Oh to be loved by a calf…

It’s been a while since my last post. Mostly due to lots of work, and starting my day earlier to fit more in.

Since my last blog I’ve taken on an orphaned calf, a large soft furnishing order, I’ve designed my new spring range of bunting/garlands, and taken over the running of the Dumfries and Galloway Mumpreneur networking group (to name a few things).  I’m loving being so busy, but it does mean some things get missed, like my blog and down time!

I thought I’d get back in to my blog by introducing you to my Calf.

Name:  Buttons

Age:  3 months

Weight:  very  (according to toe calculations)

The wee video above shows a clip of me feeding Buttons this morning. He gets a little frustrated in between top ups of his bottle. It would probably speed things up if he gave up trying to find if I had udders!

And people ask why I spend my life in overalls and waterproof trousers!
