Like many farms around the country, anything that can be painted has been painted and an awful lot of stuff has been tidied up.

We have a storeroom which my wife Ann decided to tackle. For my own part, I'd have been happy enough to change the door to open out rather than in; I'd reckon it would have been good to hold another 10 years' accumulations, but she will not be deterred when she gets something into her head.
