Title: Hello from Sandy!!
Post by: happygolucky on November 13, 2012, 05:29:11 pm
Thanks for all the encouragement,    :eyelashes:  I have been reading posts mpst days since I left but never wanted or dared to post anything, I see a few new people on here and a few old ones gone......A lot of people have been in contact with me either via personal messages of Face Book, I am still doing the same old stuff, B&B and hens and dogs but now have only 4 hens, I downsized just ready to move as we are up for sale, its one of those strange decisions, we make an income from the B&B, love where it is and the house, we did have an offer with clauses but not sure whats happened to that.....lots of houses we can afford have land, some I love are too far from public transport etc and some not suitable for chickens, so, I would re join at some stage just to ask advice and offer what I can.  My dogs are starting to get some gun dog training and I have joined beaters and pickers up, some of the last litter we had have gone off far afield to become gun dogs on country estates, I am so proud of the pups but no more from that bitch now, she is just a beloved pet.  My 2nd daughter has now emigrated to Australia and just happens to now own a smallholding, her husband works for a farmer so they also help on the farm, strange how things pan out but farming is in her blood, cousins and her dad were farmers....anyway, still very happy, very well but truly missed you all, that much I started arguing with myself  :excited:

I am happy and very well and a lot fatter than I should be,,,,thats because I eat too much and nothing else, We do need to sell up as we cannot get a break together, this house is too big to get some one else to look after, a week of extra heat would cost a bomb, when no one is here the heat is off and its very cold but when guests are in we turn it up,,,,,,I so want to visit Austrailia especialy now all my grandchildren are there and 2 of my 3 daughters...so we decided to downsize to a tiny place some where, could actualy be anywhere but my feet seem stuck in Scotland, I even love the weather, my husband gets a lot of work now in Edinburgh and Dundee but I think there is also lots in the highlands, what I really would love would be a cottage near a village not too far from a train station but in the highlands, seen loads we can afford but only if we sell!!
Nice to be welcomed back into the pack, people have said before, other forums are no where near as good, I use FB a lot to keep in touch,,,and now Face time,,, I missed you RUSTY, you are so much like my brother and he sends me 2 E Mails a day telling me similar stuff that you do, you could be related  :wave:
