Thank goodness for Jack FM! I do not usually listen to music in the car but I do have a few favourite CDs which I play when in a good mood - Neil Diamond is the latest as I can sing Sweet Caroline very loudly and very out of tune. However, Sam tuned me into Jack FM and I find it very, very funny so it has been a humorous day despite everything. In fact I was laughing so much over -
It's hard to know what to make of the Liberal Democrats at the moment - you just can't tell who's in the driving seat.
that I didn't notice at first I had an exhaust problem. I am now blowing like a crazy thing and only capable of 20mph. Carl is out there fixing that with one hand whilst dealing with a 'poo problem' with the other - not a personal poo problem, I hasten to add, but a problem with the pump that pumps our sewage and out neighbours into the main drains.

I have a picture of her but it is on my phone and I don't know how to get it off so that will have to go on another blog.
I got a little panicked this afternoon when snow started to fall. There was none laying in the village but it was on the hill although it seems to have stopped now so I think that will be okay. Dude was very restless and I could not work out why until I noticed the hunt on the other side of the hill. Not a good photo as every one is filthy.
The hounds were charging around and then I saw the fox walking, not a care in the world, along the Drove. I haven't seen a fox for ages - I think the combination of electric fences and alpacas put them off!
A better penning solution! - After a long "family illness" and a subsequent reduction of our herd, I am back to report a more recent enhancement to Easter-Wood. One of the problems we ...
