hello

Celebrating Halloween wasn’t so much of a big thing when I was a child, but these days it’s huge in the UK and when I say huge, I mean HUGE! As soon as summer is over and the kids are back at school you can’t move for ghost, witch and monster costumes at your local supermarket, not to mention spooky cakes and decorations for all those parties and get-togethers. It’s no surprise that kids get so excited about trick or treating – you can always see hilarious gangs of giggling ghouls wandering around the streets on that special evening (fuelled by sugared eye balls, or fizzy jelly worms). Whether it’s for a ghoulish gathering at your house, or a scary disco at school, kids and grown-ups around the world are…

We meet the flock and company owner at Doulton Border Leicester Yarns Up early or slow to rise? Depends on the day! Sheep have to be looked after every day. There’s always something to do. First job of the day? If it’s not a sheep day, I wake up, look at Instagram and Ravelry, add any new info that needs to go up there and then have the first of my many cups of tea, before packaging and posting orders off to customers. Mid-morning pick-me-up? Tea! Fave way to sit back and take five? Watching re-runs of The Bill on TV. Leisurely lunchtime? If only! Lunchtime dissolves into teatime. A quick Jacobs cream cracker and that keeps me going. Post-lunch priorities? Checking social media, website, Etsy and snail mail and responding if required to everything. Clocking-off time? Only…
