Smile life is not meant to be taken too seriously ! Lifes what you make it and if bad stuff happens (which it does to us all!) then as they say what doesn't kill you makes you strong and SMILE it could be better it could be worse who cares so long as you look forward not back !!

Batty Buffalo

Born in Singapore then moved to England.Finally living in Ha'il Northern Saudi Arabia ! The Visa photo didn't scare anyone enough to refuse entry ! Letting the roots grow more so can be half blonde half (I forgotten what colour I am natural bet its grey by now !!

Can I come home with you !

I adore cats and this farm seems to be in the middle of a kitten plauge ! Not allowed to have one as hubby worried there are no vets out here in sticks so if cat got ill or needed treatment it would mean and hours flight to Riyadh or a one way ticket . Niether is a realistic option so I will just keep giving them food and the farm workers giving them milk !!

Lots to do

Sam making friends as usual !

Its not all sand

Heres Stuart checking the cut Alfafa.Oppersite this its is a large ridge of sand dunes! Two completely differant scenes so close together ! Farming out here has been amazing and we are learning all the time.

The Arabs on the farm are my eldest sons true love he wants to go back to England and train as a farrier. In the mean time till his 16 he is working on the small stud farm here and loving every minute


Just cos theres a mountain in front of where you want to go doesn't mean you have to stop trying to get there!!
