Lizzy is a very beautiful young chow that has come to stay with us while she waits for her forever family to find her.


A rough week

May 10th, 2010 by Heidi

Apologies for the radio silence but last week was pretty rough. On top of the stress of moving, two mortgages etc, we had some dog trouble. With all of this, and my routine being ‘messed up’, I reached breaking point and rather stopped functioning for a few days.

Saturday morning saw a new arrival, Devon Blue – and I am not talking about the cheese!


Dog Racing!

This week’s You Capture theme is kisses and I must admit I was thinking I was going to be missing a challenge.


Not a super week!

February 7th, 2010 by Heidi

I have been rather under par this week which has meant not many things being checked off on the task list. I have a hard time giving myself time off, as if I am sitting still then I am generally worrying about what I should be doing, and feeling guilty about it. This week has been a prime example of that – I haven’t given myself a proper day off but also haven’t really managed to achieve anything!


Where did it go?

January 31st, 2010 by Heidi

Where did January go? I am really not sure how it is already the last day in January. Now don’t get me wrong, the closer we get to Spring the more excited I get thinking about the lambs and my vegetable garden. But with the speed at which this month passed I am not going to be ready!


Sunday roundup

January 24th, 2010 by Heidi

It has been a busy week with lots of cat & dog activity; time spent with friends old and new; chores, cooking, fibre arts, etc etc ….


Sunday roundup

January 17th, 2010 by Heidi

It struck me that it might be a good idea to have a weekly round up post on a Sunday, some days there are simply too many things to write about, and sometimes the things I want to share don’t need a post all to themselves. These things aren’t less important than the normal posts, in fact some of todays is more important than the ‘regular scheduled programming’, it’s just that during the week I have a task list I work to even if sometimes the world rearranges my plans!

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


Not so secret rendezvous!

August 7th, 2009 by Heidi

Today I met a very handsome young man!


Affectionate felines seeking laps!

July 28th, 2009 by Heidi

While the moving on of Charlie, Sammy, Willow and Willomena reduced our numbers it did not leave us without any foster cats. But with our planned trip in September we are trying to reduce the number of felines in our house to just our permanent residents, as that is already a lot to ask of any cat sitter!


A day on the farm

April 23rd, 2009 by Heidi

Isn’t Spring supposed to be about joy and new life! Well we are not having a good week, and today has been especially difficult. This post should probably come with a warning, it is an honest account of the harder side of farming, rescue & life.
