I am hoping once this new website is complete that I will be able to offer some insight ona fairly regular basis. Simple musings, thoughts to share, a funny story, or perhaps a picture of someone doing something silly.

This will be my first entry to gab about our new site and what we have planned for the farm. For those of you who know me, you'll get how huge this is for me. For those of you who don't, well, you're about to find out!
I have always wanted to live on a farm, as far back as I can remember. I recall asking - no, begging - my parents for a horse. 'It can live in the back yard, mummy' or, 'it can stay in the basement, I'll feed it, I promise'. Always a fascination with ...Read Full Post »
