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!!

Just a quick one!

Good evening everyone, thought i'd blog before i chill...
The young wwoofer left today she was a lovely girl and a big help .. so today after dropping her off at the coach, we had a girly day out along with colon bless him, you could see his eyes glazing over as we entered yet another clothes shop asked his opinion ! then ignored it! well he should know better than to go shopping with 3 girls..I had a stroke of luck i went to town last week with sorrel [she passed her theory test] and i saw a blue quilt in a charity shop, it was really nice but £7 seemed a bit steep so i left it, later in the day i said to s let's collect it on the way home i really want it... but we forgot! so today i went back and it was still there i went all hot! it'd been reduced to £4 see destiny i was meant to have it, i took it to the till and she said you can have that for£2 bllooooomin ek! it felt like christmas,it's in the washer now and it's the most perfect blue....
I've had a day of from ragwort but my hands and arms are so sore and i'll have to continue tomorrow, but i will win..
Pili palas in the village for a month so i'll give her a hand setting up her page and blogging ...then she can join in the fun,,,xxx
If any of you are interested in my mobiles i still do make some to sell privatly but mainly i supply shops...They are £15 and £2 p/p which is half the retail price to my purple coo mates..xx


  1. I used to have a windchime mobile thing like you make - dont know what happened to it - it was made with old forks.

    Where I live you'd never get a nice quilt for £2!

  2. I keep looking at windchimes in our local garden centre and there are some lovely ones. Do you make them to sell? Excuse my ignorance.

    I don't know why men go shopping with girlies anyway! Their opinion is so unimportant!!

  3. Hi Jo
    How great to find the quilt-it clearly had your name on it girl!

    Your poor hands-I am sure you will have some aloe/calendula or something equally suitable in your apocatherapy to ease the soreness.

    I was going to e-mail you about your wind chimes. I would like to order two please. They are SO beautiful and just what I was looking for and the other will make a lovely gift for someone...Will sort it as soon as I come back from Northumberland. But put me down for two sometime please.

    Take care

    warm wishes

  4. You were obviously meant to have that quilt. I get such a rush when I get a real bargain. BTW men go shopping with girlies so that they can carry everything, so you've got your hands free to have a good rummage. See they do have their uses. Toady
