A farmers toast!

Let the wealthy and great, Roll in splendour and state, I envy them not i declare it, I eat my own lamb, My chickens and ham, I shear my own fleece and i wear it, I have lawns,I have bowers, I have fruits,I have flowers, The lark is my morning alarmer, So joyful boy's now, Here's god speed the plough, Long life and success to the farmer!!

A word from .............

HELLO EVERYONE!!...I've made it at last phewww it's been a slog but worth it! i'm here with my mates i hope your all here now , as mongoose joined us and zoe i hope so!!!

Well whats been going on here up on the hill, loads i've had a brilliant week the courses went well and the guests left as friends!! and i'm sure they'll be back, the fabulous weather helped and the copious ammounts of alcohol and food gave everything a rosy glow even the compost loo wasnt so daunting..
We had lots of help from teenagers!! [I've just deleted a load not teenagers i wish] because of google ,darn its curbed my gossiping...
The water situation is looking bad we've had no rain since march the 6th and the lush month of may is a little parched..
I'm hopefully getting a new retro caravan [yes another] it's turqouise and cream and looks like it's quilted it's gorgeous XXX the dilema is do i use it for touring? pulled behind the cream beetle or park it for folk to stay in???
I'll hold a competition to pick a name we have "le petite pois"...read the the small print though...The winner gets a weeks holiday ,but this may be changed at any moment dependng on my mood at the time,and if there are any jobs needing to be done then it will be a weeks work! !self catering !!!we may let you leave! we may not!! we may throw you off [especially if your an extreme bully who eats my chocolate and stays slim] or doesnt drink enough or drinks to much depending on the time of day.........lets forget that idea ehh...xxoo yippeeeeeee


  1. Lovely to have you here. Its a lovely site and well run and no white sofas, except my own. No voting, except in the elections, no rules and regs, well more or less. You will love it.

  2. Hurray -- good to see you ragrug. Can't wait to hear about the caravan. Eden.

  3. YEAY!!!!! Welcome back darling! Have missed you madly. How about The Broad Bean?
    Love to all at ??? Mountain....xxxx

  4. Soooo pleased you got here at last. The caravan sounds great. I name it pistachio and claim my weeks prize for the second week in September. Just kidding. Toady

  5. Toady if its on my mountain it'll need to ss's in pistachio and your welcome anytime!missed you all madly too,it was horrible being locked out, i'd never make a lurker. White sofa red wine oops..god its good to be here ..

  6. So glad you arrived in the end didn't like you sitting down in the valley in Little Diddling in the Mire, enjoy this complet mad house.

  7. You seemed so lonely on the other side, I was willing you to succeed and get on over here! Will give some thought to the name of your caravan - may even put my heart and soul into it - but is it a competition or a promotion? Or will you decide half way through?!!

  8. Great you're here! I name the caravan Firoza (as it's turquoise).

  9. yeah! you're here with us all. glad the courses have been going well. after my freebie intro to the hedgerow food course i would have to say how could they not? completely vacant head as far as the caravan goes. met elspeth today (another welsh blogger) and was telling her about your courses. may blog about it tomorrow.

  10. Hello, hello, from New York.
    It's not so bad over here, is it, once you actually get here.
    We had record rain in April, so May flowers can blood a while in splendor. Then we will worry about dryness.
    I am working way too much -- and feel some sort of revolution in the air.
    Look forward to more from the mountain.
