So this hasn’t been written by Chris but is by me. It is my (tongue in cheek) perspective on his perspective on moving to a smallholding in Ireland (with land for a runway for his model plane).
So see below, item 1! The Rock Crawler.
I can guarantee he will be found quite frequently in our cottage, or just outside, sat in a chair, with FPV goggles on, driving this redcat around. (J loves it too).
Night driving below:
Then: Item 2! model aeroplanes! Again, he will be found in our field with FPV goggles on, flying aeroplanes (in line of sight) on his (soon to be) mown out and marked runway.
Item 3! Knobbly tyres!
Knobbly tyres! For off roading up the field and basically being able to drive anywhere! They make a fantastic sound when you’re driving…like a hum…he loves his tyres.. (I like them too). You can tell wherever we are where there’s a field or some rough ground he’s dying to drive over it.
I may never see him. Haha. Then there’s the other toys such as the mega strimmer, chain saw, the tractor we may purchase! The list goes on.
Of course there’s also these:
Joking aside, he’s a fantastic gardener and such a hard working, friendly, practical man. He will be able to grow his flowers again (he loves growing cut flowers) and have a mega veg patch (I love this part too). We’re also planning fruit trees, to have chickens and probably other livestock (we will decide definitely over the next few months). I’m very glad I’m doing this with him not only because he is who I want to do life with, but also, he is so practical! He can make things (quite complicated things), mend things, turn his hand to just about anything really. He is a very good person to go to a cottage in a wood and field with. Especially when life probably isn’t going to be that easy practically speaking! In God we trust.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)
I may actually get him to write a post and get the right “man’s” perspective soon. That alright Mr R?
I just want to say as well, I know his perspective involves a lot more than the above, a lot more. But they do make his life fun (and involve a lot of skill too).
Over and out.
