Caught The Crofter and Dad crofter moving this grass around the place the other day. I think they lay it out like turf. Easier than growing it.

 Ahh, there are PoR and  5yearplanmobile sulking on the grass and wondering why they have been forsaken. Well, I'll tell you why. The Crofter has got a new toy almost out-doing Donald FourTractors in the process.
That's the new interloper - Mr NewTractor all painted and prim, sporting a mere sou-son of rust hiding therein the big shed while little Quad has to bear the brunt of the weather.
So cruel. Cruel I tell you.

I know, it's been ages since I posted here - but I have my reasons. Valid ones that is.

Only yesterday I noticed the arrival of a new beast.

There he is snugged up to the big shed keeping out the wind and sunning its self in the unexpected and welcome sunshine that has been around the place this week. As it happened, I passed a trailer loaded with the thing as I drove home from work one evening. Didn't realise it was coming to the Crofter and everything. I mean, he still has the PoR, the 5yearPlan mobile not forgetting the Pimpmobile2 and the Quad plus the digger thing. Oh, you boys do like your toys.

Here he is proudly moving sh,,, stuff to somewhere else at the beck and call of The Crofter while Dad Crofter slowly backs up the Pimpmobile2 after pulling the NewTractor out of the mud.


Yes, the Crofter managed to get the thing well and truly stuck!

Ooof ! The Crofter caught feeding the coows - or some of them anyway. This is the apportionment. eh? The rest of them are/were in the big shed on the croft. I really can't keep up. There's three baby coows now too. and four or is it five ferrets?

And since you were waiting for it, here's Mrs Crofter tutting over the brakelight. Another job to do after painting the PoR pink.

Mrs Crofter has been very busy. Aprt from sorting the trailer light out, feeding the coows and all Gemmima has been busily baking for the Charity Macmillan Nurses coffee morning at the Hotel where she works. Great cause and The Crofter has gone along to in support too.
