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 .............

I'm sat here eating fish&chips and drinking red wine yummy,,,
some bl...dy walkers arrived down the hill all dressed up in strappy sandals and slacks and sat on the breeze blocks by the extension and proceeded to talk really loudly and i'm sat 20ft away, i acknowledged them thinking they'd move on but they sat for 20 flippin mins with the dogs going berserk how bloody pig ignorant!! i was tempted to get my catapult out, then out comes the culprit a republication of "pub walks" If i got hold of the bloody writer i.d kill'em..they should put a country etiqette in big letters at the front........There i've had my rant all's back to normal now.....
What can i say what have i done today!!sh.. just remembered i emptied my ward robe this morning ,it needs sorting so i can find some different clothes instead of just the ones at the front, the pile must be 5ft high half the stuff no longer fits and the other half seems to be working clothes overwashed and torn!! i really really dont want this job now maybe i'll just push it off the bed onto the floor and do it tomorrow....I've planted ,I've installed to more water tanks,I've chased monty around the field whhhoooping just because i wanted to!! and i've cleared alge out of the pond and discovered we've got a fish!! it must have come in as an egg on the weed ?? pretty amazing really..saw two big toads...and i lay on my back on the grass looking up at the blue sky through the branches and new leaves of an oak.......xxoo


  1. Good news about the Toads. In France we had one that used to live under the lip of the sill of the patio doors. When it got dark he used to climb up onto the step and sit looking in at us. Toady

  2. Just realized that you are here on the site - it's good to be able to read your blogs again. I look forward to hearing about all the latest - enjoyed your busy afternoon!

  3. Eh lass I am so glad I found you!! I wish people had AKA next to thier names, Ive lost eden somewhere as well. I used to do amongst other things pub walking guides and spent years persuading them NOT to do one on the area I lived in!! Keep them away from teh country I say!! I was all for innner city walking guides, plenty of pubs no one to annoy!!If I knew how to link to your blog I would !

  4. Welcome home - grockles hah I spit on them Ptooooey! Still the rest of the day sounded ok.

  5. We have the same trouble with walkers - we have a path right through our farmyard so people think the whole yard is theirs to shout and let their dogs run free -god help them if one of the dogs poos on my lawn let me tell you. They pick my daffs, and take apples from the orchard. I dont know how you stop them. I have stopped ranting now - and so glad you are with us at last.
