A visitor and some money

Tom comes round to view what we've bought and takes our photo.  We also get paid for our hay in real money.  A good day!

Some gardening is needed

Today we went to Hill Farm as proud owners and started clearing weeds (armfuls of them) from the front garden.

Our electric meters

I think we need some help with our electric supply!! We couldn't even decide which one we were meant to read and didn't fancy poking them about. Apparently one of them is a 'smart' meter!!

St Peter's

We go to the church open day and climb the tower.  From the top we can see our farm.  The church is the first one that I have know which is called St Peter's - thoughts of my father today - I wish I could have told him of our purchase after so long spent looking.

Finding a builder

The poor house needs a lot of work (there are gaps in the wall we can see daylight through) and we are meeting up over the next few days with four builders in the hope of finding someone we like who can start on our project quickly.

Our neighbour comes to cut the hay - the smell is wonderful - unlike the house which smells of cats and damp.  It's lovely hot weather with a bit of a breeze.
