About Us

I've had this blog for months now and have only just remembered to get round to writing this part!

I'm Sophie, and The Bearded Wonder is Chris.
We have been together 6 years, engaged for 5 (we will get round to it eventually! Money permitting!)
I am 22 and he is 34 

We have just moved to the North East of England in a small village on a huge hill (sooo windy!) and we are determined to be as self sufficient as possible. This blog follows our adventures on trying to make the dream a reality (Think "The Good Life" but with a tiny bit more money than Tom and Barbara, and better access to google)

This is our empire, it's a nice size in an L shape, but there are a hundred problems at the minute. Half of it isn't even grass, just weeds, and it makes for a really lumpy and bumpy garden and hard as hell to dig out as the roots are so deep. The fences are far too short, they do a terrible job of blocking the wind and fall over at the drop of a hat, so they are on the "to fix" list.

I make as many things as i can, if i can make it, then i don't buy it.
I have lots of goals for the year, including all handmade gifts, making as many clothes as i can and knitting and crocheting socks , scarves, jumpers etc. The garden goals will have to be extended for 2016 too, it is going to take a lot of time to get it the way we want it.

 Well...i think that has covered everything. If you would like to know more, let me know :)
