On Saturday we did some updating of our website, which always seems to take us far longer than anticipated. I still need to get the boys linked up to Alpacaseller stud services...I will get round to it before spring I'm sure... otherwise we are current! I did put a couple of girls on the for sale list last week... but removed them after a couple of days. When we have so many stud males and plenty of land it did seem a bit silly to be reducing down our females. We also need to keep some potential sale stock in case of local interest.
Saturday afternoon saw me doing some charity work. Okay, I'm making it sound far more altruistic than is the case, but that's what Paul believed! My friend, who is running the London marathon, was raising money for her chosen charity. My main role involved consuming some cheese and wine and catching up on the gossip! I did give Poppet her second Lambivac in the morning but otherwise very little work got done.
Today was the NEBAG (North East and Border Alpaca Group) AGM to which we sent our apologies...see I did say all play and no work this weekend! We have been celebrating Robyn's birthday with a fantastic lunch at Miller Howe situated on the banks of Lake Windermere http://www.millerhowe.com/. It is an amazing arts and craft period hotel, which serves exquisive food from a contempory dining room, with beautiful lake land views. This is now our new favourite place to eat...as you may have guessed we are all real foodies!
