Blankets, inspecting the hay, roses, wild strawberries on the rockery, our lovely acer and a visit from a new friend. At last the sun has come back. It’s been a whole month, just after the departure of lovely OC since I had a moment to put pen to paper as it were. There has been … Continue reading June and into July…..

The sad passing of OC by Giz
Well. Today I am the bearer of the most saddest of sad news. OC, our favourite chicken, once named Other Chicken when Ginger (RIP) was still here, who became Only Chicken on her passing, moved on to pastures new last night.

So much for Not Lambing
Well, now, here’s a thing. The Storm family seem to have moved in with their attending winds and rain, hail and freezing chill. And then suddenly....a pair of twins in the field!! What the.........is what I thought. I tucked my pencil behind my ear and hurried up to interview whoever it was that had been … Continue reading So much for Not Lambing
February came and went……
Last week there were suitcases again but very small ones so we knew this absence would not be for long. These short goings away mean that Meg comes up with her person and we have fine walks with her, which is very nice for a change. Anyway, they returned and brought this Storm Freya with … Continue reading February came and went……

Not being one to dwell on the vicissitudes of the past, this weekend has finally been one that I can report on. I will just say that I think nothing of people who go away for two weeks, and then take to their beds for another week when they get home. No. It was not … Continue reading Post holiday action…….well, a bit of…
