And here's Bunty's two little people (again, one male and one female) born on Friday morning just as I was about to leave to do my deliveries!
It looks Martha and Moonstar may have something on their minds tonight as well so I'll be back up there sooner rather than later this evening. To be honest, I was hoping for an early night as I have to take Bramling and Caffrey to their new home in Somerset tomorrow and could do with getting a good night's sleep. Looks like it may not happen!!
We had a very exciting Thursday here in the goat shed as Andy the Cheese came to pay us a visit to pick up enough milk to make some cheese for the Young British Foodie awards dinner. He has made it into the final three!!!! So, we are all very pleased for him. Footsie, of course, was delighted to see him, especially as he came with a bag containing bananas for her. Here they are meeting for the first time:
Andy was delighted to meet all the girls and has written a piece about us on his own blog, along with some pictures that he took. So, check out http://handyface.wordpress.com/tag/ellies-dairy/

One of the house rules at Ellie's Dairy is that we always need to have a lot of cake! Francesca obliged this week when her mum and niece came to visit, bringing with them the most enormous Victoria sponge you have ever seen. Needless to say, there isn't much left ....
It was a lovely warm day today but there have been a few very chilly nights this week. The babies in one pen all snuggled up together in a big pile - there wasn't a single one sitting on its own! Nice and cosy ..
