Our Little Gardener

Last week the vegetable beds needed digging up so we hired our own private gardener to do the work.....

Wee Granny

This is JT's Great Granny. 

JT at G.Granny's (28) edited

She is affectionately known as 'Wee Granny' by some of her great grandchildren because of her stature.  She will be 91 in November and has 35 great-grandchildren.  We called to visit her yesterday.

'Wee Granny' is very hard of hearing, so she shouts very loudly and this scared Jacob. 

But then she produced cars.............

Tractor Troubles

We bought JT a tractor when we were away on our wee break. It is providing hours of fun (albeit in minutes at a time).

There is just one problem......

the slurry tanker keeps disconnecting from the tractor.

Then when he pulls the tractor the tanker doesn't come with it......
