Rebalancing

On Sunday I made a very important decision.

I chose to go out in the boat.

When I was first asked whether I wanted to go boating, I declined. I had jobs to do, you see.

In truth, I can always find jobs to do.

And that is the problem. I have fallen into the trap of prioritising jobs over leisure. Every time.

But not anymore. There is going to be more leisure time in my life. And the jobs.. well, the jobs can (mostly) wait.

Paying the price

One of the past owners of our land used to keep a house cow which he milked every day.

I think this is very impressive. I also think keeping a house cow is not for us, no matter how amazing the milk tastes.

All is not lost though as our local shop now sells Bella Vacca milk*. This product tastes and looks like milk did when I was a kid. It also is sold in recyclable glass bottles. A total win, right?

Yes, it is expensive, but the man and I think it is absolutely worth it.
