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!!

Dear heavens above it's ages since i blogged!!
It's really hard isn't it when you've not done it for a while just how hard it is to get going.
We have been really busy i'm working most days [i still have to turn in even if there are no customers in town]..
Last week i went to collect some ebay buys From Blackpool..
A Mangle and a big agricultural scale etcetcetc. I'm new to towing so it was quite an adventure thank gawd i didn't need to reverse.
We did the tourist bit ate at a "greasy jo's" looked around the swag shops, and paid a visit to the "rock shop" . It very nearly made me blush, the shapes rock comes in these days!
It's the "Woodfest" in 2 weeks and i'm having an implement stall as well as clothes hopefully it will boost my takings . If not they will look good in the garden.


  1. So good to see this post from you, Jo!

    It is difficult to find time for writing, with everything else that grabs away at our time.

    I am very glad that your towing adventure had a calm ending. Best wishes with Woodfest! Hoping that you will be giving happy customers lessons in how to tow!


  2. Hello, I was thinking about you this morning as I went off for a meeting in Llangollen and wondering if I had time to come back through Denbigh, answer, no, meeting overran madly. Well done you on the towing. I know how to in theory but am very good at getting Ian to do it instead. Hope you are having a lovely sunny day!

  3. Is that one of your new chickens getting some sun cream?

    Remind me when Woodfest is - sounds like a good day out.

  4. I think I've seen it all now - a chicken getting sun cream! I know there's probably a very good reason but it does seem funny! There again a sunburnt chook wouldn't be ...we've just had Wierd & Wonderful Wood here which I lvoe hope you have a great tiem at your Woodfest!

  5. I love the chicken and sun cream picture. I used to do the same to a horse's nose... Nice to see a blog from you and good luck with Woodfest!
