I used to tell my 2 children this when they were growing up. Its a neat little aphorism which cannot be argued with – or at least couldn’t be by them at the time.
Since we moved back to my wife’s family home (farm) and particularly since I retired from my job as an NHS Consultant I have come to realise that the neat aphorism is very true.
We came back here in 2007 ostensibly to look after Shelly’s ageing and increasingly frail mother but in reality took on the task of renovating a 150 year old cottage and maintaining 10 acres of farmland. There is never a lack of things to do. Hopefully what we’ve done will get documented here.
