Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

Then the batteries ran out in the camera...and we saw
mating tortoises...did you know they make a NOISE?? A loud noise, they had no shame!!
And because this is what blogs are all about I used my camera phone because who can resist mating tortoises? The following pics are a bit cruddy but at least you can see what else we did ... I LOVE my pink phone!

More shetlands, even littler ones, in the nursery.. ( and this picture kind of made me wonder how we look after these 3 little boys because it shows how close they are in age, it doesn't show just how LOUD and bouncy they are though)

And ferrets that stink but are a bit cute and friendly

And we mixed some baby formula for.....

LAMBS but even though THIS is what we had been asking to do ALL day, we didn't feed them because we were a bit scared.... so daddy did it!! ( and mummy loved him a bit more because he just did it all and he always does stuff)

We even hearded the cows back to the field because we were there ALL Day,

and when the wouldn't move we could shout and shove them and yell....which you would think would be GREAT because we do that stuff, all the time and get told NOT to shove and yell and shout ( this picture looks kind of though the bullock is being mistreated but really it wasn't, the whole thing was gentle and safe! Honest it was!)

....not at all fun when you're told to do it..so we were quiet and didn't shove or yell...til we got home.

Home, bath, dinner....snuggling and bed. Saturdays should always be like this and because we did so much and got 6 stamps for joining in, we got free tickets to go again. Is that the BEST saturday ever? I think so!!

Yeah...Seth thinks so too!

Looks like so much fun Helen! I wish it wasn't such a rainy weekend here. We have a farm nearby that is open to the public.

Zachary would be cautious to try any of those things! I think Seth was brave to pet the horse. :)

Jeffy's always this redundant, verbose, hypertrophic, repetitive. Work on these behaviors has started. You should have said no to the turtles.
Publish this work.
