The day of reckoning

Thursday morning the alarm goes of at seven, I hesitate, but slowly throw back the duvet. Penny is up and ready to go up to the farm. ‘You won’t be able to keep this up.’ I tell her. ‘What else can I do, Dad can’t manage by himself and the cowman is past it really.’ She pops a banana into her pocket...

Right Harry.

Wednesday morning I was up early and after inspecting the goats and the remarkable growth of Penny’s lettuce. I shovelled a pathway through the snow with the big shovel that the committee had warned me not to use I was getting on top of the problem. I just had to go up to see Harry Tooth. He was...

Soothing the wild minds

‘Thank goodness that’s over.’ Archie said. He gave Albert a sad smile. It’s six o’clock have you got any thing on the books?’ ‘Well, I’m a bit hungry,’ Albert confessed. ‘It’s probably nervous exhaustion.’ ‘Yes understandable,’ mused Archie. ‘Have a look in my lunch tin.’ Albert felt in the glow of...

Deeds not so dirty

Do you ever get the feeling that something is happening over which you had no control?’ Penny was not very amiable, but I didn’t take a lot of notice of that.

Dealing with gentle natured er, Goats.

I had a beautiful night’s sleep, I dreamt I was rowing Dorothy Bumskin down a canal, she was sitting holding a parasol and little white ducks were quacking and little yellow babies were bobbing along behind. Willow trees were whispering the sort of things that trees do. The water was calm disturbed... Sign in to see full entry.

Hello again it does not seem long ago that I was, well, never mind. I have been escorted all over the Tower by Dorothy and I have come to the same conclusion as she has, It is much too large to maintain, We have a problem she wants to remain in the village and also find somewhere to keep her Daddy’s...

Going home.

Revelations Sometimes I wish emails had not been invented. Ms Dorothy Bumskin keeps sending messages; I don’t think she realizes that I have an organisation to run. Members are demanding information about strange plants which they have carefully tended for years and I don’t like to tell them that it... Sign in to see full entry.

'So I had a good idea, what to research, I felt sure it was all linked with this mysterious woman.' ‘Arth.’ Izzie put her hand on mine. ‘Did you dig the dirt on her?’ ‘A cup of coffee sweetie,’ I said softly.’ I didn’t think Izzie had a tender spot in her body. ‘Have a digestive biscuit with it.’she...
