Can you believe in all this rain I’ve not got a pair of wellies having planted my last pair with marigolds! Needless to say, it’s a visit to welly shop today as I’m due to visit a farm later this morning. We’re still on Buzzard watch having lost two hens in the past fortnight, I just hope after all this waving of my arms it will at least have an affect on my bingo wings. Been a busy couple of weeks, Glyn and I went to the recording of Top Gear where attractive young women are moved into shot, so obviously we didn’t make your tele screen, I’ve had my picture taken for Sunshine Radio, photographer started me off posing by graffiti covered walls until it became clear I was much happier by a tree, so I’ve ended up outside Hereford Cathedral. We’ve now acquired a cat (long story), and I have been asked to write for another magazine from November which is exciting, but I can’t say which one just yet.
It’s finally happened, today I’m having lunch with a group of ladies! Not sure how it happened as it began with just a pal who has now invited other pals who I don’t know so now usual thought process going on, what to wear, what to take and to be honest, all I want to do is stay at home and put my tomato plants in.
Glyn and I were out and about last week hosting the cookery theatre at Stafford Show. Was nice to see some familiar faces from our old stomping ground. Was sad to see that the cattle lines can’t be accessed without a pass though. I do think county shows have an obligation to make everyone aware of the situation in British Agriculture, especially Dairy Farming. I appreciate it’s done with safety in mind, but I’m sure they could come up with a solution especially when other shows allow it.
It was on the first day of the show we drove home listening to 5live with the horrific details coming out of Cumbria. It’s hard enough to lose someone but to lose them in such a violent way, not sure you’d ever be able to come to terms with that. Thoughts and prayers with everyone in that part of the world.
Back at home the lambs have experienced their first thunder storm, the cows are still down at the neighbours and we lost one of our original ex battery hens who just didn’t wake up one morning.
Went to see the fabulous Rob Brydon at Hay Festival and I’ve definitely hit that age as there’s something very attractive about him, but shouldn’t have had that bacon butty before hand as it did nothing but repeat!
This week looks a busy one, mustn’t forget the tomatoes!
