December diary

Dear Guests

One week until Father Christmas arrives with all my presents - I bet the reindeer will struggle to pull the sleigh (hope my son reads this!!!). Not long to wait and I will be trying my damson gin - Father Christmas is partial to some with his mince pie. I am looking forward to turkey with all the trimmings and lots of christmas pudding and rum sauce (I will think about dieting in 2013 sorry I meant 2012).

December has been a busy month for christmas buffets and quite a few moutain bikers have visited for brunch. Thanks to you all for your support.

We have got an two interesting additions to the farm - a legbar cockerel and one hen. They originated from Peru in the 1800s and lay blue eggs.

Today is a glorious cold crisp sunny day and all the mountains look really picturesque with the snow tipped tops - it is perfect walking or biking weather.

Anyway must dash as I have to feed the animals - I hope you all have a very happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.


PS - watch out for uploaded pictures on Christmas day.

PPS - Christmas lunch went well, there were no burnt offerings and even better my sister was here to do all the washing up (who needs a dishwasher). Looking forward to my turkey sandwiches later, and the Christmas pudding - surprisingly I could not manage to eat it before. Hope you have all had a good day and made the most of seeing your family and friends.


  1. What do you get if you cross a chicken with a cement mixer?
    A brick-layer!

  2. Farming must be a great way of life looking after animals must be so rewarding. I have never been camping - must try it this year. Looks like a fantastic site.
