My Latest Blog Moving Clay , Safety For Toads & Tractors.

Moving Clay , Safety For Toads & Tractors.

Well, I have to say I feel shattered.  I din't take a day off last week. Saturday I was Clearing Japanese Knotweed ( )  (Unfortunately I didn't take before pics) I have cleared a fair part of the area but there is still much to be done.

The Mound of Clay

 Sunday I was busy helping a friend move a huge  mound of  clay.

Pete Enjoying His ride on the Tractor.

We started to wheel barrow the stuff  but the weight of the wheelbarrow coupled with the distance, which was just under a 1/4 of a mile, was just too much. Luckily we discovered that the guy in the house up the hill had a tractor/lawnmower with trailer.

He let us use the tractor thankfully. This speeded things up no end but it still took us until  5:30 in the evening to clear all the clay.
Whilst moving the clay we found a little toad, He was placed in a safe place in the garden for him to be so he wouldn't be harmed by us on the tractor.

Flaky To Smooth Paint

I've been busy painting doors this week alongside other jobs .
I wanted to Illustrate the process .

Firstly the door needed to be sanded  off to get rid of the flaking varnish on the outside.  I then wiped over with turpentine.

The inside was painted, so it needed to be sanded to allow the undercoat to adhere to it well. Again after sanding it was wiped over with turpentine followed by a coat of undercoat.

Outside of doors Primed & Undercoated

Applying Gloss with Brush

The final coats will be Gloss Paint it will need at least two coats to cover the undercoat.

My Likes

I titled this "My Likes" as I want to keep this post as positive as possible and give you all some information about me.

Firstly, I like good weather, don't we all. Sunshine, fresh air etc. It just makes me happier than  dull weather. I also enjoy a good bonfire in the evening when the weather and situation are suitable. I enjoy walking in the countryside and observing nature, it gives me much pleasure


Mmmm, we all like food, but I have a vegetarian diet. I don't eat Fish, Chicken, Beef or Pork. I do Drink milk and eat eggs though. There aren't that many veggie food that I won't eat really, but i'm not so keen on Twigglets and sharp citrus fruits. I also have a sensitive pallet when it comes to hot and spicy foods.

There are too many foods to list that i like but here is a basic list of things that I do like.

Pasta                           - Prefer White Egg Pasta but any white is fine. Tray Bakes are good.
Potatoes                      - Mashed or Boiled or Steamed.
Tomatoes                    -Tinned and Fresh but Fresh Organic is obviously the best)
Tomatoe Sauce
Eggs                           - Free Range)
Bread                         - I prefer Soya & Linseed bread great for making Eggy Bread.
Milk                           - I prefer non Homoganised Organic, any will do though.
Meat Replacement
Products                   - I do eat these as I need protein and this is a simple solution for my hosts.
Mushrooms               - Button or Chestnut, but they taste great if they are Fresh and Raw.
Baked Beans             - A staple of mine for some time now, very handy if there is nothing else about.
Salads                       - I'll eat most veggie salads.
Green Olives             - Preferably Pitted or Stuffed
Cheese                     - Mature White Cheddar is My Fave, though I do like fruity stiltons too.
Bannanas                  - Is my favourite fruit.
Yoghurts                   - Love to eat this but must check labels as some contain gelatin and sacharin.
Courgettes                - Great in tomatoe pasta dishes.

As I said food is a massive subject and too many foods to list hopefully gives you some Idea.

I am heading towards the self sufficiency thing and hope I am able to grow some of my own foods in the future.


Now I do enjoy a cigarette and have been smoking for a long time. Hopefully I'll give up one day but I beleive, when you are really ready and able, you will give up. It is a very personally individual thing. For now I generally smoke hand rolling tobacco, I do like a boxed cigartette every now and then.  I will be looking into growing my own tobacco at some point as I want to rely on the system as little as possible. I will always respect a hosts wishes if they ask me not to smoke in their homes.


I love to drink coffee  and it goes with my smoking habit very nicely when I'm taking a break. I will drink tea if there is no coffee available. I'm not sure whether smoothies are food or drink but I do like a good smoothie.

Beer & Wine  at the end of a hard day it's nice to just chill out  and have a drink.  My Beer of choice is usually a Real Ale apposed to a lager.  Red wine Is always good, though I will drink white on occasion.


 I have a wide and somewhat eclectic taste in music.  Usually it's what my mood suits, often I use music as a form of Motivation , Meditation and or Relaxation.  Like the food subject it is to big to list my likes, so below is a sample of things I do like currently.  I hope you enjoy my likes and have a little snapshot of me.

Peace, Blessings, Namaste.

Hallway Decorating at The Mayors House

I have been working hard, but not over doing it. I'm decorating the Mayors House, below are some pictures of the patching up I'm doing in the hallway.

Electrical Channels were badly plastered and needed making good by sanding, filling and further sanding.  Followed by some embossed paper and painting white.

 Paper was coming of the walls, a quick cut and patch repair  was done here.

More Electric Channeling to be made good.

 Paper peeled of  to enable the filling of the  badly done plaster.

Interesting Finial, looks a bit like a Gargoyle.

 Filled plaster work to be sanded.

 Sanded plaster work to be filled

 Dust and muck to be cleared away

 After all the sanding of plaster the mirror was dusty so I couldn't resist.
