Simon and our HelpX friend worked hard today on clearing out the barn. The hay is now in there, not in the side barn where the door whips open at great speed when it is windy, potentially doing a passer-by a nasty injury. Loose hay has been bagged up and the stuff too dusty to use as feed put in bags to scatter in the duck pen when it gets very slippery. Rubbish has been recycled or taken to the tip and generally it is looking very tidy. There is also space for the car so I don't need to scrape the windows on frosty school run mornings. Well it could were it not for this .....


  1. I had one of those at the weekend and when I took it to the garage they said I would need a new tyre!!
    Good luck

  2. Sounds like a lot of work, hope the hay didn't stir up to much dust.. i always sneezed a lot when putting in hay

  3. bother indeed - i recommend warm apple pie and cream to cure all ills ;)

  4. Sue - we are off to see if the tyre can be fixed today.

    Sandra - ooops indeed - but at least we have the 4x4

    Kyle - welcome to the blog. Dust - yup - there was loads - aaaaaahchoo!!

    Carrie - Actually I am a rhubarb crumble and custard girl myself!
