I'm afraid this is the last post on this account. Matt died suddenly on Friday 7th December of a massive heart attack. Since then, there has been an outpouring of love and affection for him on Facebook, Twitter, and in person, from our family and friends and the wider community in which we now live.
Thank you for following Matt's adventures in Kent and, latterly, his adventures in smallholding. If you enjoyed them half as much as he did, you are very fortunate.
For its first six years, this blog was "written" by my Westie Pup, Deefer but now on reaching its 30,000th page-view she has passed the keyboard to me. It remains a light hearted look at the lives of our family, human and animals first in Faversham, Kent, then through our recent 'up sticks' move to County Roscommon, Republic of Ireland where we have gutted and rebuilt a farmhouse and are now starting a small holding.
