As the blog name suggests I live in a small cottage in the depths of the Welsh countryside, with: my cat Minnie; Alfie, my dog; and my horse Max, who all live in contented harmony. Well most of the time!
In my twenties I lived in Italy, so I love all things Italian. I returned to the UK to study, and got stuck! While in Rome, I travelled quite a lot, but since returning home and gathering all these animals around me, it’s not so easy to jet off to far flung places. Besides, I don’t particularly want to. Am content where I am.
Goodness knows where this blog will take me.. I love riding my horse around the quiet country lanes; gardening; growing my own vegetables, and cooking them. I like to keep up with current and world affairs. I love music, but am not fanatical about any one genre. Am an avid reader and a bit of a pedant. I love the Archers. I don’t suffer fools gladly, so may well have the odd rant, when I get braver at this blogging malarky.
It will start off as a diary and if you would care to follow me on this journey, then I would be deeply honoured.
