First snows of Winter 2019 at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow

November seems to be much wetter and windier than my memories of crisp leaves of “back in the day” – no Forever Autumn here and the first snow of Winter 2019 arrived early..

it went in a flash but brought back memories of earlier this year..

I think we are in for a hard Winter folks


Amazing what you can buy in Costco these days

Well I went to Costco recently and I was amazed at how much Christmas was happening already – scary indeed. But I did laugh when I came to the fish counter with all the smoked salmon and prawns and found this..

it brought back happy memories of holidays by the sea and squid inking at me if I came to close – yes I know this is Octopus!

Little things mean a lot at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow

Sometimes in life you have to say goodbye to things and people that you really don’t want to and it was a very sad day when we sold these two little mares but they have gone to a super home where they will be shown and appreciated as much as we did…

A bit like X factor… in no particular order memories of their time with us…

Memorial service for our dear Mother

Regular readers will recall that hubby lost his Mother and me a Mother in law as well as Grandmother to the children about 9 weeks ago.

Well bless her she was not religious at all and didn’t believe in God or attend Church and donated her body to Science. She didn’t like fuss at all so we kept the Memorial very simple and it was simply beautiful. we received so many phone calls the next day saying how beautiful it was, I think she would have been pleased.

In her memory we are installing a Rose Garden and attendees donated Rose bushes in pots rather than cut flowers – here are a few… Rest in Peace Mother.
