I have taken delivery of some fruit trees. Sadly, I had to pay for these :). There’s a pear, fig tree, almond and apricot. At the moment they are all in temporary containers in the greenhouse. Their names from the website are:
This is the fruit cage we have made that in currently being changed into temporary chicken housing. It’ll do a great job over the soft fruit come summer.

I was just reading Dawn’s blog to catch up when I glanced at her sidebar and noticed it said 6 days since my last post. That has gone scarily quick. As much as I love December and the Christmas build up, there is a lot to do on top of the usual.
The elves have been busy keeping an eye in the kids. No matter how I moved them round, this photo still looked pretty rude and it wasn’t meant to! Sorry about that, though I did get a giggle.
We’ve found another hay supplier. I didn’t need one, but whilst helping a friend in need at the weekend, we got chatting and he is local and does small bales for £3 a bale which is average for here. The hay was nice and dry, no mould and not too sweet, so will be good for the horses and sheep when they get their extra. Grace also made a new friend. The innocent trust between a puppy and a child made my heart melt.
Steven made a new friend. What a corker of a boy!
Buster is adamant there is something in the walls. I can’t hear anything and I hope it isn’t mice or worse. No suggestion other than Buster refusing to move, looking transfixed at it.
I’ve also bought the sheep a mineral lick as the grass is obviously not growing. Plus I have acquired a new chest freezer (new to us) for FREE but I insisted our friend take some petrol money for dropping it off.
