I am desperately trying to catch up with posting photos, yesterday I managed to do the crafty stuff and today will be general photos.
Having fun in the early morning sun.
But it is not fun having to keep an eye on more horses which are being fly grazed
We have lots of visits from dogs as my Daughter In Law runs a dog walking business http://www.walkingoncloud9.co.uk/wp/
This beautiful cat arrived last month ,at first we thought she was a stray but it turned out she had escaped while being looked after in the village, I am not sure she would have stayed long with all the dogs arriving.
I also get lots of visits from little people
Miss X and Master M
And sometimes i visit them for high tech babysitting, gone are the days of creeping around the house listening for babies.
Wilson is becoming slower and greyer each day, but at least the rat poison had no lasting affect.
We managed a couple of days in Brixham,Devon, if anyone in the UK has a chance watch Fish Town on Pick TV,all about the characters of this lovely fishing port.
The little people were there as well.
I have made a lot of friends online and Pam in Memphis is one of the best, I happened to mention two of my oldest friends here in the UK were going to be in Memphis for a couple of days,,and she arranged to meet them and show them around. It was so kind of her, I just wish I had been there as well.
I am quite excited today as the 400 solar panels are being installed in our field,
And the weather has been wonderful,but very cold.
The frames are going up very quickly, and the panels will be in place by this Friday,next week we should be connected to the National Grid,and hopefully producing enough power for at least 20 homes.

How can it possibly be Easter ,it only seems like yesterday I was complaining about the commercial side of Christmas,and now the next Christian festival to be ruined has been and gone.
As a child I remember the simple gift of one tiny egg,and always going to Church / Sunday school wearing a boater.My Mother or Father always warmed the Hot cross buns, and sang the song as they were handed out.
Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
One ha' penny, two ha' penny,
Hot cross buns!
If you have no daughters,
Give them to your sons
One ha' penny,
Two ha' penny,
Hot Cross Buns!
Now they are available all year round.
This Easter has also been very cold, in fact it has been the coldest since modern records began, this means that for many including us the Bank Holiday meant staying at home.
The last few weeks has been a time for staying in and crafting
A few journal pages
attempts at faces
Journal pages and tags for a swap with Lorraine
A special hanging banner /Tag for the Mental health ward that looked after my Mother
and another one for Mothers day
and a special tag for my Mother in Law
the flowers on here were made using this method
For fear of boring anyone I will leave all non craft related photos until the next post.
Thank you for visiting,I hope you all had a Happy Healthy Easter.
