It has been quite a year for us, it has been our first full year here on our little farm.


Merry Chowmas

December 25th, 2009 by Steve and Heidi

Happy Holidays from all of us here at Ruis Dair Homestead.


A little more tuneful

December 18th, 2009 by Heidi

You may have read my post back in October about my beautiful new-to-me free piano. The only flaw in my plan for a free piano was that it needed tuning, and that isn’t free or even cheap!


A festive capture

December 17th, 2009 by Heidi

I must admit we weren’t going to bother with decorations at all this year, neither of us is feeling very festive and there didn’t seem much point. But then this week’s You Capture theme is holiday decor, and I had nothing to photograph!


A tale from the geek side!

December 16th, 2009 by Heidi

I am sorry about the title – please blame Steve’s weird sense of humour!

I don’t often talk about the more geeky side of me, but when I decided to escape from the office 9-5 environment I didn’t want to escape from web development entirely. I still love designing, developing and maintaining websites, and I do spend a surprising amount of time doing just that.


Traditional mincemeat pie

December 15th, 2009 by Heidi

Since the episode of River Cottage where Hugh made traditional mince pies with meat I have been fascinated by the idea and wanting to try it.


Fleecy goodness

December 14th, 2009 by Heidi

While I was out learning to spin on Saturday Steve was busy at home building me a skirting table. I wasn’t allowed to try it out when I got home though as Steve didn’t want me skirting in the house.


New wheels

December 13th, 2009 by Heidi

OK so it isn’t plural, its singular but then what kind of title would “new wheel” be!


Soup & chips

December 11th, 2009 by Heidi

So Thursday evening I found myself trying to figure out what my Fight Back Friday post should be about, and what we should have for dinner, and came to the conclusion – soup and chips!

This weeks You Capture theme is “Lines” …


Exciting post!

December 9th, 2009 by Heidi

The title may be a little misleading, chances are you won’t think this post is terribly exciting, but I was thrilled today when there was something other than the normal junk mail in our box.


Everything’s all-white!

December 8th, 2009 by Heidi

I know you have gotten used to a nice foodie post on a Tuesday, and as much as I would like to be participating in the carnivals, everything going on in the kitchen at the moment is top secret! I really wasn’t sure what I was going to write about today, then I downloaded the pictures I took today and thought I should share them with you.
