Now 28 weeks pregnant, I have to say I am starting to feel the weight gain. I am definitely bigger now than I was at the same stage with Solomon! Still ….with so much to do there is no rest for the wicked! The list of jobs is growing rather than shrinking, Daycare is a high priority to get advertised.
Currently sitting at my desk, sadly it faces a wall, but to my right I can gaze out of the window down towards our pond, a far more pleasant view than city buildings from my old offices. Farm life is a welcome change from the air conditioning and office politics I once knew.
However, today is just one of those days, loads to do but just no energy for it. In an effort to give myself a kick start I allowed myself to be mildly distracted from the churning of numbers and pushing of paper and found a quote that has given me a bit of a kick!
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” —Steve Jobs, Apple Inc. co-founder, chairman and CEO
Luke and I are very fortunate that our ‘day job’ allows us to be at home together and with our family. That is not to say it is easy, Lukes ‘day’ lately has started at 5am and ended at 1am. Our sheep have been popping out lambs almost too quickly for our limited barn space. Thankfully we have had a change in the weather for a few days and yesterday allowed us to turn out the older of our lambs in to one of the high paddocks; such a lovely site to see them bouncing around. Rixham Farm is really beginning to feel alive!!
I have been concentrating on our website more recently…. finally got the main part of it built, but still accumulating photos and changing around bits. Hopefully it will be up soon and I will direct you to it. We are now listed on a number of other websites so you can find us, including …..
we are also listed as a Care Farm Showcase on
Please do share this blog to spread the Word. We would like to increase our Daycare and due to it being slightly unconventional we need help to raise profile. The lads we have as clients already absolutely love it here and we would love for others to get the same enjoyment. With spring coming it is a great time to join the Farm team and watch how ‘Knight Farm’ will develop….
