We moved into The Lodge a year ago and have had many adventures since then!! I keep friends and family entertained with stories of semi rural life (lots of space, no neighbours and we don't have a Tesco on our doorstep!!) We share our home with 3 crazy cats (George, Henry and Gracie) and our hens (Ethel, Fluffy and Lulu). Our dream is to become as self sufficient as possible, save money and help the environment that little bit!! I hope that this blog entertains and inspires!!

Well Spring has definitely arrived. We celebrated the arrival of the lambs next door with a BBQ and lashings of ginger beer (alcoholic of course)!! I really want one as a pet, but Stu reckons the farmer wouldn't take kindly to me hopping over the fence and pinching one!! Also after much deliberation, the hens are now free range. We have overcome our worries ( foxes, cats, will they run away, never to return?!!) and the girls are much happier for it. As from yesterday , 3 eggs a day!! Hopefully the start of my produce for my honesty box!!
