    Thumbs up Whatever happened to the Drinky's?!!

    Well, it seems like years ago that we packed our bags and bade farewell to you all before our big adventure moving to the country.

    It didn't quite go as planned - the 'temporary accommodation' planned to keep us all together didn't work out, and so Chris moved back in with his mother (don't laugh, please, he is still recovering!!!!!!) the kids were shipped out to their respective other parents, and I moved in with a colleague from work. Following a bizarre six weeks separation in which Chris and I felt like we were dating again - romantic meals and the odd weekend away to make up for not seeing each other in the week, we finally took over the cottage at the end of June.

    Since then, it has been non stop action - this is what all the fuss was about -



    ......having initially looked mostly like this (practicallyevery surface was yellow!!!!)...............



    ........and this..................



    .....we are now a little more civilised...........





    .........and it has been worth every moment to wake up and look out of the bedroom window to this..............



    .....and walk out of the front door to this...............



    To be fair, we probably have another good 4 months to go before it is spot on, but we are getting there, and it is SO worth it!!! (and with a little bit of luck, Mark and Cara won't let on that the living room STILL looks like that!!!!!!)

    Bring on the Good Life!!!

    Ha ha!! Funnily enough the paddock at the back is the 'hospital field' where the lambing ewes and calving cows are kept - also where anything that is sick goes to recover.

    We get to watch the cows going into ther milking shed every morning and evening - very rural (you can just smell the countryside!!! )

    Oh yes !!!

    My mums house is just like yours, overlooking the rolling fields (and the lambing sheds !!)... Hmmmm

    However, its always nice to see the little beasties frollicking around the fields getting used to their legs !!

    And then you'll have the 'other' nocturnal noises... Foxes, Badgers, Owls, Bats, Hedgehogs, Moles, Ferril Cats.......

    Its GREAT !! You cant beat it !!
