A NEW YEAR, JANUARY 1st 2015
A new year and hopefully more progress and adventures with the woods and hens as well as further developing the Green Oval tree business... a 5-mile walk for Janet and I to celebrate being here at the start of another year. Murky skies but warm after the frosty end to 2014.
The gliders whose field borders ours have applied for planning permission to fly motorised gliders, which might be a pain. They've been turned down before but keep banging on the door. Could do without the noise, frankly. I also had to tell a pheasant shoot to get out of our woodland in December. Hopefully they will respect the boundaries in future - very empowering to yell 'Get off my land!' and I felt like the grumpy old men of my youth: "Can we have our pheasant back, mister?" - "No, you can't. Now go away..."
