Cleared the sweetcorn and pumpkin patch ready for my native plant flower bed and found another pumpkin hidden in the gap behind the greenhouse. Planted some Fritillary bulbs, staked the purple sprouting broccoli again! (it keeps pushing the stakes over), removed all the fox poo. The husband bought himself a chainsaw chopped a load of logs and now appears to be making a massive vat of stock.

Woke up in the middle of a forest at 06:30, stinking of woodsmoke, and prayed for a lie-in. Phoned work, "Yes, please come in, things aren't going too well here".

Drove across the misty valley as the sun rose. Beautiful.

True, things not too good at work. 19:20 now, and I'm still here. Hopefully I've got it fixed now, because if I can't get the machine to run this time, it's going to be a very long night. Phoned home - my dinner is already in the dog apparently, so I needn't stress  ::)

Apart from the routine stuff, brushed down, swept out and vacuumed (truly) the byre in preparation for the calves coming. Dan boarded up the gap into the feed store and cut of the neck chains; wormed Niamh and Nova; trimmed Leo and Dickie's feet; made bacon sandwiches for lunch; took Bugsy out on longreins (little star :horse:) ; looked at the sunken garden and wondered what the hell we're going to do with it; looked at the vegetable garden and wondered what the hell we're going to do with it; looked at the fruit garden ....

duck poo delt with here as well today, Sandy :&> :&> :&> :&>
took OH's car away to be fixed, made a pot of steamed apple (lot of peeling  :P) and supervised my eldest cooking our dinner, sweet and sour pork :yum:, watched the x-factor (I'll miss the Divas) and now it's bedtime, hoping I'll have a better night than last (part spent on the sofa) :wave: :wave: :&>

So far this day has proven to be very unproductive. I did manage to grill some rib eye steaks for the hubby and myself but I've yet to clean the kitchen :P I think I'll go swimming instead ;D

Emptied the chemical toilet, picked poo in the pony field, cleaned the cat's litter tray, cleaned out the hens (see a pattern here?), went to the local leisure centre for a wonderful shower then put all my dirty clothes in the washing machine. Changed the bed - washed, dried and back on. It's been a lovely day here.

Then researched cows  ;) :cow: ready for Thursday.

Us lot deal with a lot of *it!! by the looks of it, I took some bags of used chicken bedding to tip only to think how much that smell stays with you, then I saw some all down my leg!!!!! I am off to do the yard now, good old ben has his male we wee and it runs down from where he choses for his latrine right past the back door in a lovely little river, Bless. Today I may just nip out to see what charity shops have to offer !!!!!! my idea of a good trip out lately! (must change my pooooey trousers first!)

 

Is there something about today?
