New gate fixed to the top of the drive to prevent sheep wandering down after a lorry demolished the last one. Lots of strimming around the place this month and a new fibre flooring laid down in the fruit cage for weed control. Also the old chassis was moved to a new place and cleaned up.

Moved into the new Garden Room for the first time over Christmas. The house feels much more spacious now as we have doubled the downstairs space available. Family went for a long walk at Llanstefffan after Christmas. New steps, a brick wall and new stone pathway in front of the house.

Stuart managed to badly cut his fingers on the table saw resulting in 4 hours surgery to repair the damage and limited use for the next 12 weeks. We purchased an electric log splitter so will never have to buy logs to burn again. The goji berries were moved from the polytunnel to the fruit cage which is now covered with netting. Work started on building the new yurt platform. An early birthday celebration for Sowelu was enjoyed before Heather, Matt and Sowelu left to return to Costa Rica at the end of the month. We also attended the Big Cwtch Festival at the end of the month gaining a lot of interest in Stuart's woodwork. A flowering cherry tree was planted to mark the occasion of Violet's birth last year.

The new yurt field was mown and the area mapped out for the new yurt platform. The doors are finally fitted on our garden room and looking great. The order for the stained glass windows are now in place so it will be exciting to see the finished designs. We celebrated Heather's birthday with a vegan birthday cake which was delicious.
