Where on earth is the time going? Adrian is still going with his theory that we are going to pay for this mild weather somewhere along the road. Today he is spraying and lately they have been catching up with jobs like replacing gate posts and laying a new water pipe that has been on top of the ground for 2 years, after we had had a serious water leak. Usually when we have a leak there is a lack of pressure so if I turn on the taps in the house and the pressure is low we always investigate but on this occasion there was no loss of pressure and there were no visible wet areas anywhere on the farm, in fact it seems that the water was leaking into an adit for a considerable time, resulting in a rather large water bill. We are now looking into a bore hole for the farm which will certainly help with our bill.
Adrian and I went to Madeira for a weeks holiday, it was so lovely and there were many similarities with Cornwall, here are the 4 most obvious.
I have started cooking for the campsite but I have not got off to a good start, I have a lovely recipe for a sweet potato curry and decided to make this in a large batch, however, I never really follow a recipe to the letter and am always messing about with the quantities, lets just say it is okay but not amazing (so I will have to eat it). This week I am going to tackle my honesty shop, tidying, painting and generally sorting for our new season. But first a trip to Billingsmoor Farm to stay with Rob and Jayne so that we can go to a trade show.
It is always difficult writing as there is always something going on, first of all I have to remember it, then have time to write it and then I am never sure of how many people read my blogs (although a couple of guests have admitted to reading them), so when I saw this quote from an unknown author I thought, that’s me!
“I hope someday to write something worth plagerizing”.
Love from Cornwall X
