"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003

...do you wanna know a secret?

Do you promise not to that you'll tell?

Whoa oh oh


Let me whisper in your ear,

Say the words you long to hear..."

(amended lyrics from : "Do you want to know a secret?" - The Beatles 1964 )

Stay tuned :D  

All will be revealed next week.

    1. FiD - I can't help myself. I'm so excited, it's been a long 3 month road to get to this point, but what is to be revealed isn't quite ready for disclosure just yet?

  2. Dani, this is not my favorite post! ;)

    1. Quinn - What can I say? :D I'm so excited and I can't wait to share - and am frustrated that I haven't managed to complete it in order to share it already.

      So I thought a soupcon of info could / would whet appetites... ;)

  3. Ooh, ooh, ooh, can't wait.

    1. Mum - I hope you're not disappointed... ?

  4. YAY! I love a mystery!!! and a REVEAL!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day and removes the "loneliness' of sitting at my screen blogging supposedly to myself ;) I try and reply as quickly as possible so please forgive me if sometimes my response is delayed.
