Hi there, my name is Kathy and I am married to Neil.  We moved from a very urban environment west of London in January 2010, to live in a very rural hamlet in Somerset.  The house we bought dates back to 1760 and needed, or still needs, quite a lot of work to refurbish.  We have been at it since we moved here and it does seem never ending, but that is probably because we are working on the outside at the same time.  We have 3.5 acres including 2 acres of woodland.  The land was just a field when we moved here, but we have put in fruit trees, a fruit cage full of plants, 16 raised vegetable beds and various areas of lawn which are easier to maintain than scrubland full of weeds.  We try to grow as much fruit and vegetables for our own consumption as possible.  We also have 14 hens who provide us with lovely eggs on an ongoing basis. We also have an unfinished stable block to convert into workshops and sheds etc.

I am also a complementary therapist and regularly see clients here at home for Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Indian Head massage etc.  We bought the house with the idea of setting up as a B&B (Bed and Breakfast), which we did commencing in November 2011. It’s been a slow start but is gradually picking up, and some guests come for a therapeutic break, combining B&b with therapies.

I blog once or twice a week, about things that are happening in our village,our lives, our garden or surroundings.

I hope  you enjoy reading my blog.  Thank YOu
