It rained today, so for the first time in three months, we spent the day sleeping in, Reading the papers and lighting a fire. It was nice to just sit still for a bit in our own company and enjoy the house which we spend so little time in. I think I’ve had a glimpse of the good parts of winter smallholding, although I am aware it will also be lots of cleaning out on the rain etc.
It’s just starting to feel like we have the basics in place and can relax every now and then. We are getting 6 eggs a day and more salad than we can eat, so the living is beginning to feel a bit ‘easy’.
