|Yes, that white blur is sheep!|
Last night as I was sitting at my computer doing something or other (probably the other, I don't often do the something), I heard a drumming noise. Next thing I knew, a flock of sheep came running past and scooted into the field next door. I then heard a whistle and saw a farmer and his wife and their dog. The dog rounded up the sheep and shepherded them into the side road and probably into some field round there.
|In my back yard|
Fast forward a few hours and I am getting ready for bed. I stand in the bathroom brushing my teeth, when I see some sheep and hear the drumming noise again! Sheep? At 11.30pm? Well, those sheep liked my garden apparently and made their way into it, eating grass, dropping droppings and then getting spooked and running out the other end. But since there were so many sheep this time, the house was surrounded! Oswin was transfixed: all these big white things that moved!! This country living might actually be something!
|In or out?|
Anyway, when I drove to work this morning, I saw the sheep. Only about 150 meters from my home, by the side of the road, the whole bunch was standing and lying and whatevering.
I love living in the country!
