Rainwater and little goatlings

No matter how many times I see the Shard, I never get bored of looking at it!  Joe had a couple of days holiday this week, so yours truly was on Borough duty.  An early arrival to beat the traffic was rewarded with an illuminated Shard ..

The weather has continued to be utterly atrocious, so we have all been living in wellies and waterproofs.  Husky decided that she fancied a bit of fresh rainwater and spent a happy few minutes licking all the rain off my jacket!

I spent a very pleasant day at The Food Market in Chiswick on Sunday as a guest stall.  The stallholders and customers were all very friendly and it was nice to see a few of the old familiar faces behind some of the stalls!  Hopefully, they will manage to find us a space there for a more permanent pitch sometime soon.

Yesterday was a sad day for myself and goatie Auntie Anita as we heard of the death of one of our heroes, David Bowie.  Both of us are great fans and I was lucky enough to see him many many years ago when I was a student.  Seems that Heidi goat was also a fan as she did her Aladdin Sane tribute makeup ready for evening milking ..

Meanwhile, we have another little visitor to the milking parlour.  Young Dolly goatling has not yet had babies but has come into milk already as a 'maiden milker'.  She is still learning how to behave in the parlour but is doing very well.  Such a brave little person!

And such a cute little goatie face!
