So here are a couple of twenty year old photos of me. I know, shocking. Question is, why did I hate the way I looked back then? I am by no means over the hill but oh what I would give to look like that again. If I could go back in time and give... Continue Reading →

My Father

I think I last posted here over a year ago. I wanted to let you know the reason for my absence. Last July, two weeks before the birth of our beautiful second son, my wonderful Father passed away. It was a tremendous loss for my family, he was without question, the best Father and Grandfather... Continue Reading →

I’m back!

I don't know if any of you noticed but I've had rather a long rest from my blog. It wasn't intentional, it just sort of happened. I must admit though, I've enjoyed the break! So my last post was November 2018. Well since then we've had Christmas which was a lot of fun. We opened... Continue Reading →


Hello, friends! Gosh, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to write any posts. We have been so busy! On the fifth of this month we went to our local bonfire display.  On the eleventh of this month my dear dad turned 83 which is incredible as three years ago we really didn't think...

Hello, sheep! I’ve missed you. Have you missed me, too? "No? Oh, ok." "So anyway how've you been?" "Wait, where are you going?" Huh, obviously Ovines don't get sentimental.... Oh and technically, they’re not sheep, they’re tups. I stand corrected. I love when they come to stay with us. Not everyone is so pleased to... Continue Reading →

The Flawesome Award

Seventeen years ago, Kate from Katedaysaweek challenged me to tackle the "Flawesome award". Ok, so it wasn't quite seventeen years but it was a while ago. I had to apologise to Kate and explain that I wasn't ignoring her invitation, I just couldn't work out how to change my flaws in to strengths but then... Continue Reading →

Windswept Horses

We've had quite a lot of rain recently, it's pay-back for the uncharacteristically long, hot summer that we had this year. Today for a change, it isn't raining but it is windy...wowzers is it windy.   "Rolo, help me straighten my tail" "Who said that...I can't see a thing" "The wind is messing up my...
