Bree the Calf

I had an exciting Saturday afternoon when one of the cows in the field at the back of our house gave birth to a gorgeous calf!

I arrived just after she had been born (thankfully I think, as she had to be pulled out hooves first by the farmer with a bizarre contraption!). Paul, the farmer told us that she would stand up after about 20 minutes but after 2 hours she was still lying on the ground with only one attempt to get up. Paul came back later and with much cajoling and force she stood up Bambi-esque and wobbling a lot.

Snow Patrol – Royal Albert Hall

On Wednesday 25th November I went to the Albert Hall to watch a mammoth 3 hour set by Snow Patrol. Firstly: what a venue – such an awesome place and made even better by our seats 3 rows from the front! It was a simple set, but it worked. Gary was incredibly charismatic and he completely engaged with the crowd. And what a voice – in the words of Strictly’s CRH – AMAZING!
