So as well as normal life, I've had a few days out and about with friends, first was a morning visit to Toft Alpaca Farm, with Sheena. Sheena had got the booking via Groupon as a gift for me and her to enjoy a day together.
We were given a guided tour around the farm, and just look at these cuties, these were about 6 months old and very friendly
as you can see from this photo, they came right up to the camera and wasn't scared.
These babies were a few months old, and were very lively, running and jumping around the group
I even feed a few along the way
Then on our return to the farm, a baby one had just been born,
After about 10 minutes of so, the other mothers, gathered round and assisted it onto its feet, albeit a little wobbly, it was just lovely to see the others taking care of it.
This one was about a week old.
Then we made our way inside to enjoy a much needed cup of tea and some homemade scones and jam.
We were even given the opportunity to do a spot of knitting using the Alpaca wool, each square was going to be sewn together to cover a model reindeer in time for Christmas.
This was my contribution
Then we had a look around the shop
Then we had a wander around the village,
before finding a lovely pub, where we sat outside and had some lunch.
It was the first time I'd been to an Alpaca farm visit, and one that I would do again. Thanks to Sheena and the lovely invitation to join her.
I'll be back a few day with more updates.
