Welcome to my blog, where a 30-something couple from the UK renovate and extend an old cottage, build some outbuildings, raise some hens and grow firewood trees and vegetables on our Acre in Hampshire. It's a bit like a smallholding but without too many animals, so we call it a homestead - living within our means, relying on ourselves and having a wonderful life!

The Newbury Show

Late September always means the Newbury Show. I love its mix of agricultural machinery, traditional animal classes and local society. Although we have moved ‘away’ from Berkshire, the show holds very fun nostalgic memories for me, and I make an effort to go every year or two.

Simon’s next Purchase No. 1 - it’s got nose weights, PTO and a three point linkage! Want!


















Simon’s next Purchase No. 2 - alright, a springer and not a cocker, but the meaning is there. The handler is pulling the perfect 'Oooooh Puppy!' face...
