Mum Crofter takes in the old place in peace and quiet
.... after she has checked out the veg, talking to them nicely so they grow straighter. or something.
While the Crofter was away visiting the peoples who live on the mainland, strutting his stuff and what have you, Dad and Mum were keeping the old place running. Huh? You mean they can cope without The Crofter?? Oh yes, now you mention it, I think they get on rather better as it happens but don't tell The Crofter because he won't speak to me.
Anyway, we have been on the mainland too for a couple of days and The Crofter is back in Tolsta. We shall visit later..
