Already it is the middle of January and the silly season seems a distant memory. We seem to have started the new year off with a few things going wrong - first problem is the poo pit better know as the cesspit (we do not have town sewage) - the joys of rural living! One of the tanks is full of water and has not been draining away - has an enviro cycle system - makes the trees and plants grow and the grass nice and green!
Next problem is the grass cutter which decided it was in need of a couple of new front wheels and no I haven't been doing wheelies on it! So himself is now trying to hunt down a couple of wheels which won't cost us a fortune - meanwhile the grass is thinking whoopee lets have a party and grown like crazy, not funny!! They say it happens in three's so I'm wondering what else is going to go wrong.

A ray of light arrived in the mail today and made me all smiles as it was a frame mounted 'Forever Friends' picture done by Catherine of Bumpkin Bears. I love her drawings and I have another one on the way - a very talented lady and the drawings remind me of the early Pooh drawings. I will get a frame for it when I next go into town and then hang it on a wall where it will get seen nearly all the time.
