This week it's catch up time.I mean i didnt even blog about the Girls visit did i !! Lax or what !!
Well it was brilliant and really well coordinated by Elisabethm who did the ferrying about. Star.
I was a silly twitchy bag of nerves WHY??
No idea !! Cept they where coming to Bodran. Yes my house that last saw a duster 3 monthes before... And a garden that to my eye resembles an explosion of dog turds and builder bags..
Then they were here . It was lovely, kittyb and Lawyerlady 2 brand new people for me to meet and as equally brilliant as any i've met before....
They loved my shop. And Colon bless him with the help of Nell gave me the afternoon off to go play.. Colon Looking enviously at the glut of cakes that had arrived at the shop with them, leave the shop with us. Ha
Lunch out at a mad customers pub..
Then onwards to my place.
We arrived in convoy in time to see a disgruntled sheep legging it up the drive>>>
Standing in my yard and looking up the path towards the house i could see a silver and pink mess !! WHAT THE ?? Whats happened to my MOP BUCKET !?? by then we are all stood there looking , well they are looking at me i'm looking at the bucket . Then jakes head pops out of the house "oh it's you" Whats happened to the bucket ?? i ask " A sheep fell off the roof and landed in it" he'd been watching telly and heard the scrambling and sliding then a sheep dropped past the window and landed on the bucket..........................You couldn't make it up could you.........
This morning on my way to work i saw the hounds from the local kennels out being excercised about 40 of them trotting along the road as merry as ?? dogs getting exercised . And the huntsman and his helper riding along on bikes beside them, What control , it's amazing and it was lovely to see on a misty autumn morning it felt like i'd slipped back to a quieter time..
We've got an amazing array of mushrooms popping up this year far more than normal so i've been out with the camera taking photos so i can identify them.. Is there such a fungus as "dead mans fingers" if so i think we've got them ...
Monty as managed to remain in his field since his starvation stint.
And I have fitted a wood burning stove while cols been away it's brilliant and done in a day instead of the 4 years it took him to connect the last one.. One thing was missing though a chimney pot. The smoke was going up the one flue and down the next ! so brilliant idea i've just the thing !! My rhubarb strainer !! so it's up there a bit fatter than a normal pot but very pretty and doing the job perfectly ............
