Hi Guys 

Wow, what a week for weather! We have gone from snow, to rain, to sun to howling gales all in seven days! The mobile labs have been out and about all week and have taken all that Mother Nature can throw at them and have still come back smiling! 

We cannot believe how busy we still are.  Here in the middle of December we are now doing Faecal Egg Reduction Tests and wormcounts to check the efficacy of winter worming.  We truly thought we would be taking it easy by now, with perhaps a bit of light housework around the labs – some Christmas decoration hanging on the microscopes – but no! We are still up to our ears in poo!  We even did a wormcount on some reindeer poo the other day – well it is Christmas! 

I have taken a couple of hours out today to put up my own Crimbo Deccys though and spend hours each night writing Christmas cards and secretly wrapping pressies. I really do love Christmas even though this year is tinged with sadness (due to the loss of my lovely horse, Eric), but life has a habit of chugging on. 

Well, with the prospect of almost another full week of appointments to look forward to next week, I am now off to put my feet up, with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie, to watch the ‘Strictly’ final – “Come on Harry!” 

By for now
