Woke up this morning and looked out of bedroom window - cows had broken through electric fencing and raided our compost heap (I do not mind that) and eaten most of our apple tree! We quickly erected some green fencing and informed farmer that cows might have tummy aches through eating hot compost!
As I have called my blog 'Rural Villager' and I appreciate countryside living - I must take what comes! Actually it is the very windy weather that is getting Husband and I down at the moment - our garden (now almost two years old) is suffering and young plants are curling their leaves up at the icy blasts!
I have been asked to do this meme by Lane's Write - so here goes:
What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was a secretary working from home to a chartered surveyor who also worked at his home in a garden shed - I typed many long survey reports. Hobbling around on the wonky knees before they were made even wonkier with replacement knees. Dodger, our black labrador, was keepng Husband fit. We also kept about 20 hens, most of which were rare breeds.
