wooohoooo i have hit the 1k savings

wooohooooo i have now got over

sold some things at a farm auction yesturday.... some broad bean and cabbage plants, also sold some wax jackets and wellies,

cashed out my free scratchcard money from virgin bingo ( if you want to know how just let me know in the comments and i will talk you through it)

plus cashed out some money from paypal for things i have sold on ebay

been a beautifull day here, so i have been doing some more sowing, and waht ever surplus i got i will take to the auction, i am also going to layer some honeysuckle, to get some cuttings going, plus i think i will get some root cuttings from my pineapple mint, so ican sell them on too at hte auction... i might as well, even if i only get 50p per plant it all helps... towards my fund.

my sealed tin is getting heavier by the day too, with the loose change i am putting in.

sorry there are no pics today for you to see, but i really do want to make hte most of this weekend, and make the most of it out in the garden.

what a beautifull unspoiled gem

i seen an old farm advertised on the old internet, which is only a few miles away, and hubby agreed to take me to have a look,

wow was i in daydream heaven, an old little farmhouse cottage which i think dates back to the 1700's and hardly been modernised. vintage bliss

took some pics to show you all


and this is the back of the house.... this part of the house looks as though it was added umpteen years ago...its even lower than hubby, and he is 6ft 2


there is 10 acres of land, which is rough pasture and woods,ooooo ye and a stream at the bottom of the garden


here are some pics of the surrounding land



and for the grand sum of 220k.....((((((((((((((SIGN)))))))))))))))

on the way back the next house to the farm we seen a guy outside who hubby works with, and he was saying that loads of people have been going to see it, so its going to get snapped up, even with the loads of work that needs doing.

this afternoon when we came back i was sooooooooo desperate i was thinking of putting a donation button on my blog, or even starting a new blog purely for and then i came to my senses...

i will plodd along and one day hopefully when i have got money i will find another old farm

there's one good thing with all this, hubby is now on side, he was even working out how much tonnage i need to sell of grade A textiles to cover the

anyway going now as i am in the middle of making bacon and onion mini quiches with grated cheese on top. trying to use the abundance of eggs i've got.....tata for now..

'well.......I never'

Well......I never i actually found out that hubby has allways wanted a pet cow, and kept asking his parents for one when he was well he's got one now....ME....LOL...


I honestly think he is getting used to the 'good life' idea, he doesnt grumble anymore when i ask him to help me in the garden, and has said he wants to buy an incubator.....espcially when he seen how much the young geese were going for...
PLUS..... he doesnt tell me we cant have a smallholding he is def getting used to the idea..

sadly the chicks we bought a few weeks ago all died..was well gutted, the only thing i can think of it was too long in the cold in the auction, and the chill had set in.

been having a good few weeks.... managed to sell some vintage things in work so i can offically add another £500 to my total...

went to the arm auction again this weekend, was meaning to take htings to sell, but we got up late. bought a pair of young red silkies which are sooooooooo cute, and this year's hatch


and a white pair which are older...they were in a box so couldnt see them properly, and when we got them home their feet/legs are in very poor will be treating htem over the next week or so


this weekend i am making the most of the dry weather and have been in and out of the garden..and have been transplanting my cabbage plants etc


and now i am going to have a lovely fried egg sandwich with these lovely fresh eggs
