Early Morning Clean Up
Sometimes you have to find little jobs to tied you over, this morning up at 5-30, cup of tea first then what to do, too early to feed animals they would still be tucked up asleep,
Got bread on the go, washing machine on, then decided to clean down the log burner
Out with the stove polish and cloths
It was pretty grubby
now its nicely blackened again
Then out with the glass cleaner
grubby but not too bad
Soon it was all clean
Finish off with the slate oil
The slate tiles were filthy
they were washed down and oiled
Logs all brought in and its ready to have a match put to it tonight,
the bread was done, washing was done
it was soon 8am and time to take out feed and hay, break the ice on the water troughs.
Sun is shining, blue sky the rest of the day is my own until 3pm, then walk the dog, feed animals, bed down goats and chickens, light the fire and enjoy 👍
