What A Wild Day

After such a lovely day weather wise yesterday when I was going about outside chores without a jacket, today has just been wet wild and cold, that horrible drizzly rain with strong winds, apart from collecting in firewood and feeding animals it has been a day to stay indoors.
Most of the day i have spent down in the cabin, being ruthless with my stash, I have moved the units around and tables, and thrown out 4 recycling sacks of paper and card and packaging, just as well its dustbin day tomorrow, I have just been out and battled the weather taking the rubbish to the top of the drive.
The cabin is just about there now, tomorrow should see it all done.
I did put an order in today for Asparagus plants, seed potatoes and sweet potatoes, 
the veggies are all sorted now for this year.
I also got the old Rayburn advertised for sale.
That just about sums up today, just lots of indoor stuff.

  1. I need to be ruthless with my stash, I would have to live to 100 to use everything!

  2. Sounds like you got plenty done to me! I sometimes think we ask a lot of ourselves. Some people do far less than us smallholders without having animals to look after/feed/muck out etc. and the land to care for.

  4. Hi, just joined your blog. Reading your description in your heading, I could have been reading about myself - well up until I had to leave that lifestyle that is.
    I miss it terribly, so now will follow your adventures whilst dreaming of 'getting back to the land.
    I also love crafting.

  5. The weather has become extremely grotty, sounds like you've been busy. Apart from a small order of asparagus plants & a couple of packs of seed potatoes I think that will be me for this year.
