One year (and a bit) on...

Finally, some time to myself when the stars have aligned and the broadband is working, the jobs are all done (or at least out of sight!) and the technology is all in the right place to sit down to and write. Its been over a year since my last post and I think that's the way my blogging goes - feast or famine. Sometimes I run out of things to post and sometimes I run out of time to post them but either way it feels nice to be back.

Its been a busy year, the buildings finished, the kids are growing too quickly and the garden has grown out of control. Here are a few of the highlights...

delivering Russian Giant Sunflowers to the Village Plant Fair,

hatching Hen Solo, our new addition to the flock,

my new shed...ta dah!!!
and making a start on landscaping the side of the house that has been a building site for the past 3 years...
this looked like this for approximately 4 days before BH realised the benefits of putting a liner down first and now needs redoing to tackle the weeds, but that's another story...
Just in case I'm tending towards a rose tinted view of our rural idyll lets be clear, there's also been a nasty brush with hogweed, a lot of rain, several bad backs and a longstanding battle with nettles that still rages on.
This autumn we're determined to finish the interior of the house, move a green house, plant a lot of bulbs and put a liner on that patio. There's also the matter of roof repairs to tackle - oh joy! Thats it for now but by the time I press post the list is sure to have grown....
