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!!

Mad dogs and wwoofers!

Well here i am 2 dogs better off the house smelling of detol and vosene, and i'm jiggered.. i'm so used to just opening the door and letting them go but having to watch the grey who is a marker every chair every corner as been sprinkled!! and duly disinfected, Both washed in Anti dandruff shampoo and groomed so lots of wet towels and jeans and me in need of a bath....The greyhound is being called Bryn he seems to respond to it so it must sound near enough like his own name! As for Wally ?? for now when we bathed him you can see he is supposed to be a huge dog big bones! but he is just a skeleton and he as very little appetite lively enough though and very gentle, when i had a minutes piece this morning i sat down with a sigh and he sat opposite at eye level quite unnerving looked directly in my eyes and lifted his paw My gawd a lurcher thats trained and he his he sits, lies down and crys to go out, i'm just scared he won't come back if i let him loose.. He's missing somebody bless....

This morning Monty changed his routine and went to visit my neighbours {no pun intended in Neighbours] up hill why does he always go up hill!! my poor legs..Meanwhile there had been a tesco delivery to my house and pearl who speaks no english had signed for it and put it all away!!
The only thing was it wasnt mine ooop's it was the neighbours!
I'll be glad to get the house back to myself i always feel constricted when people stay, and feel i should be out there with them, but theres not enough to do in jan unless the weathers good and we have been blessed with a few good days and made the most of them except sunday glorious day and she stayed in bed because it was sunday! argghh...

The second day she was here [giggleing to myself] At teatime we had done a roast dinner, and i saw here pick up the gravy boat and drink from it! ! what!! No no i said and showed her how to pour the gravy on her potatoes! Well bloody hell it wasnt gravy it was black tea! she'd used the jug as a cup she still ate all her spuds though, i think she thought i was mad....

Cleaning tip's that's a laugh!

Well What can i say the only tip i have is the one i live in !
Naa it's not that bad honest.
Well if it can be hoovered i hoover it the inside of the Stanley especially and the ceiling [i've been known to mop the ceiling but we won't go there!
If my windows are dirty or misted double gazing, i stick up Net's until i'm in the mood to sort properly!
An old toothbrush to bleach around my window frames a bit anal i know but they get black mould and i'm allergic to it...
Best tip move house and start again!
Ahh news papers for making your windows shiny! not that i do it at home but the shop front always looked good......
And Now i'm going to tag Milla cos shes brill with a dyson. And elizabeth m and mountaineer, and country craft angel.. he he

Can't think of a title !!!


Well done Ben!!

WEll you had my day in the life a perfectly ordinery day in Bodrainia!!

Where work, school, The unresolved bullying issue, and my daughters infatuation with the local Druggy, My dads on going comparisons of me and other people {i'm always found lacking}.... and my darling bruv who hasnt been in touch since before christmas when i dropped off their present's [does his girlfriend imagine a slight???] And a needy friend who needs constant reassurance, and sadly to say i'm trying my hardest to avoid her, but feeling guilty because of it!! Arghhhhh I'm as twisted as one of my forks trying to step lightly around other people........

But meanwhile Lifes good ,I Never Ever thought i'd say this but it's to wet up here i feel like the house is going to slide down the hill...Swoooosh............
We got the conservatory that we took down last week, here to wait years to be rebuilt........

I played up and down the lane today on the new scooter with the dogs chasing me Amazingly Me and Ben won!! Berludy cold though...And giving the neighbours more reason to look askance at me!!! Do i Bloody Care! !! do i Eck!!!

I've also discovered the addiction of E Bay Why did no one warn me! I'm a solar shower! a pewter bowl and a Steeleye span LP !!! Better off!!!!
I've Missed out on countless vintage caravans thank gawd, And a delicious Arts &Crafts opal ring , And a gypsy caravan holiday in suffolk...Oh and the second scooter i won that!

Belly dancing last night always a laugh ,Though the teacher takes herself a bit to seriously!! Just cos shes got a waist!! and knows the steps!!

I'm really looking forward to meeting up on friday at mountaineers i'll take the camera and do some photos if thats ok....
Thats enough for today, i'll post the trail of destruction Monty as left in his trail this week I warn you there'll be lots of %&*^$" in it..
