Land Rover for sale

No, we're not dead, just busy! We've also decided to take something of a sabattical from the smallholding next year, to allow us to concentrate on other things - Rosemary endurance hosre-riding, me the Lisbon Marathon in April.

So, we're looking to sell our beloved Land Rover so we can buy something more practical for longer distances. (Not that it doesn't do long distances, just that it doesn't do them particularly quickly or cheaply!)

I've knocked up a page with details of the Landy together with a few photos - the rain was lashing down when I took them so they're not the best. If anyone is interested in what we think is a bargain (but then we would say that!) please contact us.

Bye, Kenny

Well, Kenny the Landrover has gone. We haven't bought anything else yet so we're managing with one car. We can manage just now but it gets harder as the nights get longer because one of us ends up doing all our chores in the dark.

Our car will also get ruined - we're not the most careful owners anyway, onsofar as the Sunday wash is a pipiedream - but muddy boots, horse rugs etc are the way to ruin. So something will have to be purchased pretty soon.

I'd loke a Fiesta van but they're like hen's teeth. Or a pick up - but I always get the impression that they have very hard lives.

Show Day

Well, those of you who keep up with our frighteningly active social diary will know that yesterday was the day of the Clackmannanshire Horticultural Society Annual Exhibition and Show. It was held in the Cochrane Hall in Alva which is a very attractive old hall, if somewhat off the beaten track.

This is the first time we've ben involved. Dan's been helping the Committee buy some IT equipment and set up some software to manage the show entries. Since entries are taken on the Friday before the show, from 7pm to 10pm and from 7am on the Saturday morning, it's been a long weekend for him. (He also ran the City of Stirling 10k road race this morning and has now gone to Tesco. What a guy!)
