First snow of the year

It has been a busy day again today, this morning we were moving some hay that we manged to buy in the summer but had nowhere to store.  Now we have an almost finished shed we have put it in there.  It looks rather lost in the huge space, we are used to having to squeeze things in.

The mezzanine is now up in the shed and looks huge (photo below).  Hopefully it will be used for hay storage amongst other things.  I think we need some steps though as it's a long way up and the ladders I found didn't feel very secure.

When we arrived up at the hill there was an army of NEDL (Northern Electric) workmen, vans and machines sorting out our electricity line.  All being well we will have electric to the house in a few days.


Whilst I was moving and stacking the bales of hay the boys were getting the fencing materials ready for the morning.  As is always the case Paul was sat on the quad whilst poor Dave was having to run behind; at least it's not just me he treats like that!
Whilst we were up on the hill we had the first snow of the season.  It was absolutely freezing, all I can say is I hope our heating is good because it is going to be a cold up there.

That barn looks fabulous!

one thing I have learned on the farm (and at home) is that a big empty area doesn't stay that long forever. That big shed will have many uses :)

Is that a barn or the new O2 arena! Brill - you'll have a great time filling it up! Shirley & Robbie
