I hate you both. No, really. Jammy gits!

Looks like you're on an estate of some kind, or is it all yours? :shock:

An estate??? :shock:

Do you see any trainers hanging from the trees? Chavs on the corner? Burned-out cars on bricks?

...Oh, I see what you mean. Yes - it is a country estate :grin:

It's not all ours... the fields in the distance aren't ours.... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

But then, there is rather a lot more in the other directions too. Have discovered we have to share it though - with badgers, foxes, rabbits and a rather splendid buzzard. We are liking the buzzard. 8)

Oh yes, and the chap next door (about a 6 minute walk) owns a brewery. And they cycle. It's a dreadful place to live 8)

Dammit! No one is commenting on the steampunk light fittings. ](*,) ](*,)

There's a good half acre formal garden out the front (well, it's mostly lawn..), but the shed almost goes there on my previous statement of requirement - shed with house attached! :lol: :lol:

Neighbours ARE lovely... left us a 'welcome pack' which included smoked salmon, gorgeous fruit cake, free range eggs, bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and a note inviting us round. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: TOP chaps! Really really top chaps.

Need to clear and dredge the duck pond, methinks, to get rid of the weed and encourage some ducks - although the frequent foxes might be a bit off putting to feathered friends :shock:

Seeing as you haven't put any pictures of the house up we can only conclude that you are actually living in the shed and have been employed by the real owners to keep down vermin. [-(

With a shed like that who needs a house?? Old cast iron pot bellied stove (Chuffers'll do in emergency :lol: ), something to lie down on and a field for ablutions, spend the cash on bikes & tools! \:D/

Hens??? :shock:

I saw that tv program last night, where it said one could catch obesity from chickens.... Really - a chicken virus that would make you fat.

I've been trying to do it with just food for years.... If only I'd known. :mrgreen:

Hens? HENS???

Are you quite mad? There are foxes round here who are sooo comfortable in the area that they feel free to sh@g in the farmyard out back... :shock: :shock: :shock:

Anyhoo, if we're having any foul, err, I mean fowl around here, they'll be ducks... we has a duckpond!! 8) 8) :wink:

...and we would like to call the barn, 'Velodrome' :grin:

Shouldn't be too tricky to knock up a spot of banked track. How hard can it be?
