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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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
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

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

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.

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
