Monday 20th March
So toady is the vernal equinox – day and night of equal length. Hopefully, we’ll see the grass start to come away now.
Jane was here to trim Bug’s feet; the grass may already be coming away, so he’s on restricted access now, poor boy.
Ace’s increased feed seems to be working and he’s a bit less ribby.
Tuesday 21st March
I had tooth extracted this morning. Dentist told me to have a restful day, so I did.
Actually, I don’t feel all that chipper so having a very early night. The extraction site isn’t sore, but the rest of my body is.
Wednesday 22nd March
Apart from keeping a doctor’s appointment, I’ve spent the day in bed. Don’t know if it’s a reaction to the anaesthetic or what, but I feel terribly flu-like.
Bryn and a variety of cats kept me company.
Thursday 23rd March
Feeling better today.
Trip to the skip with a pretty full livestock trailer from rubbish from the work in the studio; once emptied, it was down to Stirling to pick up a table that we bought off Gumtree for the studio.
After lunch it was up to Brechin to pick up the flat trailer and home via Harbro to pick up a tonne of layer pellets, some beet pulp pellets and a lick for the cows.
Knackered – I find driving pretty stressful.
Friday 24th March
Dan took a half day to help Paul with the studio. The reclaimed wood for the walls and the floor was delivered this morning.
I weeded in the fruit garden – if there was a market for ground elder, we’d be millionaires. Nearly done.
Dan’s spread a good mulch of manure.
Saturday 25th March
Wow, spring has sprung! What a glorious day!
Finally finished weeding the fruit garden (well, half of it).
Sunday 26th March
Another beautiful day for Dan’s birthday! He’s been cleaning floorboards.
Stunning sunset tonight.
