I am getting very excited about next week! I have only just realised the big event is next week, I had meant to get fit in preparation. Well, I have been digging up the allotment and walking, not to mention the odd bit of alpaca and sheep wrangling. But I haven't been following a particular fitness regime, just increasing my exercise levels. Why? Because next week I am booked on a sheep shearing course!
I did this course three years ago. I had never handled a sheep in my life then and I wasn't at all fit so I found it really hard. Now I've helped out over a couple of shearing seasons and done some dagging and foot trimming in the winters so I've got more experience. Last time I did the course I was due to go on holiday so I only did two days, this year I will be attending all three days. Three days in a row of shear hard work (couldn't resist the pun). I just hope my body will keep up with what my mind wants to achieve.
I am sadly short of pictures however here I am shearing last year. Apologies for the poor image quality - lanolin and camera lenses aren't a great combination!
I'll let you know how I get on!
