Well we're trying to make the most of the rainy weather, last night we went out in our spikes for a delibrately muddy bogg run around our local Country Park. There's nothing like being able to run through flooded fields with out fear of sinking in, for bringing out your inner child - and the other bonus about spikes is that you don't have to have a long run to get a good work out.
Our roles are becoming very gendered again - today Col was digging trenches at the Brinsley wreck, so that we can lay cables for our workshops, its hard work and muddy and there's so much water, both over and underground, that the trenches are quickly becoming moats. While he was making a start on this, I was gathering the withering daffodil heads for natural dyeing - Hmm so much for the new neighbours being impressed with how much d-i-y-ing i was doing.
There's so much to do at the moment, trying to get the Brinsley wreck habitable, and both of us setting up the treehuggery business, I've got loads of craft fairs coming up and don't feel there's enough time in the day - the cushions though are fun to do, and although they're all based on the same theme, they're constantly changing. I haven't put all 4 seasons together for a while, so here they are.....
I'll post a photo of the moat later!
