Hello and welcome to my new blog. This is my story of making a lifelong dream a reality. Having recently moved to the beautiful Welsh countryside from the midlands, share with me the highs and lows of our new life. In March 2014 my fiancé and I, our cat Austin and Bumble the beagle, moved over 200 miles to the Carmarthenshire countryside to start our new life as smallholders. The 200 year old stone and slate cottage we bought was damp and cold, and the four acres of land were overgrown. What were we thinking! Why not join us on our journey and see what we can make of this beautiful place.
