The Quickening.

Post by cristy on Fri Dec 28, 2018 5:20 pm

Its been a good day after all that eating, drinking and sat in the chair clown  So i've been on the roof pointing the ridge tiles.  I planted me shallots and a few of early spuds. I know its not yet 2019 but there is summit in the air.
I have heard that it`s going to be a hard winter. Perhaps nature knows different,

I too have heard we are in for a hard winter. I had better get my arse in gear and get the apple tree holes dug ready for them.
Hope your roof wasn't leaking. That was very brave getting on a roof.
I spent the day strimming rushes and mucking out poultry. Have to make the most of this weather

I did have a bit of a leak, and have been waiting for a bit of dry weather. Not brave but it needed doing. A simple enough job but I admit my age is taking a bit of a toll. I have in the past been running all over the roof doing various jobs but now I feel less comfortable doing it. I even tied a rope around the chimney and wore a safety harness. Tempus fugit Very Happy Very Happy. Good luck with your new orchard. You wont go far wrong under Sean`s tutelage. I am not convinced that we are going to have a hard time this winter but there's still plenty of time for another best from the east. Fingers crossed.

For some reason, my trousers and waistcoat seem to have shrunk over the Christmas...and the bathroom scales is gone wrong... I've known this to happen before at this time of year - I believe the weather is to blame...

Very Happy . I knows what you mean. Sean I see that you wear a waistcoat. Gloria gave me one for xmas. A Harris Tweed. Luv it, it is somewhere to hang me new pocket watch. All I need now is to save up for the jacket and trousers. I do have a good pair of "Stirling" brown brogues though.

Stirling brogues eh? And Harris Tweed waistcoat! No expense spared there! Cool Nice to see someone dressing with a bit of style! And why not? Sad to say, most people now dress like down-at-heel American drug-pushers - tracksuits, running shoes etc. Those items of apparel used to be worn only by athletes but now... most people wearing them are straining to walk, never mind run!
