Worried

I'm a little bit worried about lamb chop. She spends most days sitting out in the garden chewing.
Maybe she's enjoying the view? Perhaps she imagines she's found herself a nice grassy patch to sit on? She sits and waits for the odd crust of bread/mince pie to come her way. She's started limping quite badly and I don't think it's just the sympathy vote she's after. All her friends have different colour markings on them and seem to belong somewhere. Lamb chop seems to be on her own with no stamp of ownership on her rump. She started limping last week and her knee/knuckle joint looks swollen on her right leg. I keep hoping it will get better and am trying to give her healthy things to eat. Niels says we should buy some hay. I have thought about inviting her in, but I think in the end I'll have to let a farmer know and I don't think they'll treat it and I would hate to be responsible for her end. She smells of a wet woolly jumper straight out of the washing machine and she always comes trotting/limping up when she sees the car arrive. She would have been brilliant in a nativity play. I've looked in the pet selection in Tesco's but they don't do anything for sheep. She's started eating the bird seed I put out. It takes her ages but she's very persistent. I can't see it can be very filling though.
On a cheerful note we now have a bedroom! No curtains, carpets, knick knacks or other such niceities but it's a start and wonderful to have our own bed back after nearly two years!
The plumber is coming tomorrow - yes, he really is! He turns up when he says, which takes a bit of getting used to! The kitchen sink will be finished tomorrow. The shower room is finished. We have a loo! The bathroom is half finished. The dishwasher door on order. My washing machine works. Hughie is coming back tomorrow to put in the down lights. My microwave oven is being delivered tomorrow. The children arrive this evening. Then I need to put the house in order, it is a total, total mess, with loads of things still in boxes and furniture still to be built (sometimes Ikea isn't such a good idea!) There's no room to put anything and I wonder why after two years we kept so much rubbish!
Then all I've left to do is the christmas present shopping, food shopping, get a tree, and find the decorations!! No, I'm not joking!

Poor Lambchop! We've been wondering what had happened to Lambchop! The house is looking fantastic! Have a super Christmas but don't even think about mint sauce!

She's sitting outside now, waiting for me to finish! She's had last nights salad , an apple and some granary bread, but she still looks hungry! Happy Christmas!

We have just been unbelievably busy, hoping we can ease up a little this month. Still lots to do but need a break - also masses of paper work to sort out and business work to do! Happy New Year to you both
