September 26th – Walking

We went for a lovely walk in the New Forest today. It is great to get out in the fresh air and take in our beautiful countryside. We were scheduled to visit the Brecon Beacons this weekend, but alas, Covid-19 put an end to that, so we took a little drive to Hampshire. It isContinue reading “September 26th – Walking”

September 18th – Another delivery??

Our friends from Amazon arrived again today, this time with a house for a hedgehog that has been roaming in the garden.

August 21st – Nosey neighbours….

Obviously not our lovely human neighbours, but our bovine friends in the back field. They are very inquisitive, watching me move various items from the cabin into Eric, the new workshop. The cabin is nearly empty now, and almost ready for a good clean and maybe a coat of paint. It’s been an emotional experience,Continue reading “August 21st – Nosey neighbours….”

August 14th – Snack time

I love this time of year because mother nature provides snacks for me whilst walking the 4 legged children, however, I need to be quick before they grab them before me…. The Flatties in particular are very fond of blackberries, and we always laugh at them sniffing the berries before carefully picking the ripe onesContinue reading “August 14th – Snack time”

July 27th – Double rainbow

The weather was a little unpredictable when we played golf this afternoon, and got caught by a shower or 2 but it could have been worse and we did get to experience a double rainbow.
