the combine is still rolling

On the farm today things are better, everyone is busy and not just filling in time, the combine started again mid-afternoon and is still working. The young pigs [already sold] weighed today and are gaining a pound a day [450grams] nicely, but in the house it is not going so well – our bathroom light is broken. The bulb went last weekend and the new bathroom light [specially fitted last year] is stuck so fast the glass bowl will need breaking in order to replace the bulb which of course at the moment no one has either the time or the inclination to do. So it is back to the old days – bathing by candlelight – nevertheless  21st Century plumbing is wonderful.
