Hi George  :wave:

I used to be across the country from you, in Cumbria just north of Hadrian's Wall.  Been back down in the SW nearly 7 years now, never stopped missing summer the decade I was up there! 

What sort of sheep have you got? 
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

I know!  Impossible to believe isn't it!  But yes, October 12th 2016 I moved back down.  10 years all but 4 days since I moved up!
