Episode 3 - The Land Rover arrives and holes are dug!

Posted on December 24, 2014 at 4:15 AM

One of the advantages of living in the country is that you are required, by law, to take possession of a four-wheel drive vehicle, and being British the only four-wheel drive vehicle we are permitted to buy is a Land Rover. So off we toddled to the Land Rover emporium and came back with CCA. She is a beautiful 1981 Series III 88 inch in superb condition. She arrived home and settled in beautifully – even the chickens and cats took to her. She even agreed to Izzy and Mikey having a drive! Ok, so the law is self-generated - for our overseas readers, it isn’t really the law, but we needed an excuse!

We also ‘had to’ hire a digger as I needed to dig a pond – it was a great priority! We had selected the location in the old pig field (now renamed the Duck Field). The digger arrived and I got to work, supervised by Suzi, who was concerned I might bury myself! Once the hole was dug I then moved on to dig foundation holes for the polytunnel. Bearing in mind the windy aspect the polytunnel needs to be firmly sited. Even though we selected the most sheltered spot, as someone said the other day, there is nothing between Brazil and us, so there is plenty of scope for the wind to speed up!

In the meantime Suzi started cleaning up the caravan ready for the season, because we are starting to get bookings for next summer, so pressure on.

As I write this we are getting the Library ready for the Christmas festivities so more pictures next time, as well as updates on the pond and polytunnel.

All that remains is for Suzi and I and all the tribe to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year.
