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!!

seven things

Well here goes!
  1. Colon calls me Arf.
  2. We've got 7 properties.
  3. I give my tenants hell [not really].
  4. I've been self employed since i was 19yrs old as a market trader amongst other things.
  5. I bought my first house when i was 18 a bungalow in criminal bay.
  6. I,ve never been abroad or flown.
  7. I've never climbed Snowdon!!!! shhhhhhh


  1. You've never climbed Snowdon! Me neither.
    Fancy having worked for yourself for so long - I never have. Different lives eh?

  2. I got half way up Snowdon once and then the mist came down and so did I.

    LOVE working for myself - will never let anyone employ, or boss me around again.

    Why ARF?

    Berlimey seven properties . . .lots of work.

    Why have you never been abroad - asked out of interest . . not judgement . . .

  3. Always been to busy to go abroad and always had something more important to spend money on , i just make do with spontanious jaunts around this country, i've still not seen it all.. Plus i don't want to fly or go through a tunnel or go on a boat so i'm stuck really...
    ARF as in half a brain !! cheeky *&^%^ thank god in WALES people think he's saying HAF Which means summer.xx

  4. I've never climbed Snowdon either... although it is on my list of things to do. Who knows how long it will take me as I'll most likely keep stopping to take photos!

  5. I really do admire your independent mind and can do attitude, Bodran. You are quite an amazing lady with so many accomplishments, who needs Snowdon?

  6. Yeah, stuff Snowdon (too many tourists). I've done Moel Siabod and that was good enough (smug).
    Arf arf!

  7. Hi Bod, thanks for popping over to mine, so here I am at yours. Got here at last! See that Zoe answered your photo question. As for music - sorry if Mr Robbie Williams distracted you - I know what you mean though - distracts me too! If you don't want to listen, turn down the volume knob on your computer speakers,or go to the green playlist towards the bottom of the right hand side (scroll down) and you can click the pause button, just like a CD/DVD/video, or click on another less distracting song if you don't like what's playing! Sorry too if my post confused you! - I read it back and it confused me too!

    Loved reading your 7 things - some of them put me to shame. Sometimes I feel I know 'abroad' better than my own country...there are so many beautiful places still to discover here.

    Extension will be fab - but building is a nightmare. Hang on in there.
