Smartphones…Rugged or what!

So true – I’ve yet to master not using the exclamation mark.  Good thing I didn’t make that one of my new years resolutions!   Once before I had a blogpost called ‘Show us your phone, luv.’   It was about how fragile some of these supposedly smart phones are. I may have mentioned that […]

Society? What is society anyway!

Firstly, I need to apologise for my absence recently.   Been a bit frazzled.  Lots of change.  Lots of coping.  Lots of…oh well, not lots of money. Nothing unusual there.  But I got tired.  Too tired to have a chat.  Far too tired to find the humour in the hardship.   Today is not about […]

A Walk – with a girl and a horse – at sunset.

Well, we’ve had some rain here, which is fantastic!  Has been so dry for so long.  And not a blade of grass to bless ourselves with going into winter 🙁   We’ve been doing the budget in, buying in hay.  We’ve got a great hay supplier – good heavy bales, and it sticks to the […]

Woodhenge

Wood and wood heating, it’s a treechange hot topic.   Here it is, last night at our house.  We got wood yesterday which was great!  We were very nearly out and not sure what day the delivery was going to be.   It was wet, and son didn’t think to bring some wood up onto […]
