Today I have been mostly fetching a 14foot gate on a 7 foot trailer from 25 miles away. I have also been mostly milking one of our new goats.

Planting stuff out in the garden which should have gone out a couple of weeks ago.  And weeding....endless weeding  :garden: 

 I couldn't do anything near the house for the racket the builders make - they're lovely, but using a jack hammer thing to get the old mortar out from between the stones of the walls is bound to be a bit rowdy.....and the radio loud enough to compete  :tired:

spent the day mourning for my second lot of peas and thinking far too much about how I am going to dedicate the remainder  of my life to the removal of every pigeon on the planet.
If you cant beat 'em then at least bugger 'em about a bit. :innocent:

Today...like any other day
 I have moved chicks around and cleaned out poultry coops. Greased up the hay bob ready for whenever we get a weather window of about 5 days.
Dispatched 2 Welsh Black fowl males that were ready for the freezer.


Going out for lunch next to the golf club.
Traditional Utility Breed Hatching Eggs sent next day delivery. Pure bred Llyen Sheep.
