We are keeping ourselves busy with natures freebies. Today we went for our second bramble picking of the year. We take a good haul but leave plenty for other people and the birds. They are currently sitting in a bowl of cold water letting all the nasty’s float out, before being open frozen and bagged up. Hubby uses them for his smoothies and I’ll of course have to make a apply and bramble crumble with them. We may go back next week for the last picking.
Rodney and Buster, the two latest additions to the family are settling in very well. They are 12 weeks old tomorrow and have now had their first injections. An awful experience for them as the first one is a stinger but it is for the greater good.
In smallholding news, well smallholding to be news, we had a valuation completed on Friday which means we should get the results back by Wednesday. Fingers crossed they say it is worth what we need for the mortgage.
I wonder what this week will bring? Will our buyers finally get organised and get some paperwork through to the solicitor? Will our purchase property find her onward house as she hasn’t as of yet. She will move in to rented if she needs to but by when is the question! We are hoping to move on Bonfire night…….It will be a Guy Fawkes we certainly will remember, remember.
