This week has seemed to be mainly about storms – Dudley, Eunice and now Franklin. Thankfully, we missed the worst of it. It’s been wet and windy but we haven’t lost any more trees or had any damage (that we’ve noticed, so far).

Poor Euro had the trauma of a poultry crate falling on him this morning. No idea how it happened but the poultry crate is broken beyond repair. Thankfully, Euro is fine.

Started feeding the inlamb ewes today.

Dan got out with the chainsaw to cut up the Scots Pine that came down in Storm Arwen. Lots of wood!

Gary the landscaper was here today putting up a new picket fence round the back garden. There’s still a gate and a panel of trellis to go up but they’re in temporary place and the dogs can now go out without us worrying if they’re going to Carnoustie. Gary’s coming back in May to clear out the sunken garden – my birthday treat to myself.
