… always has to be paid for.
Good morning. At least it is not blowing. We can survive most temperatures as long as there is no wind and the early mornings are often calm. I will wear tights, track pants, two pairs of socks, a singlet, two long sleeved T shirts, a long sleeved thermal and a big heavy teenage boys hoodie and then my clown suit, my big work jacket and thermal boots. Then two pairs of gloves and my scarf and hattie. I will waddle as I walk. But I wish I was a sheep this morning with their heavy wool cladding.
I think I am going to invest in some long underwear this year but I have no idea what would be good.
The worst part is when I have to take off my gloves to wash Daisy’s udder and put the cups on. Then my hands are wet, and they freeze very quickly – this is bad. She is still milking out unevenly so it is not a fast process either.
But she is still giving way too much milk to even think about drying her up even if I wanted to which I don’t. So we will design protocols to deal with the cold. They did it in the old days on these little farms. I can do it now. I just have to work out how. Though I can see why in Europe they built the cow shed onto the house!
Good morning. Have a lovely day. When the sun comes out it will be lovely here too.
