We have finally had some much needed rain as everything was pretty dry - it wasn't until about five o'clock today though. It did mean that there was sunshine this morning to help John and Dan with the lambs again, this time just spraying. It was lovely up on the hill opposite the cottage, fine views of the mountains and valley. John was telling me a little more about when his grandfather built the cottage, and he had to go the Scotland to dig potatos, and the Darlington to work on the railway to pay for the slates for the roof! Caroline cooked us a delicious dinner as well....

The chickens have been keeping us amused, I had my sandals on and they were pecking my toes - thought they were food! We also had our first egg from them yesterday.
