns were both standing, being gently nudged by their mother towards her milk.
We keep zipping outside every few minutes to check on progress, and to see if any of the other heavily pregnant sheep are having their babies.
Spring has arrived early to The Sunny Bay!!!!!!!!!

I was just in the shops and all the *SPRING* collection has arrived - not only are the colours wonderful, bright and fun - but that must mean that winter is on it's way OUT!! I better get my singlets and slides out!

What a great event to see.

And I'm laughing about Spring - the stores here are putting out the winter coats and mittens, and it's only 90* outside. Apparently Winter is coming soon. Sheesh!
