THINGS I SHALL MISS THE MOST ( PART ONE )

Apologies that this is last weeks blog delayed I could tell you how busy We are But you would struggle to believe me. Anyway onward firstly there is Things I shall Miss ( Part One ) followed by Auditioning for the Darwin awards 🙂 Confused google it..

As the clatter of the almost agricultural engine in “the Major” stuttered to a halt and the dark and the silence engulfed me . The peace was broken by an owl in the tree behind me exalting to another owl on yonder hill ” My hoot is better than your Hoot”! only to be told in no uncertain terms by the owl on yonder hill , I dont thinks so My “hoot is better than yours” and so it went on……. Only to be rudely interrupted by a couple of cockerels calling “nice hoot but can you this a doodle-do” ..

Its dark o clock when I arrive in the mornings now so when I arrive I put on my head lamp so I dont fall flat on my face, I aint pretty now so gravel rash is NOT a good look. as I turn the beam towards the barn I am greeted by two rows of iridescent eyes following every move i make. I dont speak Goat But I know they are Moaning That I Im feeding the Pig and and rabbits before them . Still the Shining Eyes follow my every move until I open the door to feed them , At which Point My Goaty friends are not remotely interested in me JUST the bucket of food in my hand. After the barn crew the Girls the Rabbits and Toby. I refill my buckets and head off down the hill feeding the older kids and the Wrecking Crew. all the poultry and when all is fed and happy I can get in to the Major and go to work.

Yes it does make the day a long one however if it were my choice I would still be doing it for some time. Martina has spent many a long hour up here during the time I am at work in all winds and weathers. The man from the Planning inspectorate HAS NO idea Hard work The Love The Sweat and the tears We have put into this adventure and we shall both miss it BUT now there is no way forward we would both like it over asap , It is not quite as easy as that sounds as we still have stock. and all the stuff we have bought overn the last few years Now has to be Sold. Which brings us nicley to this weeks blog intitled ,

Auditions For the Darwin Awards

One of the major drawbacks of having stuff for sale You dont have any say in who wants the stuff. SO YOU Have conversations like THIS:-

Hello You have a 2 meter foot bath for sale ?

Me: Yes I do

How Big is it ?

Me: What ?

……………………………………………………………………

Hello You have a Quad for sale…?

Me: Yes

How Much do you want?

Me: £500

But The advert says £200

Me: you read the Advert? So why ask

……………………………………………………………………………………..

Hi Mate You have a Quad for sale?

Me: Have you read the Advert?

Oh Yes Mate, How longs the MOT?

Me: Obviously You Didn’t.

……………………………………………………………………………………………….

hI Mate You have two Calf Feeders for sale £120 , How Much for them Both ?

Me: it is for them Both,

How Much for Just One mate

Me; Wanna Take a guess?

……………………………………………………………………..

The bandsaw you have for sale do you still have it?

Me: Yes Mate I do

is the blade with it ?

Me: No did you READ the advert?

How much without the Blade?

Me: It is priced without the blade , they are less than £20 from Axminster tools.

so you want 45 pounds for somthing I can buy new for £175 without the blade

Me:

And is if to piss me right off its less than a quater of what I have to advertise.. It aint gonna get any better I Know…..

anyway as if to goad me and martina about what we are missing here is what we were doing in 2016

And the year Before 🙂
