Hmmm - I mean keeping busy once we are on the farm :)
Until then I still have lots of packing to do LOL
But - once we are there, I need to have loads to fill my days - apart from building phase 2 of our home, unpacking the loads of boxes, and re-arranging the furniture and planting trees or tending to the veggie patch.
Obviously I am not going to be mixing lime and cement and laying bricks, nor will I be applying a high lime render. And I will not be clambering up a half-finished building to assist with the installation of the roof beans or recycled resin roof tiles. But, I will be helping RMan to paint the walls both inside and out with an eco-friendlier low VOC paint :)
So - I can foresee quite a bit of hurry up and wait time. And I can't start planting seeds until August, with the majority going into the seed trays / ground in September.
Providing the sun shines, to fill my time I have my solar oven. If it doesn't, I have my pewter work. And, thanks to a lesson from DD, I now have a new hobby...
... mosaic-ing. Perfect!
I came across some numbers which would be perfect for such a beginners project. And they will provide easy future identification and location of our property. To try out this new past time, I purchased the tile cutter, relevant numbers and some special mosaic tiles.
|The parts required|
|Complete, and all ready to place on our|
soon-to-be new farm gate
|Surely this is salvageable|
|A bit of glue should do the trick...|
|The broken tray can go on the lower section :)|
I have plenty of ideas - and all of them are eco-friendly and involve recycling :) Bloody marvellous mate :)
As I progress I'll share my finished items with you all - if you'd like to see?
Now - to convince RMan that left over tiles are valuable (to me) and should be schlepped along with us on the move.
"Clutter, clutter, clutter", I can hear him mutter...
