Is That What I Think It Is?

SUN! Oh wowee!

Quick! Get that washed bedding on the line!

Hurry! Get that child outside and get that sunshine on his skin!

But do it very quickly as there are very, very grey rain clouds heading this way!

I may be hoping in vain that my washing will dry but there it is a bit windy out there so I’m in for a chance.

I’ve been very daydream-y today, and wishful thinking-y, and making nearly-impossible-to-achieve plans that to achieve them would take many many years… They’re very John Seymour kind of dreams.

NO! Not those kind of dreams!

This kind – my bible. I have had this book since 2004-ish. I love it. If I had to get rid of ALL my books and save just one, it would be this one.

In my wildest dreams I’d have the idyllic farmhouse setting surrounded by fields and woodland. There be plenty of space for growing all our veg & fruit, space for more hens, goats and some sheep and a couple of horses.
There would be a few outbuildings to convert into workshops and a dairy would be lovely.
We’d make a living through selling produce and handicrafts and J would buy, do up and sell classic cars.

Realistically though it would be nice to have enough space to grow all fruit & veg, have more hens and a couple of goats.

I am determined that one day we shall live a life as close to this as possible. I’m going off to dream some more while Munchkin is blissfully sleeping.
