• Making progress

    Well it's been two weeks since my last post - busy busy busy! But we are making progress! The electrician and the plumber are steaming ahead, the partition walls have been erected, the battery store and feed room is almost finished in the barn, the bricklayer has commenced and the roof is finished! The concrete screed has been laid in the house and barn. The bathrooms are ordered and the tiles chosen and I've chosen fabric for the kitchen and family room and lights. It's manic, but I'm loving it! And loving looking after the animals, whatever the weather. It's just so rewarding. Am a bit concerned about Eclipse, our mummy who gave birth to Alice in September. She is very thin and I've been feeding her on her own since she had her but she seems to be getting thinner! We weighed her 3 weeks ago and she was 61kg and then wormed her, then weighed her again yesterday and she was 58kg. Not entirely convinced the scales were right but she does look really thin. So I have upped her food rations again - she is having camelibra and fibregest as well as Alpha beet which is full of sugar and has free access to hay. The vet is booked to come next week to scan some of the other girls to see if they are pregnant and I'll ask him to look at Eclipse too. I also took a poo sample today which will be tested tomorrow just in case she has worms and the wormer three weeks ago hasn't cleared them. It's very glamourous this job!

    We've had continued help from my wonderful dad who has done so much! And our friend, Nic, has been helping out this week too. It's so lovely to have help and also lovely that people we know and love are putting their mark on our new home.

    Have had a couple of interactions with our neighbour that have gone well so that has been nice. Just want to get along with everyone.

    Will update again when I can....
