I tried on a $1100 jacket today.

This beautiful charcoal and deep purple creation was crafted by the hands of a thousand Italians using the most soft and supple materials, ever.
So I try it on. Honest to God, it was actually made for me. If you flipped the little tag it would have said ‘Specifically made for Simonne’.
But before, I could flip the little tag, I look down the sleeve and see the price tag hanging out. And dear God it read $1100. My eyes nearly bugged out of my head and I was immediately too afraid to move. I was pretty certain if I made any sudden movements, the jacket would have spontaneously combusted.
So I carefully shrug out it, hang it up, and back away slowly, never to return to that jacket again.


I think I have target painted on the outside of my left thigh.

Because for the last week, without hesitation, a sheep has hit me there. And I can’t even pretend that I went and hunted the fat old tarts down to give them a smack behind the ear, because frankly I was too busy picking myself up from the ground.


I accidentally vaccinated myself today.

But now I can rest easy knowing I won’t be struck down by pulpy kidney during the next lambing season.


I loooove this plant! It’s so different. You stare down into it, and it’s like looking into an alien land.

It appears that rubber boots were designed to be at the right height to funnel in the pee when a ewe has a squat.


You feed the ewes too much food, they get mastitis and die. You take some food away, they get toxaemia and die.

THERE IS NO PLEASING THE SHEEP.
