Hello, I am Sarah Louise.  I live in a cottage (surprise) in the Lake District, UK where, again, surprise, it is wet and windy.

I have a springer spaniel, Ellie, 2  horses, Bailey and Russell and 2 cats; Squirrel and Tinker,  some chickens (try not to count as the number just goes up and up), a duck call Mr Duckings and a donkey; we cannot forget the donkey. Albert.

I love gardening, and have a foundation degree in horticulture. I have an over run garden, polytunnel and pottager.  There is a small area I call an orchard, but that is poetic license.

As my day job is as a Lawyer, it is not surprising that I have not got the garden in check.  So one of my plans is to blog to keep an update of my progress, so that means I have to make progress!  Yes?… lets wait and see.

I also want a record of what has been achieved, it is really easy to fall into gloom, particularly in winter, and just look at the negatives, what I haven’t got done, what still needs doing.. , but I live in the most beautiful area of the country, I have to feel blessed about it, but, sometimes I just need to be reminded.

So generally I will not bore you with the dull, or bad times that happen here, I will share the positives and fun times. But don’t be fooled I am not trying to say life is perfect, I am just reminding myself of the good times when things get gloomy!  For example today, I have a lame horse, a horse with a poorly tummy, too much work to do, a poorly cat (life expectancy not looking good), it has rained for 2 weeks nearly none stop now (hence poorly horses they are fed up)… and oh yes………….. my septic tank is blocked!  Pooo, quite literally.

Hope your day is better

SL  xx
