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.
