Little lost ram

Look what's just arrived on my doorstep - a decent sized surprise box from Roxie! It's full of delightful 10-12 ply cotton (thicker cotton is hard to come by in Aussieland) - perfect for a multitude of hand towels and suchlike! Plus books 2 and 3 in the Sanna series (written by the very clever Ms Roxie herself) - signed no less - a real treat! (Sanna and the Dragons, and Sanna meets Dauntless Swiftsure)

But - wait - what's this? Lurking in a corner, looking a little peaky from his long trip in the airless cargo hold and bumpy postie's van ... OMG, it's young Bobby Ram!

What's going on?! Why did he desert his loving family? I checked out Roxie's blog, and discovered the story :
... I got a call from the Transcendent Peace Potter's Commune and Herb Farm. They had just received a letter from Bobby. I thought he had gone home to them. The letter read, "Lulu has brok my heart and left. She mad a ful ov me in front ov my frends an famly and I cannt stand to see them laffing at me or wurse, feeling sory for me. So I am going away. Mabe someone will bucher me for mutton. I donnt care. I love you all. Bobby"

Well, at least we've found him now! Hopefully we can show him a good time, save him from the butchers, and find him a sweet gentle young lamb to help heal his broken heart. Lulu was always going to create havoc, she really isn't a lamb to have a quiet life with ... !

And yes, I frogged the Kai-Mei socks. The yarn is marinating in my stash, while I wait for my sock-knitting enthusiasm to return. Thank you everyone for your thoughtful, interesting, and supportive comments on the whole problem!


  1. Robby Ram?? He is so cute!!! You are very lucky he took a ride with the wool!!! I know he will ahve a wonderful stay!!

  2. Poor Bobby. Maybe he'll find new love there since Lulu dissed him.

    I love Roxie's books. I read them each in one sitting. They're addictive and I hated coming to the end.

  3. So That's where he got to! I thought the box was a little heavy when I sealed it up. That scamp sneaked himself through customs and quarantine! Oh, I do hope he won't be a problem for you. A lovesick young ram can be quite tedious. Poor boy. Poor you. You just get one troublesome sheep off your hands and another deposits himself on your doorstep.

  4. Poor Bobby - I hope you're planning on a stiff talking too with Ms Lulu when she gets home
