Well it seems that leaving suburbia for the country is THE fashionable thing to do. Tom and Barbara have left our leafy London suburbia to expand their one dog to two dogs, a donkey and several acres of vegetable garden. Not one to be outdone, I told my darling husband Jerry, in no uncertain terms, that we just had to move. Primrose (4) and Poppy (1) simply must ride ponies and have a black lab. Perhaps I could even keep chickens?
I have since been scouring pages of Country Life as well as my dear friend, Barbara’s Country Living and Jerry has finally given up arguing. WE ARE MOVING TO THE COUNTRYSIDE! However, Jerry has issued me with an ultimatum….
- Learn the ways of the countryside and….
- Try something new each week so that I can actually put all the ‘countryside’ items I have bought to good use.
I mean how hard can it be to make a pot of jam or make your own clothes – Barbara has been doing it for years! And……my Dubarry boots and never worn Barbour will be just divine against the backdrop of the Hampshire countryside.
