Nkhosa Saga...

Ndidapeza mwayi mu 2020 wogula croft yakomweko eni ake atachoka pachilumbachi. Ndipo mu Okutobala gulu langa loyamba la nkhosa linafika. 10 Nkhosa zazikazi 10 za mtundu wa Hebridean zogulidwa ku khola la kumaloko. Tinataya mmodzi chifukwa cha matenda a bakiteriya adzidzidzi, zidapezeka kuti tidayenera kuwatemera ku mabakiteriya amtundu uwu koma sindinadziwe za izi, maphunziro akugwira ntchito. 9 otsalawo adalandira katemera!

Kuweta (kukweretsa nkhosa) nthawi zambiri kumayamba kumayambiriro kwa mwezi wa Novembala koma chifukwa chosowa kulumikizana, nkhosa yomwe ndimafuna kubwereka sinafike kotero mu Disembala/Januware idakokedwa ndi nkhosa yamphongo ya Vallais Blacknose yobwereka kwa mnzanga. Kenako nkhosazo zinkafufuzidwa m’nyengo ya masika koma mwatsoka ndi imodzi yokha yomwe inkafufuzidwa ngati ya nkhosa. Conco, ndinaganiza zogula nkhosa zazikazi zisanu zatsopano kuti ndizitha kudziŵa bwino zoŵeta ndi kukhala ndi ana a nkhosa. 

Patatsala milungu iwiri kuti ayambe kubereka tinapeza nkhosa yaikazi yatsopano (Rogue) itagwa pabwalo ndi chibayo komanso kuchepa kwa calcium. Tidayesetsa momwe tingathere, anali ndi maantibayotiki, calcium, glucose ndipo adakhala sabata imodzi m'khola lokhala ndi udzu wambiri, koma mwachiwonekere zinali zomuchulukira. Anachotsa mimbayo ndipo patapita masiku angapo anamwalira. Zinali zokhumudwitsa kwambiri koma tinali titachita chilichonse chomwe tingathe, chimodzi mwazinthu zomwe muyenera kuphunzira ndikupitilira. 

Pa 6 April, atangotsala pang'ono kufika ndinapita kukawaona ndipo Coco anaonekera ali ndi kamwana ka nkhosa kokongola! Ndinamutcha Clo (pambuyo pa liwu la Gaelic la nsalu). Anakhala mlungu umodzi m’khola limodzi ndi nkhosa zina zazikazi zoyembekezera chifukwa tinali ndi chipale chofeŵa chozizira kwambiri kwa masiku angapo! Nyengo itayamba kutentha, nkhosa zazikazi ndi Clo zinatuluka m’kabwalo kakang’ono ndipo pa 16 Epulo ndinayamba kuonerera pamene Badger akubala mwana wankhosa wokongola kwambiri yemwe ndinamutcha kuti Mhor (liwu la Chigriki lotanthauza lalikulu) Nyanga zake zazing’ono! Sindinakhulupirire kuti anali aakulu bwanji pamene anabadwa, n’zosadabwitsa kuti Badger wosauka anali kuvutika pamapeto pake! Clo, Mhori ndi nkhosa zamphongo zinabwerera m’munda pamodzi ndi zotsala zonse m’munda wapakati pamene udzu unali utayamba kumera. 

Patatha milungu iwiri pa 3 Meyi, nkhosa yanga yaikazi yoyambirira Leo, imodzi yokhayo yomwe idasanthula mwanawankhosa anali ndi mwanawankhosa wake koma mwatsoka sanapulumuke. Mwina anali asanabadwe kapena china chake chinachitika atabadwa koma kumawoneka ngati kubadwa kwabwinobwino komwe ndidangophonya ndi theka la ola kapena apo. Mukumva kuti ndinu olakwa kwambiri mumkhalidwewu - ndikanakhala ndi theka la ola m'mbuyomo, kodi zikanapulumuka? Koma simungadziwe zomwe zikadakhala ndikungoyenera kupita patsogolo. 

Nkhosa ziwiri zomaliza zakhala ndi ana, mochedwa kwambiri mu nyengo, zitatopa mozembera nkhosa yamphongo yakuda zitayikidwa pa madyedwe wamba. Amapasa awiri, mnyamata ndi mtsikana komanso mtsikana wabwino kwambiri. Mnyamatayo amaikidwa patebulo ndikupangidwa kukhala chiguduli, atsikana omwe ndikukonzekera kuswana kuyambira kamodzi kuti awone kuti ana awo amphongo adzakhala otani akamaponyedwa ku hebridean, pambuyo pake tidzawona. 

Ndasungira nkhosa zazikazi ziwiri za Gotland, ndi nkhosa yamphongo yomwe tinakonza kuti titole mu June, ndili wokondwa kwambiri kupeza mtundu uwu chifukwa uli ndi ubweya wabwino kwambiri.
