Well, its been a while, but I haven’t forgotten you (Lorna!) so back with an update. Don’t even know where to start. So will start by saying I have done absolutely nothing constructive this weekend. Have been mostly eating, drinking, walking in the rain and throwing coconuts. The good news is that it was our village show this weekend, and our debut year was a complete success. We didn’t enter many classes, not really knowing what it was all about, but won in every one! Andy – first prize biscuits (sorry Pete: third place loser!); Sarah – first prize beetroot chutney; and perhaps most impressively (because there were more than 2 entries in this class) first prize courgettes. Just watch out everyone, next year we will be back with avengence.

PS Note to self, when the hill is in cloud, there is no spectacular view to show the city folk visiting for the weekend; there is just a lot of very wet sheep.

 This is a first test post. It seems to be working…

Trying to get to grips with this whole blogging thing, so be patient while we get the hang of it!

PS Thank you to  My Tiny Plot  who’s tutorial on WordPress gave me the confidence to get started.
