Highlights of Today

Its not every day that I look up from my sewing machine to see a beautiful Jersey cow out on the Market Place!

This is Rosie and she's looking to be milked...

I'll show you how first...
Now its your turn...
Bring it on!...

I think I'm getting the hang of this!

Well, I think I've got a cup full.

Let's get you back to the future now Rosie, and your nice green field.

Cup and ball fun on the market cross.

All's quiet at the butchers shop...
But not for long!
The excitement of Victorian style sausage making!

Time for a breather...

When do I get one of those?!

A woman's work is never done you know...not in Victorian England!
Oh the distractions!

    The cow was sweet and yes she looks like she could do with a good milking!
