Arrived back home this morning from a three day 'Busmans Holiday' at Pophams in Cornwall with Gary and Felicia. Stocked up the larder with lots of groceries, and got extra veterinary stuff. It's so much cheaper over there now! We had a great few days looking through the alpacas and helping out with all the chores that need doing. They have been blessed with thirty or so cria this year with lots of really stunning Suris.
Whilst we were there we took in an open day at the Natural fibre Company in Launceston and were shown around the mill. The yarn production was explained from start to finish as we walked the length of the factory following the fleece as it was fed through the various machines.
It all made for an interesting day,topped of nicely with a few pints of real ale at the 'Riser' and a cracking curry with friends and neighbours.
Back to my old job tomorrow. I have an antique bed to restore for someone but if the weather is anything like today's I shall be glad to be in the workshop.Get the woodburner going and maybe warm up a cornish pastie or two on the top!
