Mike & the Princess

I blogged recently about our visit from Princess Anne and thought I would share the photos of Mike meeting the Princess Royal -

Mike enjoyed their brief chat about hunting and shooting, as she is a keen sporting lady.

I'm on a sheep shearing course this weekend, and promise to share what I learn with any would-be DIY sheep shearers. Lesson one: Are you crazy?!? Get a contractor in to shear them.

Just hire in a hearty New Zealander! Although you will end up with very soft hands, my daughter tells me, because of all the lanolin.

Oh my god that carpet is AWFUL!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again- my back kills me when I just look at a picture of someone shearing a sheep. I can't imagine doing it, so more power to you.

Kinda cool Mike got to meet Princess Anne, but cooler that he has proof!

LOL Poppy Cottage! DH and I just said that that photo could be from any time in the last 40 years!

And the game keepers are the only ones with reason to be wearing clothing that un-datable...
