Thanks for the welcome , i live in west hallam, near ilkeston. Currently my partner and i have desk jobs and im so very tired of the stress and daily travelling, i dream of a far simpler better life. i attempt to grow some veg and fruit, i have 3 dogs who do not earn their keep, lazy devils, and ive ordered a chicken coop , due in mid may, i havnt got a clue what im doing but hey!!!!! i love Scotland and feel at home when ever i visit would love a small holding but dont know if i would be any good at it, im certainly not used to hard graft stuck behind a desk all day. Im here to learn and learn and learn
