Hello and welcome to The Compost Bin. I'm Compostwoman and I live with my family in rural Herefordshire. We have nearly four acres of garden and woodland, all managed organically and to Permaculture principles, which we share with Chickens, Cats and assorted wildlife. We also grow a lot of our own food, run courses in all sorts of things and make a lot of compost!

I am a Master Composter and have spent more than a decade as a volunteer Community Compost adviser with Garden Organic and my local Council.
I'm a self employed Environmental Educator so I run workshops and events where I talk about compost, veg growing, chicken keeping, cooking, preserving and sustainable living. I also run crafts workshops and Forest School/outdoor play sessions in our wood.

We try to live a more self sufficient lifestyle here, as best we can, while still having a comfortable life and lots of fun.

Hmm we must have offended the Tooth Gods/Fairy here at Compost Mansions!

I had to go and have a very big filling yesterday, not a pleasant experience as I react badly to anaesthetic and am always a bit nervous about how I will be.

Compostman has to have a wisdom tooth out today and Compostgirl has another very wobbly tooth. AND Tom Kitten has a Canine about to come out!..( Shouldn't it be "Felines" for cats?)

Intercessions to the Tooth Gods/Fairy please?

  1. Oh poor you... hope you and Mr Compostman are feeling okay now? And hope the wobbly teeth stop wobbling very soon!!

    A couple of quotes that I thought fitting to include on this post...

    Some tortures are physical
    And some are mental,
    But the one that is both
    Is dental.
