I went to the Harvest supper and made lots of new friends. How delightful it was . I loved listening to everyone chatting away happily and laughing and joking. It made such a nice change for me as I am sure you know that I live alone at Clover Cottage. I do love being alone and spending my days in peace, but I am sure it does me good to spend time in company like I did last night. The food was so delicious and I especially enjoyed the apple crumble made with apples from a very special, old local apple tree. Oh dear I am feeling very tired, so I must have a little nap now . Love from Sherbetx

Kathy cat has come to visit me at Clover Cottage. How lovely! I have not seen her for so long and I have been worried about her because her best friend Kizzy horse is getting a little bit old and has been having trouble with her health. I am very pleased to tell you that Kizzy is doing much better and is enjoying her walks in the woods again.
Kathy cat brought me some delicious, pink, home made fruit juice made with 3 different fruits and it was truly delicious. She told me that if I drink a big glass of it for my breakfast then I will feel full of energy all day long. So tomorrow morning I will drink my juice and then go out into my garden with my new energy and sweep up all of the leaves that keep falling onto my grass. This evening I am going with Kathy cat to a special Harvest Supper where we will meet Sheila sheep, Mark mole, Pearl pig and Doodle dog. Mango may come too if I can find him. He seems to be spending a lot of time buried in the leaves lately, he has such fun in there. I have heard that there will be a scrumptious apple crumble to eat with lovely, creamy, yellow custard so I am looking forward to it very much. Love from Sherbetx

The windows in Clover Cottage are rattling so hard and the green,yellow, brown, red, orange and yellow leaves are just flying all around my garden. I know Mango will love it but I do not like to see my poor trees all bare with no leaves on. I do worry about the birds because I don't know where they go to keep cosy in the cold weather. I will ask Pearl she is very wise and may know the answer. I do hope the wind stops soon. I must say that I am still feeling my lovely, loving hug that I had yesterday. I cannot wait until next year when I will get another big hug for HUG A SHEEP DAY !
Love from a very wind blown Sherbet Sheepx

What a happy cuddly day it is today. It is a very special day. It is HUG A SHEEP DAY !!! Yippee that means I should get lots of hugs.
I must say that this morning I went for a lovely relaxing walk along Wiggleway Lane to visit the animals at Greengate Farm. I wandered in the gate to see if anyone there wanted to hug me. I went to see the cows in the fields, I asked Buttercup, Daisy and Gertrude if any of them would like to hug me for Hug a Sheep Day.
I must say I was very surprised when they told me that they did not want to hug me, they were more interested in eating their grass, I went on to see the goats, they were the same goats that came to my very special Olympic day. They were too busy climbing a pile of logs to hug me so I went to see the hens, they just pecked my green rubber boots, no hugs there either. Oh dear, I really did think there was more love in the world ! I did not give up though, I visited the big beautiful brown carthorse. He was much bigger than me and I am sad to say he didn't even see me ! He was swishing his tail and was more interested in keeping the naughty flies away.
Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh dear, I was beginning to feel that I was unlovable.
I slowly walked home feeling rather invisible. I could not believe that on this very special hug a sheep day, nobody wanted to hug me.
Love from a very happy, thoroughly hugged Sherbet Sheepx
HAPPY HUG A SHEEP DAY TO ALL OF MY DEAR SHEEP FRIENDS BOTH NEARBY AND FAR FAR AWAYXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Anyway, when I opened my kitchen door after eating my scrumptious breakfast of toast made of some leftover delicious homemade bread that Pearl gave me, I saw hundreds of leaves on my lawn. My first thought was Mango! I am saying this because I know that Mango just loves jumping around in my piles of leaves. I put on my boots and went to knock on his watering can house door and asked him if he would like to help me sweep up the leaves. He of course said yes as he does like helping and he was especially delighted as he knew that his reward at the end of leaf sweeping would be to bury himself in the lovely crunchy rainbow coloured leaves.

But, what a delight to see my lovely, beautiful, fresh, green, scrumptious, aromatic herbs all free and happy away from those naughty weeds that were trying to grow all over them.
I do so love to have a happy garden !
When my vegetables and flowers are happy they grow much better.
Sometimes I have lots of slugs and too much rain and too many windy days and I just know my garden feels a little less happy when faced with all of those things. Thank goodness all is calm today in my garden. Love from Sherbetx

I have been staying at Pearl's house for the last few days.
I do so love riding my bike all the way along Wiggleway Lane even though at the moment there are so many puddles. I must tell you that I secretly love riding straight through the middle of the puddles. What fun I have making the water spray up from my wheels on both sides. Thank goodness I have my lovely waterproof rubber boots to stop muddy splashy spots from making splodges on my legs.
I do so love staying at Pearl's house because as you all know she makes the most wonderful homemade bread full of seeds and crunchy bits and her scrumptious fruit pies are always such a delight to behold. Well as you can hear I have had a lovely cosy time with Pearl but now I have to get back to work in my garden. I see my herb garden needs lots of weeding so that is what I am going to do today.

I thought it was real. I woke up in complete fright at 4 am this morning and it took me a few moments to realise that I was safe in my cosy bed in my bedroom at Clover Cottage.
I will tell you about my dream which I think you could call a nightmare really.
I can't remember all of it, as it has faded away from my brain but when I opened my eyes this morning, I was left with an impression of hundreds of mad, rainbow coloured aliens spinning round and around my bedroom. I thought they were going to abduct me and take me up in a spaceship to do scary experiments on me. They all came closer as though they were about to take me with them, when I shouted NO! NO! And at that moment I woke up and was so relieved to find myself safely in my bed. Oh dear, I do hope they don't come back to my dream again tonight. Maybe I will ask Doodle to stay with me.

I heard a loud knock on my kitchen door. When I opened it there stood my dear friend Doodle holding his drawing book and his pencils. he told me that he had woken up bright and early full of inspiration and he just could not wait to gather up his pencils and start drawing. His first thought was me!
How lovely ! I do love being a model ! We went into my garden where I frolicked around happily doing what I love to do and Doodle captured it all in his magical way on his drawing book paper. What a wonderful talent he has. I think maybe when he goes home he may put lots of rainbow colours onto his drawings, but for now here I am showing you the lovely drawing of me and my hosepipe. I am very proud to have such a wonderfully creative friend like Doodle. Love from Sherbetx

I am a little bit late with my story today as this morning I have been so very busy doing my garden tasks. You cannot imagine how many brown bits I had to cut off of my plants and flowers. Now though they look so much more beautiful and here I am at this very moment, standing in my garden at Clover Cottage very tired after my mornings work but very proud to be gazing at a vision of a purely delectable mixture of rainbow coloured flowers with no brown dried up bits to spoil their perfection. Oh what joy! I am now going to relax with a nice cup of mint tea and read some words from my wise words books. Thank you for joining me at Clover Cottage today. Love from Sherbetx

It is the birthday of one of my very best friends. He is a very private person so I am not going to tell you his name but I just want you to know that he is a very precious friend and he is always there when I need him.
We will have one of our really good adventures today.
I am going to take him to a lovely, perfect place and treat him to a delicious lunch. We will celebrate his very special day together. What fun we will have.
This morning, Mango, Doodle, Pearl and I gave him lots of birthday gifts and birthday cards. Oh how we love birthdays! Every year we all get a little bit wiser and a little bit closer to being the best person we can ever be. Every year we find we have more rainbow coloured blessings and more rainbow coloured adventures. How blessed we all are to be living on this planet called Earth with all the little creatures and all the plants, trees and flowers. Happy rainbow days to all of my friends everywhere.
Love from Sherbetx
