I don't seem to have had much time to update the blog this week - a lot has been going on! Anyway, Happy Easter to everyone, thanks to all who gave presents to Caitlin - she has been properly spoilt. Last week Rachel took Sunday school, and as it was Palm Sunday, she asked Pauline and Les to bring their donkeys to the Rectory, and the kids got to ride on them, so there was great excitement all round. We also have two new donkeys in Les's field next to us - Pedro and Lefty, who Paudie and Nuala have brought up to feed on all the lush grass: they seem very friendly as well. I've also been giving Ian a hand up at Gortbrack Organic Farm to finish off the eco cabins ready for their first guests: they have turned out really well. We also got to take a look at a short video of what goes on at the farm which was produced for the DPS ( Discover Primary Science ) project for schools - even Q, the Kerry cow got in on the act! I was then busy helping John put up his new polytunnel, which looks great, and we've been busy planting more in ours. Off to cook breakfast now!
