I can smell poo!


I really can. It’s nice, it’s really nice, and it brings heartfelt tears to my eyes.

I love the smell of horse poo, the smell of horses, tack, rugs and all that comes with horses. I miss my horses desperately.

We have had a bad day with more problems arising with the boat we have purchased and the haul out yard.

Noel and I have found sanctuary in a secluded farmhouse (the money for the boat is in the ether, moving from our bank account to the owners’ bank account – no one has the money, no one has the boat – a bizarre and uncomfortable place to be!)

Anyhow, a lovely English (hoorraayyyy!) family live on a beautiful ‘farm’  property (barns, fields, dogs, cats and horses, (did I mention the horses?)). Within this magnificent complex, we have an amazing view and sighing horses right below our windows. We walk through a beautiful old barn to climb up into our apartment.

I don’t think I will leave. I don’t want to! It is a very reasonably priced piece of heaven . . . . how long do we stay until we can claim squatters rights ?!(joke – if the owners are reading this) – . . . well, probably 😉

So, it’s a liquid lunch for me (good job French wine doesn’t ‘hurt’) – as it is too hot to walk to the supermarket!)

Sigh. It’s times like this, I just want to go home. DSC_0078 DSC_0079 DSC_0080 DSC_0081

  1. You’ll be ok, the bank has to make money…..enjoy your surrounds looks lovely maybe you can help them with their website or photos etc turn it into a big positive….


  2. Well, the heading had me concerned!! Yes, a play on words. Thought the dreaded “boat head blocked again” had happened. I trust the boat yard treats you nice – we all know what can happen when a “little job” starts on a boat; can go on and on, and the cost can go up and up.
    I am confident that you 2 will be able to sort it out.
    Finished the “Cruisers AA” book. Lots of information and ideas.
    From a cool but sunny Nowra.


    • Thanks for that – sending you a email now – if I can find your email address – if not, can you email me (ckijack@yahoo.com) – any chance of a review on Amazon – or where you purchased the book? Reviews are the life blood of indie authors! Thanks
