More Visitors....and Minstrel Steals the Show !!...Again !!!

Since my parents arrived on Sunday...I have been working on my surprise....its not quite ready...so unfortunately I can't reveal what it is !

I'm hoping...the finishing touches will arrive soon....so I can reveal just what it is...and although, I did have some good advice.....I don't think.....I have managed to resist....the temptation....but the wise words...of 'Less is more' have echoed....I fear I might not have managed, I fear I have 'more' than....'less and when I reveal....the big surprise....it's still not quite finished !!

Apart from that....I have had more visitors.....friends Biddy & Alistair came round with some other friends Val & Peter...to see the alpacas....I suspect...we just happened to be there also !

Is really quite marvellous, to see new people greeted by the alpacas, the girls, babies and boys were on their best behaviour.....and once again Minstrel stole the show.

She is on top form at the moment....I shall forgive her, for pretending to be pregnant....for this year...anyway !! she is just ......far too nice at the moment !!

Everyone who meets her....I'm sure will remember her for some time after.....the experience !

As usual, fleeces, knitting, spinning, jam making and just a general good old chit-chat.......I think its fare to say....a great afternoon....with some very lovely moments mixed in for good measure, Val just fell in love with the alpacas....and I think Pater was secretly smitten with Minstrel also....the babies are so lovely and innocent, coming to see us....its just great to have such close contact and it really does just put you in a good mood.....Alpaca Therapy...you just can't beat it !!

Val left with some fleece to spin, apparently I have re-inspired her to make something special out of the alpaca fleece.....I shall look forward to see, just what she creates !

Ah! The 'less is more' thing has gone slightly more than less has it.

p.s. Les and I just enjoyed some Plum Chutney, deeeeelicious....

Thanks Lady Zanzibah

Adorable photos! I especially like the play-fighting picture.

Less is over-rated. Can't wait to see the surprise.

I'd like to say that I had more or less guessed your surprise...but that would be totally untrue!

What a sociable time your are having at Zanzibah...I am sure that you are the lure Jayne but the alpacas are obviously enjoying the attention too.

Smudge (who is sat staring at the computer screen) and I are looking forward to seeing what you and your dad have been creating this time!

Have you not mated Minstrel this year? She is looking rather friendly still!
