I woke up bright and early and I was just enjoying a delicious breakfast of porridge with some delectable strawberries on top, when there was a knock on my kitchen door and there stood Pearl with her basket filled with freshly baked bread rolls. Oh what Scrumptious yummyness!! What a wonderful aroma to greet me first thing in the morning.
She came in, sat at my kitchen table and we shared the delicious, crusty bread. I must admit I already had a bit of a full tummy with my porridge but I just could not resist that warm bread! How blessed I am to have Pearl bringing me delicious warm bread and how blessed I am to have healthy thriving strawberry plants in my garden that give me strawberries to put on my porridge. What an absolute delight to see those little red berries peeping out from under their leaves. Isn't it wonderful how we can grow scrumptious things in our gardens. Oh what joy! Love and rainbow coloured blessings to you all. Sherbetx

Hello my dear friends from all over the world. I have been sitting here thinking about the Olympics. I have been thinking how nice it is for everyone from all the different countries on this wonderful planet called Earth, to come together and make friends with each other. How lovely for them all. I myself, have had a message from one of my dear friends from far far away. She gave me a great idea to add to my very own Olympics here at Clover Cottage. She told me that goats were really good athletes and now I am determined to ask the farmer at Greengate Farm if I can borrow some of his goats to join my Olympic games day. I do actually remember now that Pearl has also told me that goats are indeed very good at sports. They can climb up very tricky mountains and their little feet seem to hold onto the tiniest spaces and they never seem to fall down. I am sure that if I invite the goats they will win all of the events but that is OK. I do not mind, I will be happy for them as the fun is in the games and not in the winning. Love from Sherbetx

Oh, look what I have found in my vegetable garden ! How absolutely scrumptious !I am so delighted that I have found some ripe, purple aubergines ( or maybe you call them eggplant if you live in a different country to me )
I also picked 2 huge ripe, red peppers and some tomatoes, chilli peppers and garlic.
I do so love cooking, especially with my very own home grown food. I know that when Pearl arrives this evening she will bring one of her delicious home made fruit pies. It is always such a delight to see her coming through my front door, carrying her basket with the still warm pie inside. Oh, the aroma that wafts in with her just cannot be compared to anything else on this earth.
I have to go now to start inventing my new, healthy, rainbow coloured recipe.
I will see you tomorrow, when hopefully there will still be some of Pearl's delectable pie left over for me to enjoy again. I wish you could all be here to share it with me. YUMMY! Love from Sherbetx

Yippee, It is time for the Olympics ! The whole wide world has sent very clever athletes indeed to meet up in London to compete in sports together. Oh what fun they will have. I am being very patriotic and wearing my Union Jack outfit to cheer along the English athletes. I do wish rainbow coloured blessings and very good luck to all of the athletes in the whole wide world though, at the same time. I hope they stay safe and have a very good time indeed and I hope they make wonderful new friends from many different countries.
I think I will organize my own little Olympics here at Clover Cottage. My friends and I can compete against each other on the grass in my garden. I hope the weather stays fine and does not rain as I will not be able to run very fast if my woolly coat becomes all soggy and heavy.

Doodle has painted me a lovely new picture of the cows at Greengate Farm.
Oh, he is so very talented and I do love to hang his paintings on my walls in Clover Cottage. I am going to hang it up in my kitchen and then when I invite friends to share a delicious meal we can all admire Doodle's painting.
That reminds me, it is quite a while since I have made a scrumptious dinner for my dear friends Doodle, Mango and Pearl. I will go into my garden today and see which of my vegetables are ripe and ready to pick, then I will invent a healthy rainbow coloured recipe for us all to enjoy. Oh what a happy thought! I cannot wait to share a delightful evening with my dear friends again. I am going to look at my vegetable garden right now. I do hope those naughty slugs have stayed away! Love from Sherbetx

I have been thinking about Kizzy when she was young and healthy. She so loved to run around in the fields with her friends from the farm. Now she lives a quiet peaceful life and thank goodness she has a friend like Kathy cat who comes to take her out in the forest where they enjoy each others company so very much. Get well soon Kizzy, I do hope you are soon back on your feet with no nasty aches and pains to stop you from your lovely woodland walks. Love and blessings from Sherbetx

I know that Marise mouse would be so proud of me. I also know that yoga is very good for me and it keeps me healthy and strong and peaceful. I am sure that I will work much better at my many garden tasks today as I feel so energetic. I must ask Marise mouse if she would be so kind as to come and teach Mango, Doodle and Pearl some yoga too. It would be so wonderful to all gather together in my garden under the oak tree and do yoga to the sounds of the birds in trees and to have the gentle breeze blowing around our ears.
Oh yes, it really does seem like the best idea I have had in ages.
Afterwards we could all have a deliciously refreshing pot of herb tea made from the mint in the garden, which by the way is running wildly all around my strawberry plants and is very naughty indeed!
Love from a very healthy upside down Sherbetx

I am also thinking today of all my animal friends that live all over our planet earth. Oh how I wish I could invite them all to Clover Cottage to share this Sunday with me. I am sure it would be a little crowded but what fun we would have. Can you imagine how many new friends I would make.
And of course, all the little creatures in my garden would meet them all too. Oh what a wonderful thought, to share my Sunday with so many new friends, big and small, from all over this great big world of ours. Oh dear, I am running away with myself. I must go now and find the postman with the red van and give him my letters. Love from Sherbetx

I just love the colours of my flowers so much and Oh, what delectable scents they all have. I feel like putting some flowers behind my ears and dancing around my garden in sheer delight.
In fact I think I will. I will dance and dance and I will sing and sing and I will jump and jump around with joy and I will laugh and laugh and I will roll around in the grass and just spend my day with a big smile on my face being the happiest Sherbet Sheep that I can be.
This day is just full to the brim with magical blessings. How absolutely wonderful ! I wish I could share it with everyone in the whole wide world. Love from Sherbetx

I can see banana trees and pineapples and humming birds and hibiscus flowers. Pearl told me that I could make tea with hibiscus, it would make a nice change from my peppermint tea. I don't think I can make banana tea but I do know that I can make banana cake ! Yummy what a wonderful thought. I do not have a banana tree here at Clover Cottage but I do have some bananas in my kitchen and I am going to start making a scrumptious, healthy, delicious cake right away ! I will put some nuts in it too as I do love crunchy bits in my cakes. I will invite Doodle, Mango and Pearl to share it with me. Oh what a lovely treat, scrummy, nutty, moist, slices of banana cake. Love Sherbetx

I am sitting here and I am trying not to make a single sound. I am listening to see if I can hear any baby birds tweeting from the nests in my trees. If I hear some I will be so excited. What a joy it will be to know that baby birds have been born in my garden.
I cannot talk to you for long as I have to keep perfectly still, I cannot even wiggle my ears to shoo away a fly.. Shhhh! Love Sherbetx

Yes, I know I said relax but in fact I have a little bit of work to do in my garden. I am making a new strawberry patch. I have to dig up a little corner of my garden not far from my oak tree, pick out all the stones and smooth down the soil again, then I will surround it with big rocks to make it look like a special little area. I have lots of new strawberry plants from the garden shop in the village and I will plant them and care for them and wait patiently for them to make lovely big juicy strawberries.
Yes, I know what you are all thinking! It is true, - you are reading my mind. When the strawberries are ripe I will give a whole basket full to Pearl and she will make lots of jars of delicious strawberry jam. I wish you could all come and share it with me, Pearl makes the best jam in the whole wide world. Love from Sherbetx

I am sitting here on my kitchen doorstep listening to the delightful twittering and chirping of my birds as they play in the oak tree. I must tell you that I have seen lots of newly built nests around my garden and I am so excited to think that new baby birds will be born soon.
I know though also that I have to watch very carefully in case any eggs or newly born babies fall out onto the grass. I do so hope that doesn't happen as that would be very sad for me. I am also a little afraid that the naughty cat from Greengate farm may come around to look for them.
Earlier this morning, my dear little mouse friend Mango, who lives in the watering can in my garden, came to visit me. What a kind loving little mouse he is! He brought me 2 delicious cherries to have for my breakfast. What a treat! I do not have a cherry tree in my garden so I savoured every tiny little bite of those delectable cherries. I have asked Mango to come to share my dinner with me this evening, he doesn't eat much as he is so tiny and he does not fit very well on my kitchen chairs, but I have a special little corner on my tablecloth where he can sit quite comfortably and enjoy his meal. I am so blessed to have a sweet little friend like Mango living in my garden.

Reginald Rabbit came to me in my dream and told me he loved my smiley message yesterday. He told me that the best thing I could do was to smile and that I should keep smiling and not to be sad that he had to go to a better place far far away. He told me that he was very happy and that where he lives now everyone smiles all day long. He said he is always with me and is always looking after me even though I cannot see him. He told me to never worry, and that everything is always alright and as it should be. He gave me a big hug, told me he loved me and disappeared.
At that moment I woke up and guess what?
I had a big smile on my face!

I am just going to sit in my garden and enjoy my flowers today. I am going to close my eyes and smell the perfume that is coming from them and I am going to open my ears and listen for all the lovely natural sounds, the bees buzzing, the birds tweeting, the wind blowing through the leaves on my trees and the frogs croaking ( if I am lucky)
As you can see, I am wearing my new clothes that Kathy cat made for me, that is because after I have enjoyed my garden, I am going to Doodle's home. He has invited me to share a delicious healthy dinner with him this evening. I am so looking forward to it as I have not seen Doodle for a long time, he has been so busy in his art studio. I wish you all a very happy Saturday. Love from Sherbetx

I will just have to be patient. Pearl always tell me that patience is a virtue and that everything is always alright in the end.
Anyway, what I am going to do to stop me worrying is to give Sheila sheep this lovely pot of flowers in my thoughts, as I know that it is always the thought that counts the most. I know that she will catch my thoughts in her head and receive the flowers. So until the postman delivers her gift, she will be happy to have the thoughtful flowers.
I do so hope she had lots of fun on her birthday and I do so especially hope that she had a scrumptious birthday cake to share with Mark mole and maybe even Fifi fish, if she could find her. If Sheila sheep could have been here at Clover Cottage we would have had a party and Pearl would have baked one of her most delicious cakes. I wish everyone good and lovely thoughts today as thoughts really do count!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHEILA SHEEP!
Love from Sherbet, Pearl, Doodle and Mango xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Here goes. I had just had my breakfast and I was putting my boots on, when a lovely grey pigeon flew into my kitchen. Birds often fly into my kitchen as I like to leave my door and windows open. I always welcome the birds in as I do love them sharing my home.
Anyway I went into my garden leaving the bird to fly around in my house as it pleased, I was just watering my lettuce when I heard a terrible commotion happening in my kitchen. I rushed in and I saw the most frightful thing. The naughty cat from Greengate farm had crept into my kitchen through the open door and had caught the lovely grey bird! I could do nothing to save it, the cat ran straight out of my kitchen with the already dead bird in it's mouth. Oh how sad it made me feel. I even shed a little tear for the bird but felt comfort knowing that he was now happily flying around in bird heaven. Oh but that naughty, naughty cat! I looked around again and there he was sitting under my oak tree licking his lips as though he had just eaten one of Pearl's best chocolate cakes.
I told him he was a very naughty cat indeed and sent him straight back to Greengate Farm. I hope he never comes here to hunt for birds again. I want my birds to feel safe here at Clover Cottage, it always has been a safe haven for all the little creatures. Love from Sherbetx

I have just arrived back from my little holiday at the seaside and I am very, very tired after my long journey. The sea air has been very good for me, it is little bit different from my lovely fresh country air here at Clover Cottage and it has left me feeling feel full of lovely rainbow colours. As I am so very tired I am going to have a long sleep in my cosy bed and when I wake up I will tell you all about my adventures at the seaside. See you all tomorrow, I should be awake by then.
Huge rainbow coloured blessings to you all. Love Sherbetx
