I never bother with fabric softener either. Vinegar didn’t smell, but did t make any other noticeable difference. I wear jeans, cotton tops and wool hand knits. Jenna wears school uniform or cotton ...

Daffodils are traditional. Apparently the Herefordshire orchards grew daffs under the apple trees and mistletoe in them so they could have three crops to sell from the space - daffs in spring, apples ...

Looks like roadkill if you ask me

Best kind of fox. My chickens are safe! (I quite like him though. Bet he wouldn’t eat my chickens!)

He is a bit creepy. I suspect he has dementia, and that may have been part of the problem, but he’s always been like it. He had cctv for a while, too, but was made to take it down because he was (po ...
