Oh how exciting ! It is nearly the year 2013. That sounds to me like sometime in the distant future, like a science fiction film. I wonder where all of these years go to when they have passed into the past. I imagine that they go to a special room in the sky that stores our memories for us.
As you know I live a very quiet life here at Clover Cottage and I have planned to have a nice cosy new years eve dinner with Doodle, Pearl and Mango. We are then going to lay on our backs on the grass in my garden and look up at the stars and wait until midnight to see the fireworks that will be springing up from the village behind the hill at the other end of Wiggleway Lane.

My garden looks lovely and green. The rain has freshened everything up and the grass has a delicious, wet grassy smell. It smells almost good enough to eat, like fresh green peas.
That reminds me, I think I will go and make a delcious pea soup.

Oh dear that means that the naughty slugs will come out of their hiding places and try to eat my spinach plants.
I do love it when it rains though, as it means I can sit peacefully in my cosy cottage and read my wise words books. An added bonus is that I do not have to worry about watering my plants.
It makes me happy too, to see my frogs leaping about in joy but I worry about the poor birds I wonder where they go.
They must get very wet indeed and I am sure their nests cannot be very comfortable when they are all damp and cold.
If I could I would invite them all into my cottage until the rain passes but as you know it is not easy to make birds stay still long enough to ask them.
Maybe I will see a rainbow

I am so grateful to have had a lovely Christmas day with my dear friends Doodle, Mango and Pearl. We shared a truly scrumptious dinner together and we counted our blessings all throughout the day. How fortunate we are to have so many blessings to count.
We made sure that we had some quiet time to send love and light to all the humans and to all the creatures big and small who are not as fortunate as we are and do not have many blessings to count. Love from Sherbetx

Pearl has invited me , Doodle and Mango to her house for a delicious Christmas dinner. She has made a very beautiful Christmas tree just for us. How kind she is. I must tell you also that Pearl is making the most scrumptious gingerbread house cakes. She has not quite finished them so she will not yet let me show you a picture but I will show you tomorrow, that is if I don't eat them all up first. Love from Sherbetx

I have been so busy here at Clover cottage and I live such a quiet life here with my garden and my little creatures that I did not realise what day it was.
I truly wish my friends from nearby and far far away the most wonderful rainbow coloured day tomorrow, the 25th December. I know that some of my friends live in such far away places that they may not celebrate that day as we do here in Wiggleway Lane but I still wish them a day filled with love, happiness, peace and rainbows.
Love from your friend Sherbet x

I waited and I waited and |I waited. I sat on my flowerpot and waited but guess what happened ? NOTHING !!
I am still here and so are you otherwise you wouldn't be able to read this.
I also heard something much, much nicer. I heard that there is going to be more love in the world and more rainbow coloured days and more big smiley faces, so that is really good news indeed.

What a beautiful day it is. A light breeze is swirling around my ears and the seagulls are crying all around me. Oh how I love seagulls! How wonderful to be able to fly and glide through the sky in complete freedom as they do. How beautiful they are, they remind me of one of my favourite stories all about a seagull called Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Jonathan Seagull has a message for the whole world. Here it is .
" You have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way "
Love from a very free and peaceful Sherbet sheep, here and now with no-one standing in my way x

I have been to Cafe Blah Blahh again and I have eaten 2 huge, delicious cup cakes.
I must say I am having a very relaxing time here at the seaside. The weather has been just perfect . Not too hot, not too cold, not too rainy and not too windy. I had hoped to see the Queen again but today she was not there.
I heard she is expecting to have a new grandchild so I think she must be busy knitting little socks or maybe even a nice, comforting blanket made out of the softest, cuddliest wool.
I do hope she finds time to come to the cafe tomorrow I would love to share another pot of tea with her .
Now I hope you will forgive me but I am very tired after my long day and my eyes keep dropping asleep without me asking them to, so I will say goodbye for now and I will see you again soon. Lots of pure rainbow coloured love from Sherbetx

It is 2 years since my dear friend Reginald Rabbit went to live in a very special, peaceful place far far away.
I do miss him very very much indeed but I know he is really happy to be where he is and for that I am very glad . So I am happy for him but sad at the same time. I know I was extremely blessed to have had him in my life for such a long time and I want to send him a special angel to watch over him in his new home and tell him how very grateful I am for every single thing he did for me.
Dear Reginald rabbit, I can feel your love and I know you can feel mine.
I am so happy that you are free and in peace. All my love from your very dear friend Sherbet sheepxxx

I do hope I see her again at this very same cafe .
I offered to take her corgis for a walk on the beach with me tomorrow but she told me that they can be very naughty indeed and may try to run off so I think it is best that I do not take them; or the headlines in the newspapers the next day would say -
SHERBET SHEEP LOSES THE QUEEN'S CORGIS!
- and that would make me feel very silly and very sorry indeed.
I would be famous all over the world for being the one who lost the Queen of England's corgis! Oh dear I must not let that happen!
I want to give special thanks to the very famous Cafe Blah Blahh for allowing the Queen's corgis to come into the cafe and for the delicious pot of royal tea and also the very warm welcome they gave me. I will be back to visit them very, very soon to enjoy one of their very scrumptious cup cakes. Love from a very contented Sherbet sheepx
Monday, 10 December 2012
As you can see I am wearing my very best patriotic clothes as I hope to meet the Queen of England later .
In fact, I may even see her today walking her corgis along this very beach which is not very far from her country house.
WATCH OUT SHERBET DO NOT BURN YOUR PINK BITS !
But I promise you I was very careful indeed and soon went to shelter on the steps of a delightful blue beach hut.
You may have noticed that I have some fresh dry clothes on as I must admit I got a little bit wet paddling in the sea. I was trying to find Clive crab who lives nearby. I am afraid he must have been out as there was no sign of him today.
Love from your very sandy but happy friend Sherbetx

She put me on this earth, gave me Clover Cottage to live in and helped me make my amazing garden. I am very grateful for her love and I wish her a wonderful birthday full of smiles and healthy, rainbow coloured birthday food.
Now, I know you may not have seen me here for a while and may have missed my stories but I decided when I reached the seaside and Sheila sheep's lovely home that I would relax and rest and give myself a lovely peaceful time I have used my time to be quiet, to meditate and to read my books. Now I am nearly ready to have seaside adventures with Sheila sheep. I am looking forward to going to her favourite cafe which is called Cafe Blah Blahh and I really hope to meet the Queen of England there. I am saying this because one of her country homes is nearby and I know that she loves to have her cup of tea in that very special cafe, especially as they do allow her corgis to go in with her.
I will share my adventures with you very, very soon. Love and rainbow coloured blessings to you all. Sherbetx

I am afraid I am not very good company for her yet though because I am very, very tired after my long journey so I am not quite ready to enjoy lovely long walks along the beach. I am going to rest and sleep for a long time until I have my strength back then when I wake up I will have a spring in my step again and I will start to enjoy my little holiday by the sea and the very delightful company of my dear friend Sheila sheep. I will see you all again when I wake up !
Love from a very sleepy Sherbet sheep x

I will talk to you again when I am settled into Sheila sheep's house and when I have unpacked my suitcase.

I must tell you that 2 of my very special friends, who have moved far far away came back to visit me. Their names are Eli and Ada and they are very good indeed and almost never naughty. They are very clever and artistic and create so many beautiful things. They came here all the way from far far away to enjoy a very special Thanksgiving day and were staying just at the other end of Wiggleway Lane, around a corner and along a very bumpy road indeed! Today they are travelling back to their new home on a big aeroplane. I will miss them very much indeed until I see them again.
So, that is all for now. I have some very exciting stories to tell you very soon but for now I will have a little rest and talk to you again tomorrow.
By the way I am not sure if I showed you the drawing book I bought myself in Paris so here it is. Oh please do forgive me if you have already seen it but I am very proud of it and I plan to do my very best drawings in it !
Love from Sherbetx

It is a day when we count our blessings and give thanks for them.
I am counting each one of my blessings here at Clover Cottage and I am very, very grateful to be such a very fortunate and blessed Sherbet sheep.
I have invited Pearl, Mango and Doodle to share a delicious dinner with me this evening. I have picked one of my best and biggest pumpkins from my vegetable garden and Pearl has promised to make us all a scrumptious pumpkin pie.
Oh, I am so looking forward to sharing a happy evening full of gratitude with my very best friends.
Love from a very thankful Sherbet sheep x

You see, I have not been feeling in my best health. The cough I had in Paris has not gone completely away and I have been staying at Pearl's house where she has been looking after me with delicious home made soup and hot tea and lovely soothing drinks made with lemon and honey to make my cough go away.
I am feeling a little bit better and I also have something wonderful to look forward to.
When I am perfectly well I am going to visit Sheila sheep at the seaside and she is going to take me to a very famous cafe called Cafe Blah Blah.
It is not too far from where the Queen of England has one of her country houses and I hope that the day I go the Queen will be in there having a nice cup of tea. What a lovely surprise that would be for me and what fun!
That's all for now. Here is picture of me keeping very warm sitting on the radiator in Manu mouse's house in Paris.

I am a little bit tired and have a little bit of a cough but I am content to be back looking after my garden and the little creatures that live there
My last morning in Paris was very pleasant indeed. I did feel well enough to go and visit my dear friend Marie mouse in her brand new design studio. I loved riding on the metro and needed to change trains only once. Luckily I could just about reach the ticket machine ! Then from the metro station I had a walk of about 5 minutes and there she was! I found her in a quiet, narrow street ! Her name was written on the door and I could see her inside . How exciting it was and how wonderful to see her again and to see the lovely place where she works all day long. I could not resist having my picture taken in there with all the lovely brushes and rainbow coloured paints. I cannot wait to go and visit her again!

I must tell you that Mango's Aunty Manu and I had the most wonderful dinner with these mushrooms. It was truly scrumptious. I wish I could find these in the woods near Wiggleway Lane but I do not think they grow there. It is just as well because I know that to gather mushrooms from the forests I would have to be very, very careful as there could be some very dangerous mushrooms indeed. I have a book at Clover Cottage that teaches me about collecting wild mushrooms but I would still be afraid to do it without the help of a mushroom expert !
I am feeling a little bit better today. I am resting and keeping warm and I will go to bed early tonight . Tomorrow afternoon I am going back to Clover Cottage on the big train from Paris. I will be very sad to leave, I have had a wonderful time but I have to get back to look after my garden and all the little creatures that live there.
I am so happy for him . I am still in Paris so I am sending him this lovely bottle of French champagne to help him celebrate.
So - To President Obama from Sherbet Sheep of Clover Cottage in Wiggleway Lane CONGRATULATIONS
Here I am again , the very famous French Sherbet sheep in Paris. My very favourite city.
I have been walking around today looking at all the delicious food that is absolutely everywhere.
So many things are reminding me of my lovely country life back at Clover Cottage . Even though we are in a city I am still surrounded by rainbow coloured, freshly gathered vegetables and the most scrumptious, crusty, tasty bread .
I must tell you though that I was right about my sore throat. I now have a nasty cold and a very runny nose indeed! I am going to stay in the warm today and try and get well.
Meanwhile I must tell you that Aunty Manu mouse has bought a truly delicious mixture of wild mushrooms and scrummy bunches of herbs . We will cook them this evening for our dinner.
Oh well that is all for now. I must rest as I am feeling a little bit unwell. Love from Sherbetx

I must tell you that I had a lot of fun going out to a bistro in a lovely little Parisian street.
I am sure they are not used to seeing a sheep like me sitting on the table. The chairs were a little bit too big for me, not like Clover Cottage at all!
I had a truly delightful time reading the menu all in French . I must say that I did remember the French I learned at sheep school very well indeed.
I am not used to going out in the dark.
but here I am. You can see a picture of me below on my walk back from the bistro
Where I live in Wiggleway Lane I only go out in daylight so it was fun for me to see the bright lights in Paris
I have lots of photos to show you of my adventures so I will put some here today and put some more tomorrow.
The only problem I had was that it has been raining a lot here in Paris and I did want to sit on the grass in front of the Eiffel Tower and have my photo taken.
The grass is wet and I don't think it is good for me to sit on it. I must say that I am a little bit worried as I have a little bit of a sore throat and I think it means that I may get a cold . Oh dear!
On my home from the bistro, very near to Aunty Manu's house I saw a sign that reminded me of the new French Sherbet sheep that I have become in Paris.
You see, as I said a minute ago I do not go out at night usually, and now I have been very brave and gone out in the dark! The little sign below is showing this new brave Sherbet sheep!
I am very proud of myself .
I know you may think I look a little bit drunk after my evening out in Paris, because my clothes are all crooked, but you know me very well by now and you know I never drink anything except mint tea, water, hot chocolate, freshly squeezed juices and home made lemonade.
I think I must ask Kathy cat to make me a raincoat because I really do not like my wool to get wet in the rain or maybe I can find an umbrella that is small enough for me.
It means WIPE YOUR FEET PLEASE !! So I did!
Love from a very tired and happy Sherbet sheepx

I woke up early and when I looked out of the window I saw that it was a little bit rainy here in Paris. Mango's Aunt Manu was still sleeping so I crept out trying not to squeak the floorboards too much. I took myself on a lovely walk around the corner to a very special boulangerie where I found 2 beautiful crunchy crusted baguettes.
The rain had stopped and I managed to get them home free of raindrops and soggy bits.
Aunt Manu had made us a lovely hot pot of tea and had put out 2 kinds of scrumptious home made jam
( confiture). One was made of some special red peaches called vinyard peaches that grow on a tree in Manu's mother's garden, and the other one was made of juicy French apricots. I could not decide which was the best so I was a little bit greedy and spread both of them on my bread. Yummy yum, I enjoyed my breakfast so much, what a treat it was for me .
I must rush off now as we are going to eat in a very cosy Parisian bistro. I will talk to you all again tomorrow. Love and hugs from a very French Sherbet sheepx

It is so delightfully rainbow coloured and it reminds me of my vegetable garden at Clover Cottage except that I could not hope to grow all of the magnificent things I see here. Every grocery and food shop window and market stall is truly a visual feast and my mouth is watering on every corner.
I am going to put lots of my photos on my stories pages while I am here so that you can share my experience with me. I wish you could all be walking around these lovely streets with me. It is a little bit cold but I have my woolly coat to keep me warm. As you can see I am wearing a new French beret made for me by the very talented Kathy cat. She is truly very clever indeed .
it ! I think you can see from my picture how very smelly it is, you may even be able to smell
it ! I found myself missing Clover Cottage a little bit when I saw a big bunch of carrots that looked a lot like the ones I grow in my garden, How beautiful they were, with lush green leaves and the best orange colour, just like carrots should be.
Oh what joy. I saw so many scrumptious looking herbs too, just waiting to be put into a deliciously healthy dinner. Oh yummy, I am very excited to see all of this scrummyness. I wish I could grow such big, huge bunches of herbs like the ones I see here. You must forgive me for being so madly happy at the sight of all of this absolutely delectable rainbow coloured perfection but as you know healthy food is one of my great passions and it is all displayed so beautifully everywhere I look, a real wonder to behold, as you will see in more of my photos tomorrow .
Tomorrow I will walk and walk and walk again. I might have a lovely ride on the metro too I know that I am only a little Sherbet sheep but I am a very adventurous sheep and I like to fill my days up with happy things. I wonder what fun things I will see tomorrow. I will wake up very early and I will go to the shop around the corner and buy a delicious, crunchy crusted baguette for breakfast.
I must say that I ended my perfect day with a last look at the famous, magnificent Eiffel Tower.
I am very grateful to have had such a lovely day today. I am very blessed and cannot wait until tomorrow. I wonder what surprises will be in store for me as I wander around the streets again. There is so much to see and to love here.
When I went back to Mango's Aunty Manu mouse's house, I tiptoed along on her squeaky floorboards ( they still squeaked loudly) and flopped down in absolute tiredness. Oh what happy dreams I will have tonight. Goodnight everyone. See you tomorrow.
Saturday, 3 November 2012
( Manu mouse) was waiting to meet me. I gave her a great big hug and she took me to her very cosy, warm house. I must say that her house is very old and has the squeakiest floorboards I have ever walked on in my life! I am so happy to be here though it is truly a wonderful rainbow coloured adventure. I will be staying here for nearly one week. and you know me, I will eat lots and lots of healthy, scrummy food. Of course !. Salut ! Love from Sherbetx
