Today, I went to the scattering of my aunt's ashes. Is that what you call it? A scattering? I don't think it has a name and I don't think there was to be much of a ceremony. You may remember I posted about Aunt Nesta's Treasure.
Aunt Nesta's wish was to be scattered in the same place as her husband Alistair who died back in 2002. (I promise this is not a morbid post). They had been together for almost 60 years... can you imagine, 60 years with the same person? They had no children so had devoted themselves to their own interests and each other. How completely they lived for each other was apparent in Aunt Nesta's desolation after the death of Uncle Alistair. Alistair had been a professor of chemistry at Oxford University, Nesta was also a chemist but worked for a long while as a librarian in the Bodleian. Their house was full of books and papers... when I say full... I mean FULL. They had long ago filled every shelf, every nook, crannie, cupboard and box, and a…
It's exciting this time of year, the garden is lush, the veggies are starting to bear fruit and we have a broody hen!

If you're thinking of taking on a Smallholding or trying to be self sufficient and go off grid, then you absolutely need this. A self sufficient life is challenging at the best of times but having one or more of these skills will help enormously.
Don't forget Technobillies will go off line later this year and the blog will only be available as a Vlog on YouTube so do please subscribe to the channel. At the moment the short films are being released very quickly, sometimes 2 a week. That's only because this is a busy time of year and with the lockdown I had more time on my hands. I think they will settle down to one a week over time. But they are all fairly short, I aim to keep them under 10 minutes, so perfect watching on your tea break.
Enjoy. And thank you for watching.
