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!!

Yesterday we toiled over the hills to the not so local pub through the sunshine hail and sleet [Fickle weather] and now i'm aching! how unfit am i ? a 5mile walk uphill and down hill no levelbits! so when we actually arrived in time for lunch my feet wouldnt work we throughly enjoyed it though and i slept like a log..

We finally got the concrete base in the exstension at last so building can commence, until we are needed on out 2 new projects.
How does everyone else manage to get there photos amongst their writing??? instead of a row at the top all suggestions gratefully recieved.


  1. how exciting - what will the new space be?

    As for photos - when you upload them, you get 4 options as to where to position them, no position, left, right and centred. Add all your text first. Click the radio button under the one you want, and then click and drag your image to a position within the text, it will wrap around it. The most versatile option is no position, cause then you can position the picture anywhere you chose. Have a play and preview it often, so you can get a feel for how everything is lining up.

    Hope that helps, and hope the legs are less achy today!

  2. The concrete base looks nice and tidy.

    I hope Zoe's tips help - I have terrible probs with this and it never seems to work out for me like it does in other people's blogs. I suppose practice is the only way.

  3. I love the feeling of having done a lot of walking and feeling satisfyingly tired.

    Good luck with the extension.

    Dry eye disease is an autoimmune disease which attacks the tear ducts and causes dry eyes. My 'tear veil' breaks down in 3 secs - most peoples is 11 sec. Plus the blotting stick in the eye test came back dry!!!! I put drops in all the time . . for some reason the dryness is worse at night.

  4. My photos turn up all over the place so I can't help you there.
    Oooh! I've just read Zoe's comment. I'll give it a try

  5. Yeah, fabulous progress on the extension! Well done that man (and you too I suspect).

  6. Nice big extension.... Bout the size of my ENTIRE house!!! Hahaha..... Haven't done any hill walking in years... Maybe I wouldn't be so porky if........

  7. Coo err it's a going to be a big un - you'll be able to hold a dance in there. Is it going to be a ballroom? Great progress - hope the rest goes smoothly.

  8. Blimey, you don't half pack it in!

  9. Hey mate......you are SO on for a break in a health spa!! Though I think I'd give the beautician a heart attack! Or an aching arm....

    And consider yourself duly tagged!

  10. the new space will be a kitchen living room thingy with steps coming down from my old kitchen which will be the hallway..upstairs 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms i think though i may change my mind..x
