Friday Funnies – Attack Of The Sheep

Gearrannan Blackhouse Village. Carloway. Isle of Lewis. Outer Hebrides. Scotland.

Friday Funnies.

Attack of the Sheep. Or my alternate title. Anxiety in Action.

“I believe that the ability to laugh at oneself is fundamental to the resiliency of the human spirit.” 

– Jill Conner Browne

In the past, I’ve shared about the day trip that my mother and I took to Scotland’s Isle of Lewis in May of 2018 (for our itinerary check out the post: What To See In One Day On The Isle of Lewis).

I’ve also been very open about the fact that I have anxiety issues.

My mother and I had one day on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland and decided the best way to see the maximum amount of sights was to rent a car. I was the navigator and I don’t passenger well to start with since it tends to increase my propensity toward anxiety. And this was also our first time driving on the opposite side of the road. We were on the road to Gearannan Blackhouse Village when we came upon this shepherd moving his sheep to another pasture.

Since humor is the best medicine and we could all use some comedic relief in our current times, I’m sharing never before seen footage of my anxiety in action for your viewing pleasure.

Happy Friday!

I still get the giggles every time I watch this video. Especially when my mother laughs at my stressed out sigh.

I hope it brought a brought you a good chuckle or, at the minimum, a smile to your lips.

Stay safe and healthy out there! Find something that makes you laugh each day. Sending you all love and light! xx

Let your light shine!

  1. I grew up in Oxfordshire, and during lambing season, you never quite knew if you might get stuck on a back-road, waiting for sheep to be moved from field to field.

    1. I love seeing all the lambs. So cute!! I really didn’t mind being stuck. It was more that when my anxiety increases, I envision worst case scenarios, like a herd of sheep running and jumping on the hood as they race past, pounding dents in to rental car and then me having to pay for said rental car. lol.

    1. Luckily, at that point we were early into the day. If this had been the last stop before needing to make it to the airport, I definitely would have been more antsy.
      I can’t recall if there was a dog down in the field. There was a rogue lamb that kept running back into the pasture because it didn’t know what to do. It wasn’t a major road so I don’t think there’s was any rush and I think this is standard to the locals during lambing season (Jonathan grew up in England and commented that this is common).
      I don’t think we were there for more than 5 minutes. It was more about not knowing how long we’d be stuck. It was a single track road with nowhere to turn around and once the car came behind us there wasn’t an option to back up.
      Plus when my anxiety increases, I tend envision worst case scenarios, like a herd of sheep running and jumping on the hood as they race past, pounding dents in to rental car and then me having to pay for said rental car. lol.

      1. Oh, having the lambs or sheep jump on the car would be bad!

        I’m glad it all turned out well and the stop was only 5 minutes, and you’re able to recall it without anxiety.

    1. Yes, there were sheep EVERYWHERE when we visited too. It was lambing season and on our day trip to the Isle of Skye the tour guide would point out newborns as we drove along. So cute! 🙂
