Ho Ho Ho from Sherbet Sheep

Ho Ho Ho,  What fun having a Xmas day. I must tell you that while I was fast asleep in my cosy bed,  Father Christmas came down my chimney at Clover Cottage and left some gifts for me. I am so glad I put my fire out before going to bed or I would have woken to the smell of burnt boots. Or to burnt hat and beard depending on which way down Santa came !  Anyway all was well and I am glad to tell you that I am not guilty of burning Father Christmas . I awoke to the sound of distant  reindeer bells so I knew Santa was safely on his way to all the other homes. So that is my Christmas story. Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet has been out for a woodland picnic with his new friends

Ah, here I am at last.  I have been out for a very long bike ride into the woods with my new woodland friends.  Oh what fun we had.
We took a delicious picnic with us and sat on a lovely warm blanket under a huge oak tree  It was a little bit windy and a little bit cold and dusty leafy bits kept flying into my egg sandwich . I  must tell you though that I enjoyed myself very much indeed.  My foxy friend who is very wise, saved my life I am sure, as I wanted to pick some wild mushrooms to take home to put in my omelette. Foxy told me not to touch them as they may be poisonous !  Luckily I listened to him or I may not be alive today to tell this story !
 Love from a very alive Sherbet Sheep who cooked a very plain omelette for his dinner ! x

Sherbet is very sad to hear that Nelson Mandela has left this planet Earth.

Oh how sad I am.
 One of my most favourite humans in the whole world has left  his human body and gone to his new home far far far away. His name was Nelson Mandela. What a magnificent human being he was.
 I will miss him very much and I send all of my Sherbet Sheep love to all of the people in South Africa especially at this moment to my cousin Stefani Sheep who is there right at this minute !  Goodbye dear, wonderful, special Nelson Mandela.
 Love from Sherbet Sheepx

Sherbet realises that there are two of him !

Oh my goodness!    I have realised something very magical indeed.
 I have realised that there are two of me and also of course two of all of you too !
 You see I am   I ,
 ( which is the first one of me )  and then there is  MY self ,   the self that belongs to me !!  How lovely!!  And there is you and YOUR self.
 This is wonderful news isn't it  ?
 We are never alone are we.  You see, we always say things like  -  I  say to MY SELF  and  I am happy with MY SELF etc and I may say to you  Look after YOUR SELF.etc
 So you see, in fact,  I,   am telling you, -  that is the first you, - to look after your self which is the second you!!  What fun!  It looks like I will have to be very careful in future to always make sure that I am being MY SELF and not pretending to be anybody else . Imagine if I were to behave in a way that was not true to myself ( unless of course I am playing a part in the village play) . I may lose my SELF  altogether and that would be a horrible tragedy because I would not know how to find it again .
 Love from Sherbet Sheep and his very own self to all of my dear friends and to their very own selves too.. X  -  A big kiss today as it is a X for two.
PS   Oh dear does that mean that I have to start eating for two ,  I am not sure that I could eat double sized meals however healthy they are!

Thursday, 28 November 2013


  For this special day, here is a picture of some of my best,  crunchy carrots.  I am thankful and grateful for these wonderful carrots that grew so healthily in my vegetable garden .
 This evening Pearl , Doodle and Mango will come to Clover Cottage and we will enjoy a scrumptious dinner together . Pearl has promised to bring her freshly baked bread and one of her delicious home made fruit pies .  We will eat a huge plate of freshly picked vegetables and herbs from  my garden.
Oh I cannot wait. I will give thanks for every single blessing in my life . Oh how fortunate  I am to be so very blessed .
I wish you all a very happy day today with your beloved family and friends
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet had an interesting visit from Reginald Rabbit

Ah , my dear loyal friends from all over the world  Here I am again and I must say I have a very wonderful thing to tell you.  I am sure you all know by now that I have a very dear friend called Reginald Rabbit that left this planet Earth to go and live in a perfect place far far far far  away  Well, I and my self, Sherbet Sheep, think that when I see a butterfly in my house or I see a rainbow  I always know it is  really Reginald Rabbit
 Yesterday I saw a huge butterfly flying around my kitchen at Clover Cottage and guess what?
 This butterfly landed on me,  it landed right on my chest, where my heart is.
 I must tell you that this butterfly stayed there for a very long time indeed.
 I walked around doing my chores in my cottage and he stayed and stayed and stayed,  then he stayed and stayed some more .
It was as though he had come for a little holiday on the cosy wool of Sherbet Sheep.
   After a while, he did start to walk around a little bit on me so I went to my kitchen door and opened it. The breeze made his wings flutter a little bit  and then he lifted his little feet up and  just flew away into the wind.
Thank you Reginald Rabbit for coming to visit me  in the form of a butterfly yesterday.
 Love  from Sherbetx

Sherbet has naughty, slimy slugs in his garden again

Here I am  saying a huge, rainbow coloured  hello to all of my dear, loyal friends from nearby and far far away.
 Well I must tell you that I have some very naughty slugs in my garden again.   It has been raining  very, very madly here at Clover Cottage lately and although I do love the rain (as it means I  do not have to water my vegetables) it brings out lots of slimy slugs from their hidey holes. I really do not know where they all come from,  it seems like magic how they all just appear in my lettuce plants.
It is as if I have waved a magic wand and they have all popped out of thin air ( or another planet).
 I do hope it is sunny tomorrow so that they can all go back to their hidden homes.
 Love from   Sherbet x

Sherbet is learning life lessons from a wonderful bird in his garden

Oh dear, I  am stuck in my tree again.
 You see, I saw a wonderful bird flying around my garden at Clover Cottage . It looked very different to my blackbird and very different to all of my other little garden birds.
I saw it land on a branch right at the top of this tree and I climbed up to get a closer look. What a magnificent sight it was . This bird was huge !  It was a beautiful shade of grey with a yellow breast and a  long tail.
 The best thing of all was that it seemed very tame . It allowed me to get really close to it.   How lovely!  It was not afraid of me - even with my funny looking face and sticky up ears ( although Pearl always tells me how handsome I am ! )  I sat very still in my tree and  watched .  Pearl told me that every little creature has something to teach us and I was wondering what lessons of life I was learning from this special bird..  I sat and I sat and I sat, then I sat and sat some more. I sat as still as I could for a very long time .   I tried not to move or even sneeze because I wanted the bird to stay with me as long as possible. Then  my new feathered friend just flew away.
 How sad.  I wanted it to stay forever and I really hope it comes back and makes a nest in my garden.
So, I asked myself what did I learn from my lovely bird ?  I learned patience and stillness and I learned that even though I wanted the bird to stay in the tree with me I had to accept what is best for the bird and let it fly away into the freedom of the sky .  Yes it is true that every little creature has something - even many things,  to teach us.
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet wants to go bellringing in a very scary tower

Oh my goodness !
 After my long stretch of sitting in gratitude and thanks that I told you about in my last story,
  I  must tell you that I am still in this wonderful old church.   I was going to try to climb these ancient bell tower steps to do some of my very own bellringing  but  when I looked up and saw how very steep and twisty they were,  not to mention how creepy and dark they look,  I became very afraid.  I imagined I may meet a ghost from ages past, half way up and then what would I do?
Oh dear here I am all alone and I am remembering Pearl's words right now.
 She always tells  me not to be afraid to do something because I may miss out on some really good adventures !   Now I am torn between being afraid to meet a ghost and  following my sense of adventure .  MMMM , what shall I do?   What do you think I should do?
OK here I go, I have decided to follow my true desire which is to go and ring those bells and I will be very brave and not imagine scary things.  I will be glad to stand up off of these old, cold, stony steps.  I am getting very numb in my bottom bits.   Wish me luck . Here I go!  Love from a very brave Sherbet Sheepx

Happy Sunday from Sherbet Sheep

to all of my dear and loyal friends all over the world and other planets.
I am just sitting in this church this morning as I want to give thanks for all the blessings I have in my life.
 I know I don't have to sit in a church to do that  but it is so quiet in here and I feel so full of peace that it seems to be just the place I need right now.
I am all alone in here  and I just love this wonderful sound of silence that is floating around my ears.
Oh this is the perfect place to feel grateful in.
 I am grateful for all of my good friends,  I am grateful for the abundance of fresh vegetables and herbs that grow in my garden. I am grateful for all the little creatures in my garden too.  I am grateful for Clover Cottage and my cosy kitchen and freshly baked bread . I am grateful for my good health that makes me strong enough to ride my bicycle and climb trees to rescue baby blackbirds and I am just so grateful every day to be  blessed with this rainbow coloured life of mine.
  Love from Sherbet the grateful sheepx

Sherbet is a little bit worried about the impression he made on the Aliens.

Here I am again, your very own loyal Sherbet Sheep, saying hello to all of my dear friends from nearby and far far away.
 Well as you can see I am all dressed up today.
I am still getting used to being back on this planet Earth after my recent abduction by Aliens . Oh I do wish I was abducted wearing my best clothes as I really wanted to  make a very good impression up there in Alien land.
 BUT as Pearl always tells me, it is my kind soul that counts.  I truly hope that when the Aliens took their notes about me in their experiments notebook ,  they saw into my soul  instead of just seeing  my muddy gardening clothes and my old grubby boots. I would be very unhappy if  because of me, the Aliens thought that all of us Earth beings were muddy and grubby beings instead of the wonderful  amazing souls that we all are,  whether in our grubby clothes or our best clothes !
 Oh dear I am talking far too much, I am obviously very worried about all of this. Next time I happen to be abducted I will make sure I ask them if  I can go and put my best clothes on first, before being beamed up to another planet !!  Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet has a new human friend called Jai

 Oh my dear friends from nearby and far far away.
 I am here to tell you some very good news indeed
 I have a brand new human friend , well he is not totally brand new now as he was in fact 6 weeks old on the 9th of November  but I must tell you that I went to visit him  to give him this rose and to say Happy 6 week birthday and  guess what?   He has the most wonderful name !  It is short and sweet.  Well no, I don't mean his name is called short and sweet,  his name  is  JAI,  It rhymes with HI  so next time I see him I will say HI JAI !!  I am sure he will be impressed with my poetry.   Jai is very handsome indeed and I look forward to introducing him to all the little creatures in my garden. They are waiting patiently to meet him .  The frogs and slugs and caterpillars and the blackbird and the baby blackbirds and the hedgehogs and the bees told me that they will be on their very  best behaviour when they meet Jai and when he arrives and comes through the garden gate of Clover Cottage they will all say together HI JAI !!!  And he will be very welcome indeed.
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is relaxing after his abduction by Aliens.

How nice to be back on Planet Earth after my abduction from Aliens.
 I decided to come to the seaside today to help me to get over my
hair raising experience.
 At least I think it must have been a little bit scary even though my mind cannot remember any details.
 I am trying to brush the gaps out of my wool in the places where I was experimented on but I am afraid it is a little bit difficult as I seem to have some big tufts of wool missing !  Pearl tells me that I am still very handsome even though my wool is not now perfect  like other sheep.  She always reminds me that it is my kind soul that is the most important thing in this world ( and in other worlds! ) Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet has just come back from being abducted by aliens !

Oh dear , Oh dear, I am sure all of my dear friends both nearby and far far away have  been wondering where I have been. Well maybe you will find this hard to believe but I was abducted by Aliens several  weeks ago and I have only just landed back at Clover Cottage .  I do not remember what happened   to me while I was up there in a spaceship   but I can see lots of funny little spaces and holes in my wool where I have been experimented on. Oh my goodness I have just seen a big ticket that has been stuck to my ear and on it it says  SHEEP SPECIMEN FROM  PLANET  EARTH !!!. Maybe that should read SPECI SHEEP as I am not a SPECIES OF MEN !! He He Ho Ho , I have just made a joke , Oh dear I am behaving very sillily indeed maybe I am under the influence of some kind of strange tranquilizer or space drug.  Please do forgive me for being a little bit un Sherbet like but it must be the effect of returning to the Earth after being looked after by Aliens for such a long time. The most important thing is that I am back here safe and sound . I know I was very naughty to not tell you where I was going but the Aliens took me in a flash and would not let me tell my loved ones where I was going.    Love and hugs from a very extraterrestrial Sherbet Sheepx

Sherbet wants to write a book

Well, I must tell you all that Pearl keeps telling me to write a book.   I think it is a truly splendid idea.
 You see I do have a lot of stories to tell, the only things is that it surely cannot be a romantic book as Pearl would like it to be .  I think the reason for that is because most readers would  think that stories about naughty slugs and  milk drinking hedgehogs and slimy jumping frogs  were not really romantic subjects.    Maybe  I should write a cookery book and make every recipe a healthy, rainbow coloured recipe.   Maybe I should write a poetry book with rainbow coloured smiley poems  in it.   Maybe I should  simply write a  story book with Sherbet's short stories in it.    Pearl told me that first comes the thought then comes the word and then comes the deed.   So I have already thought about it and I have already talked about it so the next thing  that will happen is  that I will  DO IT !!!!     How exciting !
 I think what I really want to do is make my readers smile .  Smiling is a magical thing because  smiles  catch.   A little  bit like measles , well not like measles but you know what I mean .   If I smile then I will see faces all around me smiling too.    What a wonderful world it would be if we all smiled all the time .    Love from Sherbet   the smiling sheepx

Sherbet loves being free

 Oh how wonderful to be free!
 I must tell you that after being trapped inside Clover Cottage for so many days I just want to stay outside all day and all night.
 Well, yes,  you may be thinking it is a little bit scary to stay out all night and I do agree with you that is why I am having second thoughts right this minute.   I am not sure if I could sit under my oak tree in the darkness with no starlight or moonlight and listen to the owls hooting and the wind rustling the leaves.  Oh and imagine all  the creepy crawly things that might walk all over me with their tickly little legs . Oh yes, even though I do love all the little creatures in my garden, I am not sure I would feel quite so happy  to be sitting in the grass with them in complete  darkness,  never quite sure which part of me they may jump on next !
 Oh dear I am making myself  a little bit afraid.  I am going to go inside Clover Cottage and settle down in my nice big armchair where I know I will feel safe .
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet has lots and lots of very loyal friends in Russia!

 Today dear friends,  I must tell you that I am very blessed to have lots of very very loyal, loving friends in a place far far away from Clover Cottage in a wonderful country called RUSSIA !    
I am very happy to have such loyal friends from so far far away. I want to use this story to say a very special HELLO to those good friends and to tell them how grateful I am that they read my stories.
 I am sending all of these flowers from my garden to my friends in Russia and I hope they will enjoy reading my stories until the end of time.
 Love from Sherbet the world famous Sheep who lives at Clover Cottage in Wiggleway Lane x

Sherbet has been trapped in Clover Cottage !

Oh my dearest loyal friends from nearby and far far away.   How I have missed you all.  You have probably been thinking that I have dropped off the face of the earth but in fact I have been inside Clover Cottage this whole time .    Let me tell you why.
 Well, I forgot to mention to you that I have had a big creeping  ivy plant crawling all over my cottage, and the last time I was in my garden, I looked at it and  I thought I must cut it down or tidy it up a bit. It is very beautiful and glows in many shades of red and green,  BUT  it seemed to be taking over my home like an alien from another planet and I was becoming a little bit afraid of it because every time I looked out of my kitchen window it had grown a little bit more.   Last week I tried to get out of my cottage to water my plants and guess what ??   I couldn't get out !  The ivy had grown all over my kitchen door,  all over my front door and all over my windows. Oh my goodness,  I was trapped inside and I could not get out to tend to my garden or to write my stories.  Oh dear, Oh dear what was I to do?   Luckily I have very well stocked kitchen cupboards so I had plenty to eat and drink until help came but I was very worried about all the little creatures in my garden.  Who would give the hedgehogs their milk, who would make sure the caterpillars had enough lettuce, who would make sure the baby blackbirds in the nest were being fed enough by their mother. Oh dear, Oh dear, I was so worried.
 I had to wait patiently for so many days trapped in my cottage and I was so very grateful when  this morning I heard Doodle calling from outside.  I called back and told him where to find my big garden axe.    A few minutes later I heard him chopping and chopping ,  cutting down that naughty ivy .   Oh what bliss, my kitchen door suddenly burst open and there was my dear friend Doodle standing there with a big smile on his face. I ran out into the fresh garden air and gave him a huge hug. He was covered in bits of chopped ivy so I invited him in to Clover Cottage to have a lovely hot bath with my favourite lavender perfumed bubble bath.  All is well now and I am free again .  I have learnt my lesson and will not let ivy take over my cottage again .
 I am very grateful and very blessed to have a wonderful friend like Doodle to rescue me .
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet looks into the birds nest

My dear friends from nearby and far far away.     Here I am again in my vegetable garden at Clover Cottage.   I must tell you, that as I was waking up from my dreams, very early this morning, I heard a magical sound coming through my bedroom window. It is a sound that I have been hoping to hear since  discovering a new birds nest in my oak tree.   Yes !  Hooray ! Hooray!   The sweet sound of chirping baby birds was coming into my ears  so I jumped out of bed and ran straight outside to my garden.   I quickly found my old wooden ladder,  climbed up my oak tree and tried to see into the nest. I stretched my Sherbet Sheep body as far as it could go and I just managed to peep into the nest
Oh how delightful!  There in the nest were 4 baby blackbirds with their beaks wide open waiting for their breakfast. I felt a little bit sorry for them as their mother was nowhere to be seen and I knew that however hungry they were they would  probably not like to share my breakfast of boiled egg and toast so I came down from the ladder and sat patiently to watch for the mother blackbird to come back. It only took 5 minutes before I saw her flutter to the nest carrying something wiggly in her beak. At last I could stop worrying . Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is back at Clover Cottage

Ah, my dear, dear, loyal friends.  How lovely to see you all again.   I must say I have had a nice peaceful time at the seaside and I am now back at Clover Cottage.   You may think I am looking a little bit untidy,  but you see,  I am feeling so relaxed that I just feel like wearing my casual country clothes.  I am quite content to just sit here surrounded by daisies.  I must apologize for my strange, bent ear.  You see it was very windy yesterday and my ear was blown right down and so far it has not come up again.   I will try not to worry about it.   Pearl says that I still look very handsome even with odd ears. She tells me that even if I had no ears at all then it would not matter as it is my kind soul that matters most.  Pearl always says such wise things and I always listen to her because I can learn so many wonderful things from her.  Well, let me tell you what happened when I arrived back at Clover Cottage. First of all the naughty slugs had eaten all of my best lettuce in my vegetable garden so I will have to plant some more seeds. The good news is that I have noticed a new birds nest in my oak tree.  Oh how exciting !   I cannot wait to see if there are any baby birds in there.  I will listen very carefully early  tomorrow morning in the stillness, with my ears wide open ( that is if I can get my bent ear wide open!)  If I am very lucky I will be able to hear the tiny chirps of baby birds as they wait for their mother to bring their breakfast to them.  I will let you know what happens in my next story.
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet has escaped to find some peace

Oh my dear friends from nearby and far far away!  I am so sorry that I have not written my story for a little while. I must tell you that  I have a very good reason. You see, I have escaped to the seaside to find some peace. You may wonder why I had to find some peace . Well, let me tell you that  I could not stay at Clover Cottage because the frogs in my pond have been croaking so loudly all night long that I have not been able to sleep very well. Every morning I had woken up with tired eyes because of my naughty, noisy frogs so I decided to come here to this beach as it is a very, very quiet place indeed and there is not a frog in sight. All I can see are crabs and all they do all day is run  into holes in the sand. You will be glad to know that I am catching up on my sleep and I  am collecting shells to add to my nature corner back at Clover Cottage. Love from your dear and loyal  friend, Sherbet Sheep with plenty of sleep ! x                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; .

Oh dear, Sherbet has odd looking ears.

Oh dear , what has happened to my ear.  The last time I looked,  both of my ears were sticking straight up to the sky.  I am a little bit worried because I have never seen my ear like this in the whole of my life . Maybe it was because it was very windy today.  Maybe the wind has blown my ear down.  Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh dear , what shall I do?     I know!   I will stop worrying about it because worrying does not change anything,  instead I will sit here,  close my eyes and imagine that both of my ears are sticking up the same way and when I open my eyes again I am sure I will be back to normal.  Please wish me luck as I am sure I look very silly indeed with one ear up and one ear down!   Love from your odd looking friend Sherbet Sheepx

Sherbet has a new friend

What fun !
 I have found a new little friend who looks a little bit like me .
I think the only difference between us is that he has floppy downward facing ears and I  have upward facing ears.
 Oh how blessed I am to  to be sitting in these
 lovely purple flowers with my new friend.
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is in lavender heaven

 Here I am at the garden centre today.  I just could not resist sitting right in the middle of this
wonderful lavender.   Oh what a heavenly perfume it has .   I just cannot stop sniffing it into my nose.
Ahh,  it is so relaxing,  the more I sniff it ,  the more I just want to fall  asleep right where I am .  The only problem is,  if I fall asleep in this garden centre,  someone may come along and try to buy me, thinking I am some kind of garden ornament.   The best thing I can do is to take some of this lavender  back to Clover Cottage and plant it there , then I will lay down in my very own garden where I feel safe and sniff it to my heart's content.   Love from Sherbetx

A naughty dog called Buddy

Ah, what a joy it is to be sitting here with these pinker than pink flowers. I only wish that I had a pink hat to match them, then my life would be complete !
 Now,  I must tell you that I have heard from a very dear friend of mine that while I was away from Clover Cottage today, a very naughty, young dog called Buddy ran into my garden.  He is a black labrador and there is nothing he likes better than splashing around in water and being as naughty as he can be.
This is what happened next.   Buddy jumped into my lily pond and started to pull all of my beautiful lilies out.  He ran all around my garden at full speed, making a terrible mess, leaving chewed up lilies everywhere,  in the bushes , in the vegetable patch, in the flowerbeds,  just everywhere !
At one point he swam right down to the bottom of the pond with just his tail sticking out of the water. He was trying to pull a lily out that was stuck under a rock .  Oh my goodness what a very naughty dog he is .  Oh dear,  poor pond.   Oh dear,  poor lilies. I do hope they grow again very soon .  I will miss them .   Love from Sherbetx

Bluebells, bluebells, bluebells

Bluebells, bluebells bluebells.  Oh how wonderful to be sitting here in my bluebells.
As you can see,  I am wearing  a special hat  to match my bluebells.   My dear friend Kathy cat made it for me .
She knows how I like to blend in with my flowers .  I think if a seagull flies over me ,  it would not even see me as I am so well hidden.   I am just going to sit here for a little while longer .  I am quite happy here ,  sniffing these beautiful bluebells.
I send you all my very best rainbow coloured wishes, in fact today and today only I will send you some bluebell coloured wishes too !
 Love from your very loyal friend Sherbet Sheepx

Sherbet is a little bit worried today

Ah now, I know you didn't recognise me . I am actually Sherbet Sheep and I am out sightseeing looking at some lovely old churches.  Most of them have old,  crumbly,  moss covered walls around them and I am so glad they have gates to walk through as I am a little bit too small to climb over those huge walls .
I must say,  I think I look rather handsome in these glasses.  Yes, I know they are a little bit big for me but somehow I think I look a little bit cleverer in them    Or maybe I look like I am driving one of those old open topped cars in the country lanes with the wind blowing through my ears.
I rather like this photograph of me but Oh dear !   I have just noticed that one of my eyes seems to be bulging out of it's socket !!   Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh dear,  what shall I do?  I had no idea that I had one funny eye !!  When I get home back to Clover Cottage I will stand in front of my mirror, take these mad glasses off and have  a better look at myself .  Oh I do hope I look normal when I get home .  I am a little bit worried .   Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is planting a cherry tree called George after the new baby prince

 Oh how exciting. I have at last been told the name of the new baby prince .  His name is George.
 I am now off to the garden centre on my bike to buy a new spade .   I am going to plant  a  cherry tree in my garden at Clover Cottage and I am going to call it George after my new dear little friend baby Prince George who was born yesterday. I know I also have another very special friend called George who writes to me sometimes.  Doodle, my very creative friend will make me a special wooden sign  with the name GEORGE on it and when it makes cherries, I will give them to Pearl and she will make a special fruit pie and we will call it George's pie.        Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet will plant a cherry tree for the new Royal baby

Oh my goodness ! Oh my goodness !  Oh dear me, Oh dear me, Oh dear me.
 I am so very sorry to have been away so long from all of my dear friends from nearby and far far away.
 You see, I have been very, very busy indeed and I did not have one single, little moment to sit down and write my story.
 I am very aware that very soon my dear human friends William and Kate  will very, very soon be having a very important new baby.
 I am so looking forward to this wonderful occasion .  I will plant a special fruit tree in my garden at Clover cottage to mark the birth of the new Royal baby.   Let me think, now what kind of fruit tree should I plant, apple, pear, peach cherry, plum ?  Well,   I do love cherry blossom and I do love cherries so I think I will plant a cherry tree and when the baby is born and I know it's name I will name my tree after the baby. I will ask my dear friend Doodle dog to make a special wooden sign that I can hang on the tree. Oh what fun waiting to see if the baby will be a boy or a girl.  Pearl told me that this baby is such an important baby because one day, a long, long time in the future, it will be the new King or Queen of our great country.
Love from Sherbet,   the sheep who never forgets his friends

Happy Birthday Sheila Sheep

Happy Birthday to my dear and loyal friend Sheila Sheep. I have known Sheila Sheep ever since we were both little lambs . Here I am, in this picture, giving her lots of presents with a truly scrumptious birthday cake on top.
I must tell you that I have sent a pretty little gift with the postman in the red van to take to Sheila Sheep at the seaside I do hope he drives fast enough and delivers it safely to her in time.
 What fun it is to have birthdays.  My own birthday is February the third just like Reginald Rabbit.
That is a long way away but I am still looking forward to it as it is a time when Pearl bakes me her special delicious, scrummy, nutty,  chocolate cake .
Mmmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
 I do hope Sheila Sheep will have some truly scrumptious goodies to eat on her birthday.

Sherbet met some old friends on their single green bike

I was out for my morning walk, enjoying the delightful sound of the birdsong all around me , when I must tell you that I bumped into some old friends that I had not seen for a long time .
Oh how lovely it was ,  They were all riding together on one single green bike. Oh what fun they were having riding through the forest.  My fox friend , my rabbit friend, my owl friend and my badger friend all turned around to wave at me as they rode by. I was delighted to see them all. How healthy they looked! I think they must have their very own vegetable garden just as I have.  Love from Sherbetx

Reginald Rabbit is pleased with Sherbet's soul message

 Here I am  dear friends and I simply must tell
you that I had a very pleasant surprise this morning.
I looked out of my kitchen window and who do you think I saw ?
Yes it was my very close and precious friend Reginald Rabbit. He was in my vegetable garden watering my carrots for me . He told me that he had come especially to see me all the way from his new heavenly home way up in the sky to tell me that he was very pleased with my message yesterday.
if you do not remember yesterday dear friends it was the important message that we should begin to see ourselves as souls with bodies rather that bodies with souls . Reginald told me that it was very true,  that we  really are souls with bodies and we are not bodies with souls. Reginald told me that he lives in a place where everyone knows this truth.
 Oh how exciting to know such a wonderful truth for sure!
Love from Sherbet x

Sherbet has a very important message about his soul

Today dear friends from nearby and far far away I have a very important message .
 As you know I have a very wonderful friend called Pearl Pig and she is very, very wise indeed.
Pearl has taught me lots of very valuable lessons and this morning she came to my kitchen door holding one of her scrumptious home baked loaves full of delicious grains and seeds, just as I like it and guess what she told me?
Pearl, my very wise and clever friend told me that,
 Now I thought that was very important news indeed so I have written it in big letters.
Every day from now on I am going to take her advice and begin to see myself as a soul with a Sherbet Sheep body rather than a Sherbet Sheep body with a soul . I know this will make a great difference in my life and make me a much better sheep living as I am on this planet called Earth! Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet realises that caterpillars turn into butterflies!

Happy rainbow coloured Sunday to all of my dear, dear friends from nearby and far far away.
  I must tell you that when I took  a walk around my garden early this morning, I noticed  that so many salad leaves in my vegetable garden had been eaten up by the naughty caterpillars that have decided to live there.  I  must say I stood for a few moments and wondered how they got there and then I remembered something very important indeed !    Guess what ?  Several weeks ago I had watched very closely as some fluttering white butterflies did something strange on my salad leaves.  They were laying lots of tiny, yellow, stripey looking, pollen looking things on the edges of the salad leaves! 
I now realise that they must have been little caterpillar eggs, hundreds of them !  I then remembered that Pearl had told me that caterpillars turn into butterflies. How wonderful nature is.  Imagine a funny, little, wiggly caterpillar starting life as a funny, little, wiggly caterpillar then turning into a beautiful, delicate, fluttering butterfly . What an amazingly, amazing thing to happen!  Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is feeling very blessed to live on this magnificent planet

Here I am in my amazing garden at Clover Cottage in Wiggleway Lane.
 Oh how I love my one pink rose.
  I can spend hours and hours and hours just gazing at it's beauty.
  I do so love to water it with my favourite watering can but I am very, very careful  indeed not to give it too much water or too little water.
Ah how blessed I am to have this wonderful garden.
 How blessed we all are to share this planet earth with such a  scrumptious variety of beautiful flowers and plants .
 We must all try our best to keep them happy and healthy so that our planet can always stay a magnificent place for us all to live. love from Sherbetx

Sherbet's Summer Solstice

Oh dear, Pearl just told me that today is the Summer Solstice. the longest day of the year!
 I forgot and now it is evening time.  I must tell you that here at Clover Cottage it was actually the most spectacularly sunny day that I have seen for weeks and weeks so that news does not surprise me at all.
 I am just sorry that I was not outside all day long  watching the day go by as it went through it's long journey from morning until evening. Oh well I will just have to be patient until next year comes and I have another chance to enjoy a new Summer solstice. Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is doing yoga today

Good day dear friends.
I am sitting here on my green, green grass on this very fine day.  I must tell you that I feel like  I want to do a  little bit of yoga today.
It does me so much good and my  freshly mown grass is the perfect place to  do it  on.
Oh how I love the smell of newly cut grass , you know I think it could be one of my favourite smells in the whole wide world.  I must start my yoga now.
 I wish you all a wonderful rainbow coloured day. Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is resting after his morning walk

Ah, how peaceful it is here. I am just having a little rest after my early morning walk.  You may be wondering where my boots are, well I have taken them off and they are waiting for me under a nearby oak tree.
  Oh how beautiful Wiggleway Lane is these days.  The hedgerows are full of wild flowers, the butterflies are fluttering happily in and out of the long grass, the birds are chirping in the trees, the bees are buzzing and the spiders are spinning fine, new webs.  Oh how blessed I am to be sitting here on this rock surrounded by the simple pleasures of nature.
 Love from Sherbetx

Sheila Sheep is going to a big hospital today

 Today I have a little bit of news.   The postman with the red van brought me a  letter from my dear friend Sheila  Sheep who lives at the seaside.  She has told me that today,  this very day,  she has to go to a big hospital to see a special doctor.  Sheila Sheep has a little bit of a  problem in one of her lovely brown eyes and the doctor is going to make it all better for her.
So here I am, the famous Sherbet Sheep of Clover Cottage in Wiggleway Lane, sending her a big garden full of flowers to make her feel  loved and to tell her not to worry, as everything will be alright.  Everything is always alright in the end.
  Love from Sherbet Sheep to Sheila Sheep x

Sherbet is still in the village of Anmer

Here I am showing you more pictures of my visit to Anmer village church. It is the local church next to the new future home of  William and Kate. How blessed they are to have this lovely little church right on their doorstep!   I am just having a nice rest before I explore the  village.
 Here I am a little bit later in my day sitting next to this lovely old sign in the village of Anmer in Norfolk

Look at those scrumptious Roman Numerals. What fun !

Ah how blessed I am to have this time to just be. To  just sit quietly listening to the buzzing bees in the hedgerows  and the tweeting birds in the trees above me.
I wish you could all be sitting here with me in the sunshine enjoying this day.
Love from a very relaxed and happy Sherbet Sheep in the village of Anmer in the county of Norfolk in the green and pleasant land of Englandx
