The wind was howling through this morning
after doing the early morning lamb feed in PJ's and wellies
I came indoors for a cuppa and to get dressed
the phone rang
never good news so early in the morning
C Senior was on the phone, there dome barn had taken off and landed in the field
It has taken the fence with it, it was over the top of the vehicles
After all the animals were fed watered and checked on I popped round to give her hand clearing up a few bits and getting things under cover.
I think the barn has bit the dust it is fairly mangled up.
We haven't had any damage this time round.
When I came in my coat was covered in mud and thought I would throw it in the washing machine.
Emptying the pockets
This was the contents, lots of straw, broken biscuits for the goats, pen, greenhouse clips, dog whistle, buttons, pen knife and a pound coin I found on the drive way.
A bit of a collection.
Coat now in the machine also needs a few repairs after its washed and dried.
Last night I made a couple of sticky malt loaves
I have tried several different recipes over time and this one is the best I have tried yet Malt Loaf
I tried a slice last night with butter, it is lovely and sticky,
It does say on the recipe to leave for a couple of days to improve.
But you have to check its edible don't you.
The recipe has now been written in my book
along with several others that I needed to get written down.
I have to make a trip into town today, so I better get a move on.
