I am still here at the seaside staying with Sheila sheep and I must say that I am having a really wonderful time. My legs are getting a little bit worn out as I have been walking and walking and walking and walking. It is not snowing here anymore and there is no ice left on the pavements so I have not slipped over at all. Thank goodness for that. One funny thing happened though that I must tell you about. I have been sleeping really well after breathing in so much cold sea air but last night I had a very silly nightmare indeed. I thought it was real. When I woke up and before I had opened my eyes, I had the feeling that my whole bedroom was filled with mad flying aliens. I was a little bit worried as I thought they were going to capture me and transport me up in their spaceship to another planet where they would do experiments on me to see what I was made of. Now, on the one hand I know that I would enjoy the adventure of going to another planet and being around aliens but on the other hand I was a little bit worried at the thought of being the subject of an experiment. Also if they never let me come home again, who would look after all the little creatures in my garden and keep my vegetable patch alive?
As it happens, I am glad it was just a dream as it gives me less to worry about. Love from Sherbetx

By the way I forgot to tell you that I am going to visit Sheila Sheep at the seaside tomorrow. Maybe there will be less snow where she lives and I will not have to worry about sliding over all the time. My own garden though has thawed out a bit so I can see my grass again. Oh how I have missed it!
I will be a little bit busy having adventures and smiling a lot so I will write to you when I have a little gap in my days.
For now I wish you all the most lovely rainbow coloured days until I talk to you again.
Love from your dear, loyal friend Sherbet Sheepx .

I must tell you that my pond has frozen over so I have taken my frogs into Clover Cottage until it thaws out. They are a little bit slimy and they have some pond weed stuck on their legs so I decided it is best if they stay in my bathroom until they clean up a bit. At this very moment, they are jumping up and down in my shower like mad bouncing jelly beans, having a truly wonderful time. I am so blessed to have such happy froggy friends filling my cottage with joy.

Here I am sitting in my oak tree. I was checking to make sure my blackbirds are warm enough in their nests. You will be glad to know that all is well, they are very snug , snug as a bug in rug, so I am not worried about them anymore. This is just a quick hello as I have promised to have a snowball fight with Mango in 5 minutes time. Bye for now. I must climb down from this tree, very carefully indeed!

We soon warmed up again in front of my lovely log fire and we both had the most beautiful pink, healthy looking cheeks after our adventure in the snow. Love from a snowy Sherbet Sheepx

I just think that peas in their pods are so beautiful and what a wonderful delicious smell they have.
One of the things I really love to do is to sit on my doorstep at Clover Cottage with a big basket of freshly picked peas and shell them. It does take me ages and ages to do but what a joy to see all of those beautifully fragrant, round peas sitting there, all together in my kitchen bowl.
I must tell you that I am now looking through all of my recipe books for a special pea recipe. I feel like making a delicious pea soup and I will invite Doodle, Pearl and Mango to share it with me this evening. If we are very lucky, Pearl might bring some of her scrumptious home made bread with her, the one with the sunflower seeds and sesame seeds in it.
Oh yummy, I cannot wait for the evening to begin. Love from Sherbetx

I truly wish you all the most perfectly rainbow coloured day that you could ever imagine having in your whole life.
I myself am feeling very happy. I am finding myself bursting into song all over the house. I just cannot stop singing. I am singing in the kitchen, I am singing in the bathroom, I am singing in my garden and I am singing while riding my bike along Wiggleway Lane. Oh what a joy it is to sing. I know you probably cannot imagine what my voice sounds like but I will tell you that it is not so terrible that it frightens the frogs but on the other hand it is not so perfect that I would get a job in a choir of angels. So whenever I feel the urge to burst into song I am just going to do it. Clover Cottage is in a very quiet place so I do not have to worry about disturbing anyone. I am free to just be myself and Pearl told me that being yourself is the very best and most perfect thing you could ever be. Love from a very smiley Sherbet Sheepx

I have been cleaning Clover Cottage from top to bottom. I have been dusting my wise words books and have been sorting out lots of bits of pieces in order to make more space in my cupboards. I am sure my spiders will be much happier now that they have more room to make their homes. I know I am supposed to wait until Spring before doing Spring cleaning but I just wanted to do it now simply because I feel like doing it, that's all. I have been feeling full of energy and have been singing all around the house. This morning I heard the blackbirds in my oak tree joining in with my songs and the frogs in my pond croaking along with me too. Even if they were a little out of tune it is such a joy to be in harmony with nature.
I am sure I will still be singing tomorrow, so if you have any requests please let me know.
Love from your friend Sherbetx

Yes it's me, Sherbet Sheep !
I have had my wool cut today as it was getting a little bit long and straggly. I am showing you this picture of me from the back so that you can see me exactly as I saw myself when the barber held the mirror behind me to show me the back of my head !
Don't my ears look big ! Oh my goodness, I must make sure I don't walk backwards too often otherwise everyone will think I have really enormous ears .
My dear wise friend Peal has just reminded me that it is my kind heart that is the most important thing not the size of my ears. Of course she is so right. I must not worry about silly things like ear sizes anymore !

Aunty Manu told me that the weather in Paris was a little bit cold but the food at her local bistro was as delicious as ever and the market stalls I loved so much when I was there in October were still overflowing with the most scrumptious fruit, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs and of course lots of cheese, smelly cheese, mouldy cheese, yellow cheese, white cheese, orange cheese, crumbly cheese, hard cheese, melty cheese, herby cheese, peppery cheese and even blue cheese but it only has blue bits in it, it is not really blue of course.
Oh I do miss Paris, it is my favourite city and I cannot wait to go and stay with Aunty Manu and her squeaky floorboards again

Ah, peace at last. Dylan dog has left to go back to his town house. He popped in to have breakfast with his cousin Doodle on his way home and I do hope for Doodle's sake that he was not dancing all the way through breakfast! I am sure he must be quite worn out after all of that action over the last few days
I am here at Clover Cottage, enjoying a quiet breakfast all on my own with just the sounds of the birds singing in the trees outside. Oh what joy. How wonderful to be here alone with my thoughts and how blessed I am to be living in this wonderful cottage with my amazing garden outside.
I wish you all a truly magnificent day doing whatever it is you love doing best.

You see, Doodle is a very creative dog who lives a very quiet life and loves to be alone in his design studio where he works in silence most of the day (apart from the bird song and the sounds of nature all around him.) His cousin likes to play loud music and dance all day long and that really does not suit the peaceful atmosphere that Doodle needs for his work, so he has asked me if I would welcome Dylan to my home for a few days. Of course I said yes, even though I too lead a very peaceful life.
I wondered whether I had made the right decision though when I awoke this morning to the sound of a big thumping drum beat vibrating the windows of my cottage. Oh my goodness that did feel a little alien for my quiet country life but I do like to help others when I can so I will put ear plugs into my ears and be a perfect host! I will see you all again tomorrow. Please do wish me luck with my very lively guest!

I know ! I will resolve to do more yoga and I will resolve to do my meditation twice a day as I know I should. Ummm, what else. Oh yes, my next new year resolution is to not make any more new year resolutions. I think I will just make sure I count my many blessings every single day and always, always feel gratitude for all the wonderful things I have in my life. Yes that's it. So I will start right now by telling all of my dear friends both nearby and far far away how very grateful I am to have you all in my life and how very blessed I feel to be living on this planet earth at the same time as all of you. Thank you for reading my stories. It is a joy to share them with you.
Love from a very grateful Sherbet Sheep x.
