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!!

Sunshine but for how long??

OK i know i look stupid but who cares! Moo is obviously worried and the other dogs have legged it..
Seeing as the weather as been so bad i've delegated today to painting the kitchen and no sooner have i emptied the bookshelves! and started to paint and the flippin sun comes out! sod's law, never mind i quickly donned my new wellies and pranced about, but thought i'd best stop or sbs will drown me if it starts to rain again..
J was 19 yrs old yesterday the same age i was when i met colon, it seems only the blink of an eye where as the time gone ? And i hope the next 19 don't go as fast..
The harness racing was cancelled in the village yesterday because of the weather and the llaneffydd show, I think we are all truly fed up now arnt we and the summer is flying by.
Well i'm going outside to make the most of it and do a bit more tidying for next sundays open day...then back inside to finish what i've started..xx


  1. I know what you mean about being 19 and life racing past.... Em is 19 next month... and I was 19 when I got married to Hub1 (not recommended). I think time goes faster and faster don't you? I HATE not having any summer.

  2. I do like the wellies! And I also love that dog. If you're in Northumberland some time and fancy doing a bit of gardening, do pop in!! There's no sunshine but the rain has stopped and Amy's at last able to get outside for some much needed fresh air.

  3. I love your wellies too!! We have sunshine here today, but it's cold! My daughter is actually wrapped in a blanket!

    We've been far luckier than much of the country with our weather - but it's not too much of a consolation. The forecast has been so bad, every time we see a black cloud we think we're about to get flooded! We certainly daren't venture out too far! Can't remember the last time the forecasters actually got it right!

  4. Love the wellies - got to get our pleasures where we can!

    There's a brief interlude between showers here. Not getting too excited. So sad for all those people not lucky enough to live on the side of a low mountain as we do and are flooded out.

  5. Time does wizz by the older you get doesn't it. Daughter is 20 in two weeks time - cerikey . . .she lives with her boyfriend whom we really like . . been out in my plain purple wellies squirting Skin So Soft on my sensitive sheep . . .thought of you and your flowery wellies . .

  6. It has at last been lovely here today, I have walked ridden bathed and blogged and now I am going to do a bit of tidying up. I can't beleive that my little girl is now 30 it seems like only yesterday she was unable to reach to first shelf of my dresser to put her rosettes up. Treasure each moment and I love the wellies.

  7. You look like you are about to burst into some Highland dancing, I do hope it wasn't a 'rain' dance so you could get on with the painting!!

  8. Sorry haven't got time to read at mo just to let you knowThomas's comments do get through but I moderate them first I tried to do the same with Alec but it doesn't seem to have worked. Thank you for commenting on both of them.

  9. My eldest is 14 tomorrow. Where does the time go? I know it is corny, but it seems so true at present.

    I love your wellies...I want some!

    warm wishes

  10. Mine turned 20 this past January...just yesterday she was a baby...time does fly when we're not looking.

  11. Cool wellies. I never believed people when they said time speeds up when you get older - now I do! I can't bear not having a summer.

  12. Just made time to read through all your tree and derelict house blogs.........dont know what it is about both that never fail to capture imagination.......have lived in a few derelict houses in the past........now I just live in a half-built one.......

    Beautiful pictures!

  13. Good job I never saw that picture before coz it sure looks like the beginning of a rain dance to me..and I've told you about doing them...we are not amused! Wots all this about new balls ..are they the green things on that picture? Loved those chime thingys...have got a box of old cutlery here somewhere if you need some more. I see from a comment somewhere you don't fly....nor me....shall we do a convoy down to Sally's in the most wrecked vehicles we can find? Our Jeep would be great ...but we've had to turn him off...poor old Trumpton ..R.I.P looking for a replacement now! Was that a basketry course you were organising...always wanted a go at that ...think it might suit me better than embroidery!
