Is this the real life ...
or just fantasy?
It's been a long winter break this year, and we've not been able to get to the farm at all, even at Christmas. I have been holed up in my English office/workroom fulminating and generally being depressed about it all. Living in two places is so not my thing.
But today, by cavalierly manipulations, putting off appointments, skiving off work and generally just deciding to do it I think we're going to head over there and see if it's still standing.
Naturally this raises problems of its own. How are the tender new seedlings of chillies and herbs going to manage in my absence from here? Will I be able to catch the cats? Will we freeze to death when we arrive, having chosen our week so badly that it's probably going to be the coldest of the winter so far? So many questions.
I'll let you know when I get there. Until soon, I hope.
