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.

Getting nowhere, fast!

Beautiful if cold day here today but managed to get nothing one at all. Tried to get lots done but it all went either wrong, blew up, died, tried to kill me ( that was a shelf falling down.....) or in some other way injure me...or just plain not work.

Everything I tried to do failed, sometimes in a quite spectacular and alarming manner.....

Even managed to lose whole chunk of my teaching course work          and my back up media also failed to produce the, well, backup....Good job I have managed to find a backup, backup version....!

At about 6 pm last night I gave up on anything at all except, eating a meal ( cooked by CM....) drinking wine (opened and poured by CM!!) and watching a DVD with CM and CG ( Night at the Museam, very funny in a silly sort of way!)...

Decided anything else would be too risky .....I WAS planning on bottling some wine, but decided I would probably drop them all or somehow ruin the 15 l worth , if I tried.....

Anyone else ever have days where ABSOLUTELY NOTHING will go right?
