The good stuff:
We have some new additions to our clan:
Baby Thomas – son of Ali & Burtie. A beautiful little boy, delivered at home and doing well. He arrived later than expected but made his appearance just before the end of August
The Twins Leah & Sam – delivered very recently to our youngest son they are perfect, tiny bundles. They are still in hospital where they need to gain weight before they are allowed home.
The sad news
We lost our Bertie dog after some years of battling with pancreatitis, blindness (cured by an operation) and ongoing diabetes poor Bertie finally went to the rabbit filled field in the sky.
We have a list of farmers markets and events we will be attending. I am going to change one of our pages to reflect a list sould anybody be around to come and say hello to us. We often put out samples if anyone fancied a taste of our goods as well.
There have been some big changes here which are very much a work in progress. We are occupying the garden room and the caravan whilst the work is happening around us. The old extension has gone and has been replaced with the newer, larger version. We have a roof and exterior walls but now are awaiting windows and doors to make it water tight before the colder weather comes.
The field – now known as the marsh!
We put in a grant application some time ago and were initially turned down. We have recently heard that they are opening up the process to the ‘next level’ down applicants and they have prepared a report about our small holding – which spends most of it’s time as a boggy holding. So now we wait and see if we are successful.
