Dear friends from nearby and far far away , I am here on Christmas Eve thinking warm thoughts about all the good times I have spent with you during this last year of 2014 and all the years before that and the years before that . Oh how I miss you all ! I am so far far away from you all at this festive time . I am here, sitting in Clover Cottage and you are there wherever you are in the places that you are .
 Just remember though that you are all living inside my heart , my Sherbet Sheep heart and my Sherbet Sheep soul are filled up with love for you .
 I wish all of my dear friends both old and new , a very lovely , warm and cosy Christmas .
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet has been beamed back down to Clover Cottage from an alien spacecraft

Happy Sunday to all of my dear friends from nearby and far far away. Oh I am so pleased to see you all again.
 I know I have been away a very, very long time  and you may not believe me when I tell you where I have been, well you probably will believe me as you know I always tell the truth.
The fact is, yesterday I found myself beamed down back into Clover Cottage from an alien spacecraft. I had no idea of time but realised how long I had been away when I looked out of my bedroom window and saw frost on my grass.  At the time I was abducted and taken to another planet, way above all the other planets in the universe, the weather was warm.   I remember being taken.  I was in the middle of my vegetable patch, when all of a sudden a bright beam of light surrounded me and before I could put down my watering can, I was sucked up into  the beam at full speed and went hurtling through the clouds and far beyond and ended up inside a huge spaceship. My watering can came with me !
My aliens must have known it was my creator Barbara's birthday today so I am very grateful that they were kind enough to release me back down to Earth and to the comfort of my cottage just in time to wish her a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY !

Sherbet meets his woodland friends

Oh how lovely!
 I was out for my early morning walk in the woods just down the lane from Clover Cottage when I stepped out from behind an enormous oak tree and oops! I almost bumped into my new wooodland friends .
 I have not seen them for many weeks now and it was a delight to see them all again.
I must say I am a little bit of a hermit spending so much time alone in Clover Cottage but even though I do enjoy the silence of my own company it is very refreshing to find some  friends and spend time with them especially wonderful friends like Fox, Badger , Rabbit, Owl and Mouse.

A big bird flies into Sherbet's window and stuns himself

Oh hello dear friends from nearby and far far away.
 You may wonder why I am just laying here in these lovely maple leaves.
 Well, something happened this morning in Clover Cottage and I am here giving thanks that it all turned out alright in the end.
Let me tell you what happened.
 I was in my  cosy kitchen eating  my breakfast of scrumptious, healthy, home made muesli with soya milk, when  I heard a big, loud, single thump. It came from my big room where I read my wise words books.
 Uh Oh !  I had heard that noise before , I knew it was a bird that had flown into Clover Cottage and then had flown at top speed straight into a closed window. Oh poor birdie, he thought the glass was the way out.
I crept into my room and was afraid that I may see a dead bird laying on the floor.
Instead, when I looked around I saw that a large grey bird had landed on my comfy chair right on top of a cushion , he wasn't moving but he was breathing. He was breathing very fast and his neck was curled round into his chest and his eyes were closed .  I was very worried in case he had broken his neck and then I thought to myself that I have seen birds curled up in their nests and I knew they were very flexible , but still I was not sure about his neck.  I also knew that when I have found birds before that have flown into my windows , they lay still and stunned for quite a while and then they recover .
 I was worried as I thought he might die, I spoke to him in quiet bird language so as not to frighten him and I just left him to be in peace while I waited .
 I waited and I waited, I peeped at him again and I saw he had moved his head around a little bit so I was grateful that he had not broken his neck . His long, grey beak was poked into the cushion,  his shiny, black eyes had opened and he blinked at me and looked at me . I was very wary that I must not frighten him, I saw that he was actually a big baby as his feathers were all new and fluffy. He was still not moving but was recovering, I left him in peace again safely nestled into the cushion and then the next time I went to check on him again he had gone . I was so happy that he  had completely recovered and had sensibly flown out of an open window back into my garden.
 Oh what a relief!  Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet is worried there may be ghost behind a very old door

Oh just look at this lovely old door!
 I can just imagine all the adventures it has seen in its very, very, very old life.
I am sitting here feeling just a little bit afraid because with a door as old as this I think there may be some ghosts living behind it.
 I am telling myself to be brave and not to be silly.
 If I can find the courage to sit here long enough, I will prove to myself that there is nothing to be afraid of.  I know my guardian angels are protecting me and even if a ghost does come through the door
 ( without opening it! ) EEEEEEEEEEEEH!!!
I know my guardian angels will chase it away.
I am going to close my eyes and think good thoughts and just listen to the birds and maybe I will feel better. I know !
I will call on Reginald Rabbit to help me , I know he is always there keeping me safe.
Love Sherbetx

Sherbet is worried about a lost birds nest

Ah, how lovely to sit here and just relax.
 I have been very busy making my garden tidy after
being away from it for so long.
It has been raining here at Clover Cottage, on and off for the last few days and even though I am grateful that my wilted plants have revived, I am worried because one of the newly made birds nests in my tree has disappeared. I am very afraid that it has blown away in the wind. I do hope there were no eggs inside it yet.
I am feeling very sad for the mother bird who has lost her nest and I really do not know how I can help her . My nest making skills are not very good because I am only a sheep.
Oh dear, Oh dear, Oh dear . I do hope she will build herself a new nest.
To make myself feel better, I am going to close my eyes and sit very still. I just need to meditate a little while so I will talk to you again very soon. Sending you all lots of love and rainbow coloured blessings.

Sherbet is at Saint Francis Cottage

Dear , dear loyal friends,
here I am at Saint Francis Cottage.
  As I was stuck in the woods for many days it means of course that I was not able to take care of my vegetable garden at Clover Cottage.
 Sadly, lots of my veggies have wilted and I am afraid they will not revive . I have just stopped here in this beautiful little corner of the world to buy some  new salad plants .
Oh what a wonderful selection they have here . It makes my mouth water just to look at these scrumptious, fresh, healthy leaves .
I am so grateful that these plants are already big and I will be able to eat some of the leaves for my dinner tonight.  I cannot wait to add them to my famous rainbow coloured salad.
I am sorry but I must leave you all now as I need to take these plants home and plant them before nightfall.  I wonder if it is a full moon tonight . That would be the very best time to plant them. I don't have my full moon calendar with me in my pocket at the moment, but I will plant them anyway and  pray that they stay healthy. Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet gives thanks to Saint Francis

 Hello again dear dear friends from nearby and far far away .
 I must let you all know that I finally found my way out of the forest . I had climbed a very tall tree  to take a look inside a blackbird's nest and while I was there, even though I was a little bit entangled in the dense leaves and branches,  I was able to look way into the distance. Guess what I saw peeping out from behind a group of rolling hills?
YES, it was Clover Cottage !  Thank goodness I had finally seen which direction to walk in.
 Anyway I was very grateful to be home and to see that all was well in my garden.
 Today I  have come to visit this little statue of my favourite Saint in the whole wide world,  Saint Francis of Assisi.
. I came to give thanks to him for taking care of all the little creatures in my garden while I was away lost in the forest.
My hedgehogs, my frogs, my caterpillars, my snails and my birds are all healthy and happy and I am very grateful for that.
 Love from Sherbetx

Sherbet sleeps in the ferns

 Oh how I am missing you all.
I am still lost in the woods but these cosy ferns are making a very comfy bed for me .
This is where I have been sleeping. I snuggle right underneath these luscious green leaves until I am sure I am sheltered in case it rains during the night, I
close my eyes and in no time at all I am asleep without a care in the world.
Thank goodness there are no wild animals here to eat me before I wake up.
I feel very safe , I am not afraid and I  have faith that I will find my way out of here soon.
How lovely it would be if you could all be sharing this adventure with me !
 Love from your friend Sherbet Sheep x

Sherbet has been lost in the woods

Oh dear,
I know you must all be thinking I am a very naughty Sherbet Sheep indeed for not finding the time to write my stories.
Well, you see, I have been lost in this wood for so long now and I just cannot find my way out.
 I know it looks like this long muddy lane I am sitting next to is leading out to a world where I might find my way back to Clover Cottage but I have walked and walked and walked and walked    and all I seem to do is go around in circles and I arrive back in the same place again.
 Oh dear , Oh dear , Oh dear ,  I don't know what to do.  Luckily there are no wild animals in here , just owls that hoot at night and birds that sing in the day. Oh yes and some earthworms and some little brown mice.
I am just going for another little walk to see if I can find another path.
I must say I am feeling very blessed to be here in this wonderful forest even though I am a little bit lost . Love from Sherbetx

Happy Easter weekend to all of my friends

Here I am, Sherbet Sheep, at Clover Cottage in Wiggleway Lane. I wish all of my dear and loyal friends from nearby and far far away, a very peaceful and happy Easter weekend.  The sun is shining here, so I am sitting outside in my Easter basket, sending you all lots of love and hugs and blessings .  Love from Sherbet x

Sherbet wants to go to church

Happy Sunday to all of my dear and loyal friends from nearby and far far away.
 I came out for my morning walk in the countryside and here I am sitting on the gate of a lovely old church.
 I wanted to go in but as I am wearing my country walking clothes,  I did not think it seemed respectful  for me to wander into the church  today and join in the Sunday service. I can just imagine me sitting there in the front row with everyone dressed in their Sunday best and me a true country bumpkin in my muddy boots. I know that my soul is more important than the clothes I am wearing but I still think it  best that I come back another time . Maybe next week I will put on my smart shirt and come again as I am sure there are many wise words said in this church that I would like to listen to. Love from your Sunday Sherbetx

Sherbet is wearing his red glasses

Surprise ! Here I am again. Maybe you don't recognise me but it really is me . I have put these glasses on so that I can see a little bit better but in fact I cannot see any better, everything looks just the same to me. Oh well, I may as well take them off and return to my usual handsome self. At least when I look in the mirror without the glasses on, I will know who I am. It is always a good idea to know who we really are .  Love from Sherbetx

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day to all the mothers in the countries that are having their special day today. To everyone else I am wishing you a very happy and blessed Sunday.
 I have decided to sit here surrounded by my daisies and meditate today, so I am not going to talk much except to say goodbye for now . Love Sherbetx

Sherbet's friends are helping him in his garden

I have so much work to do in my garden after being away for so long in the forest that I have asked my good friends  Pearl, Doodle and Mango to help me tidy up my overgrown vegetable patch and my weedy flower beds. This evening we will all enjoy a scrumptious dinner together in my cosy kitchen and share stories of the adventures we have had in the last few months. I must go now as my friends just love to ride in my wheelbarrow and they are all waiting for me. Love from Sherbetx

Mango has taken a photo of Sherbet

Well, here I am, yes it is me !
 I know I am not looking like my usual handsome self but you see, it was Mango who took this picture and he is so little that he has trouble holding the camera and aiming it properly.  So this is a Mango eyed view of me, Sherbet Sheep, looking a bit like the aliens that abducted me some time back. I hope my ears aren't really that huge! I don't like to sound vain but I will ask Doodle to take a new photo of me tomorrow so that I can see what I really look like. I am feeling a little bit worried that I really do have ears as big as this.
Love from Sherbetx

It is Springtime at Clover Cottage

Spring time is here at Clover Cottage and I am waking up very early every morning to water my one pink rose and my other flowers. Oh, how I love the fresh morning air and the peace and quiet.
Also I am very proud to be able to tell you that I have the most magnificent tomato plants and every day I look at my tomatoes and wait for them to change from green to red.  Oh what a joy it is when I see a ripe tomato just waiting to be picked and added to my rainbow coloured salad.  Love from Sherbet x

Sherbet is grateful to be back in his cosy bed

Ah, how luxuriously cosy to be back in my own bed again after spending so many nights sleeping on leaves in my woodland hut.
 I am so grateful to have this comfy bed but  I am so glad I spent time in the peace and quiet of the forest watching the birds. It was so wonderful just to be still and to live right there in the present moment with just the sounds of the little creatures snuffling about in the undergrowth and the leaves rustling in the wind. I did miss my kitchen and my vegetable garden but I had my wise words books with me and a very good wind up lamp which did not need electricity. What a wonderful invention for  an adventurous sheep like me and for anyone who likes to sleep in dark, lonely, forest huts under pitch black night skies with just twinkling stars and creepy crawly things for company!  Oh, now I am scaring myself so I am going to sleep.
 Goodnight  from me, Love Sherbetx

Sherbet has been studying a woodpecker

 Today is my birthday and also the birthday of my dear friend Reginald Rabbit who now lives in a wonderful place far far away . I stop myself being sad about that because I know that at the same time he is here with me every day.
 I have been away for a long time.
 Oh how I have missed you all.  I have been living in the nearby forest studying the life of a very rarely seen spotted woodpecker.   Oh how I love that little woodpecker. I first saw him when he made a visit to the oak tree in my garden . When he flew away, I followed him to the forest at the end of Wiggleway Lane, to see where his nest was.
 I then went back again the next day and made a hidey hole hut.  I collected  fallen branches that had lots of leafy bits on them and started making my hut.  When it was cosy enough and waterproof enough and windproof enough and completely finished to the best of my ability, I went back to Clover Cottage to stock up with all the things I would need to survive for a few weeks alone in the forest. I loaded them all into the basket on my bike and rode back to my hut. Oh what an adventure it was.  I sat for hours and hours in silence waiting for the woodpecker to show up and when he did I was filled with delight!  I watched him and wrote notes about him and made lots of little drawings of him.  When night time came,  I was a little bit afraid sleeping in my hut all alone. It was very dark and I kept hearing an owl hooting nearby.  I told myself it was not a ghost and that made me braver.  Well  now I am back at Clover Cottage and enjoying my comfy bed and my cosy kitchen again.  I must say I will always visit my new woodpecker friend but at the same time I do so hope he visits me in  my garden again to spend time in my oak tree. Love from Sherbetx

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014 from Sherbet Sheep

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of my dear and loyal friends from nearby and far far away .
 I truly wish you all the most magnificent 2014 that you could ever imagine in your wildest dreams .
    Even if you don't  ever have wild dreams, I still hope that any kind of dreams you do have will all come true for you . It would be very wonderful indeed if those dreams could come true in 2014 but if they don't it just means that you have to be patient for just a little bit longer and when your dreams think you are ready to receive them , all of a sudden there they will be - all coming true just as you always wanted them to.  Love and huge hugs from Sherbetx
