About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

Sunshine and happiness

It has rained and rained for weeks, which has clearly been very good for the garden.

Except that we don't have a garden anymore. 

We have a jungle.

Complete with jungle fowl.

The trees have finally put their leaves on and the bluebells have come out.

It really is beautiful outside.

I am going to hope it stays that way, because there is so much work that needs to be done out there.

(Look at that grass... and I own a rotary push mower. Shudder.)

This means the hammock must be hung up first.

Of course.

I pulled out all 50m of extension cord, and plugged it into another 50m extension cord, and it turns out that is still not long enough to use strimmer in about 98% of the garden. 

I am going to have to rethink things.

Today, I am grateful that summer looks like she's just around the corner.

Wishing you sunshine and happiness.

  1. As the mother of five children, now all grown up, [and a busy writer] I remember those happy days well. Our rural idyll was Shropshire. The grass in the vegetable garden was always too long. We didn't have a hammock, but we had lots of excuses for not getting things done. And even when we were doing nothing, the garden still grew, the gooseberries fruited, the damsons and plums yielded their fruits too - and the brocoli, with a will of its own, kept coming back. I wish you all well.
