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 PEA-ceful night...

HMMMmmmm back inside now after a peaceful night in "le petite pois"..No snoring man . just an owl ,and something rubbing against the side in the early hours ,i didnt look! i just hid under the quilt, sasha who i'd took for company didn't twitch a whisker. It got windy early on and it took me some time, to realise what the tapping and knocking was??? and strange scrapings!!! and then i realised it was the rowan berries falling and rolling off the roof duuuuu so much for a peaceful night..I'd dug out one of my Elizabeth Gouge novels The White Witch....Shes a lovely writer.............................The moon i think contributed to my restlessness , it's light keeping me awake... And then once looking out i was captivated by the beauty of the strange landscape and how everything was changed just by being seen under a different light,,Our pond dull and green during the day, was a disc of silver!! and i itched to have a camera to capture it, The apples on the tree where turned into magical fruit and the trees into graceful beings ..Whats the song with the line" you fill up my senses like a night in a forest" Well i feel a bit like that.....I'll be there again tonight.xx

  5. What you need is Quies wax ear plugs - they are wonderful . . . I have used them ever since we lived near a horrible noisy pub. I have very sensitive hearing and wake up easily - but these wax life savers mean I sleep through most things now.

  6. ANNIES SONG BY JON DENVER the best song in the world
    You fill up my senses
    Like a night in a forest
    Like a mountain in springtime
    Like a walk in the rain
    Like a storm in the desert
    Like a sleepy blue ocean
    You fill up my senses
    Come fill me again
    Come let me love you
    Let me give my life to you
    Let me drown in your laughter
    Let me die in your arms
    Let lay down beside you
    Let me always be with you
    Come let me love you
    Come love me again

    Let me always be with you
    Come let me love you
    Come love me again

  8. yes, a beautiful song indeed!
    Bodran, I lust after Le Petit Pois!! I've told the Great Dane about it and said that something like it would be just the thing here - he thinks I'm not serious, but I mean it!

  9. Up in my attic bedroom I have a view over the garden down to the Yew tree that sits majestically in the middle of the lawn and I can gaze and gaze at it in the night when the moon is out and I never get tired of it - ah the life of an insomniac!
    PS. You read me far too well! No sympathy whatsoever with the meter man but in the interests of community relations I really was going to apologise....(crossed fingers) HONEST !!!!

  10. The thought of uninterrupted reading is very tempting, darn't start a new book, until term starts, no point, it'll be chaos for the next few days
