How is it March already? Feels like five minutes since Christmas.

My feet haven’t touched the ground yet. Lots is going on here at the moment. Spring is in the air after a few horrendous weeks of rain and more rain. Great weather for ducks though as the saying goes.

The goats are doing really well. They’ve only been outside briefly this year as they don’t like the rain and their enclosure is a muddy mess. Eunice is blooming and getting larger by the day – her little one (or ones) being due around Easter time. As goat owning novices the thought of kids is extremely exciting, yet scary so we are doing all we can to make sure we are prepared.

The hens and ducks are doing well too – laying loads at the moment, so keeping us with a constant supply of fresh eggs. Sadly we lost a couple of ducks over the weekend. Looked like a fox attacked them, poor things. But mother nature is cruel at times and that is something which we’ve had to accept over the last couple of years.

Soap making is keeping us busy too with lots of orders coming in. We have some exciting projects and ideas coming up in the near future and we are going to be starting goat experiences again after Easter. So keep an eye out for those.

I was asked to go on the Gathering on BBC Radio Cumbria in February – it was a a great experience and I enjoyed talking about my life and business in Cumbria. It can be downloaded at until mid March for anyone who wants a listen. Enjoy šŸ™‚

Bye for now x
