Oh Good morning everyone. I bounced out of bed with a real spring in my step this morning as I feel full of new energy after my yoga lesson yesterday. It was so wonderful, I did love it but Oh dear, I have just realised, when I tried to walk into my kitchen, that lots of my muscles are aching in places that I did not know I had, even my ears are aching! I stretched myself so much in so many ways and now to make myself feel better I think I will just rest today. I forgot to tell you that as Marise Mouse is so small, it was difficult for me to see the yoga positions she was showing me so I brought my kitchen chair into the garden and lifted her onto it, it made a nice comfy platform for her and I could see her very well. Marise taught me to stand like a mountain so here I am standing nice and straight for you all to see. Love from Sherbetx

I have just remembered a lovely saying that Pearl sent to me, it was written on a postcard. It reminds me of my vegetable garden . It goes something like this:
Sow seeds in the garden of your brother and you will see them bloom in yours.
Pearl told me that it means that if we do good deeds to another we will see good things come back to us. Oh how lovely, how wonderful. The whole world would be so happy if everyone sowed seeds in everyone else's gardens. It would be a world full of big rainbow coloured circles of happiness going round and round and round and round for ever and ever. Oh my goodness that makes me feel dizzy. Love and good deeds indeed. from Sherbetx

After a few minutes the rainbow faded away and the earth had begun to dry a little. I decided it would be nice to try and plant some new vegetable seeds so I gathered up my basket of seeds and garden tools and sat patiently on my flowerpot waiting for the earth to become a little less sticky. I just always have to be careful because if it is too muddy I may get mud on my white woolly coat and that is just what I do not want to do as my shampoo never seems bubbly enough to get all of the mud out. I will talk to you all again soon, I am just going to have a little nap here on my flowerpot and wait for the sun to dry the earth a little more. I am feeling really tired, my eyes are closing, it must be that my long trip home from Kathy Cat's house has worn me out!

I myself am very happy after my evening last night with Pearl, Mango and Doodle. We all sat around my kitchen table and enjoyed sharing the most delicious rhubarb pie that Pearl has ever made. I have been patiently waiting for the rhubarb in my garden to ripen for a very long time now and it was all worthwhile, as here I am now sitting on a rock in my garden with my tummy still full up with scrumptiousness. I am just resting today and enjoying the peace around me so I will say goodbye to everyone for now and I am sending big woolly Sherbet Sheep hugs to all of my friends that are nearby and far far away .

Yippee, I had the most delightful surprise this morning . When I walked into my vegetable garden to check on my naughty slugs, there in front of my eyes were huge stalks of ripe rhubarb, all ready for me to pick. My rhubarb pie dream is coming true ! I rushed back into Clover Cottage, had my breakfast, put on my gardening gloves and boots and then, Oh what a joy – I gathered the most beautiful bunch of rhubarb stalks I had ever seen. I piled them into my bicycle basket and rode along Wiggleway Lane to reach Pearl’s house. I was very careful not to bump my rhubarb too much as I did not want to bruise it. When Pearl saw my smiling face and my armfuls of rhubarb she guessed what I was so excited about as she knows how much I love Rhubarb pie. Pearl promised to make the pie in her most special way and we planned to invite Doodle and Mango to a special dinner tonight at Clover cottage to share Pearl's scrumptious pie.
Dreams do come true! It’s true!

I must say I am feeling very tired as I have been working very hard. There always seems to be so much to do in my garden and in Clover Cottage too. Thank goodness I have my lovely garden to rest in. It is so peaceful and I really love just sitting here listening to the birds tweeting in the trees. From this little tranquil spot in my garden, the wind seems to be blowing in the right direction as I can hear the new lambs baaaaaing in the fields of Greengate Farm at the other end of Wiggleway Lane. How lovely! I can imagine them leaping up and down in the air in their new happy, adventurous lives. What a delight to be a new lamb living on this planet. Abundant fresh, green grass to bounce around on, the warm sun shining down on them, lots of wool to stay cosy in, wonderful sheep friends from nearby and far far away and many, many rainbow coloured days ahead of them to discover wondrous things in. How exciting for them. What could be better. Tomorrow, I will walk along Wiggleway Lane to Greengate Farm and introduce myself to all the new lambs.

I am just going to sit on my grass and meditate today. I am feeling very calm and contented and I know that everything always turns out right for me, so I never have to worry about anything at all. I am truly blessed and truly grateful. I wish the same lovely, calm, contented feelings for every one of you and I know that everything that happens to you will be as it is meant to be and everything will always be alright in the end even if sometimes your days do not feel full of rainbow colours.
A big warm, woolly sheep hug to you all. Love from Sherbetx

Oh dear, poor Mango. I wrapped a bandage around his wrist and told him to rest in his watering can. Mango asked me to go and fetch Marise mouse, his friend from the house that leads off of Wiggleway Lane, so I ran there and Marise very kindly said she would come and take care of Mango until he was better. So, there they are now, both of them keeping each other company in Mango's red watering can. I do hope Mango gets better soon. He is blessed to have Marise mouse as his kind, caring friend. I know she will cook him very healthy food to make him get well very soon indeed.

She unwrapped the cloth that held the treat, and put a very delectable looking chocolate and coconut cake on my kitchen table. Oh what a delightful sight it was, it is a long time since I have had the great pleasure of eating some of Pearl's home made cake.
As I had already had my breakfast, I told her that after we had finished our work, we would also invite Doodle and Mango to come and share the cake with us. It always feels special to share yummy things with my best friends.
Pearl and I spent a lovey morning in my garden. Pearl especially loves the flowers, she is really so happy when she can spend time weeding around my rainbow coloured blossoms. Oh, what a lovely delightful word! BLOSSOMS, BLOSSOMS, BLOSSOMS !!
She also loves, like me, to be close to all the little creatures that she finds living in the flowers.
Well, that is my little story for today, I cannot wait to eat some cake . Love from Sherbetx

I certainly enjoyed my walk along Wiggleway Lane, taking notice of all the new fresh green leaves that are springing up in the trees and the bushes. Oh and how lovely it was to stop and look closely at the abundance of wild flowers in the hedgerows. It is such a delight to have the time to be close to nature. I picked up a tiny green grasshopper and he stayed on my shoulder all the way to Doodle's art studio. It was fun to have my new little friend with me as I do love all the little creatures.
When we reached Doodle, we found him as usual being very creative. He was painting one of his big pots in all the colours of the rainbow and I noticed he had signs to remind himself to feed his tadpoles and to collect some stones. Now, when I saw Doodle hard at work making beautiful things it reminded me very much of my 2 dear friends who have moved away from a house not far from the house of Marise Mouse, they are called Ada and Eli and I am thinking of them now as I know they are both very good at being creative and they paint lovely pictures.
I am very sure that even though they now live far far away they would love to come and feed tadpoles with Doodle and help him paint his pots. Oh how lovely it is to be around Doodle today and to see all the interesting things in his life. I am very blessed to have such a creative friend like Doodle. Love from Sherbetx

I was still half asleep though when I suddenly remembered that I had asked Doodle, Pearl and Mango to come to help me with my garden tasks today. I had asked them to have breakfast with me this morning too and I knew they could be here any minute, so I jumped up quickly and rushed into my kitchen to start putting out things on my kitchen table. Just as I was reaching into my cupboard for my jar of Pearl's homemade blackberry jam, there was a knock on the door and in came my dear friends. Yummy! I smelled the delightful aroma of freshly baked bread as they walked in. Pearl was carrying in her basket a delicious wholemeal loaf that she had made to my very favourite recipe. It had sunflower seeds and sesame seeds in it. Oh how absolutely scrumptious, I just could not wait to eat it.
Doodle had brought some crunchy red and green apples that he had been given by the farmer at the other end of Wiggleway Lane and Mango brought me a little bunch of daisies to brighten up the kitchen table. How kind they all are. I put a spotted jug of freshly squeezed orange juice on the table and a pot of tea for Pearl, made with mint from my herb garden. After eating our absolutely delicious breakfast, we were ready to start work in the garden. Doodle, Mango and Pearl all jumped into my red wheelbarrow, I gave them their tools and I pushed them all to my vegetable garden where we spent a very happy morning weeding, planting new seeds, raking earth, collecting fallen leaves and gathering a whole basket of ripe vegetables. I do so love the simple pleasure of working in my garden and it makes it all so much more special to share it with my friends. I am very blessed to have such wonderful helpers, and this evening, to say thank you to them, I will cook them a lovely healthy meal full of my home grown rainbow coloured vegetables.
