The following day I heard it again and peered over our new gate, to find a little band of bullocks investigating their new found freedom.
Him Next Door and J spent the evening herding them back to their field, whilst the neighbour made good the escape route they'd created in the fence.
The bullocks made quite a mess of our path down to the bottom of the valley, but Her and Him Next Door have been trying to rectify that... it'll take time.

She was so excited this morning, eager to go. It's great the time they spend now to establish a connection with their secondary school and some of the staff well before the big day itself, orientation days really. It must make the first day so much less intimidating for them (a far cry from when I went to secondary school - which I know was last century). What's worrying me the most is the 1 to 1.5 hours homework promised a night. How will we fit it in with all her after school activities? And its very important to leave time for a bit of fun too.
