At last a chance to get a quick update of the blog. I have as you might have guessed been busy. Along with all the farm jobs we have been working on our turbine project which is finally nearly complete.
Harvest was indifferent at best but the real problem has been finding a market for organic grain. Demand has simply stopped. Organic premiums on the livestock side have also disappeared so we are now selling lamb into the export trade.
Christmas has been magnificent, a break, a feast, a family fun time, number 5 with the wrapping paper was the funniest thing I have seen for a long time. She didn't care about what she got but what it was wrapped in. All that shiny paper really made her Christmas.
The rest have now discovered the joys of online shopping, they asked for promises of the things they needed to be bought later (some at half price) So we get a peaceful family time no rush to shops and good value. Happy sale shopping!
