It used to be so much better when Ruth would leave them the odd sandwich (all of her sandwiches were), or sling a pizza in the oven and remember those good old days when there was always a pot of soup on the cooker?
Of course those were the days, when Ruth was a working farmer. Does anybody know what Ruth is, these days - keep your suggestions clean please.
When young, keen Ruth first came on the scene, determined to be a working farmer, rather than a Jill-type farmer’s wife, it was an interesting story. (Implies no criticism of traditional farmers’ wives: I am descended from them, and know how difficult it would be for anybody to be one now, on a family farm). These days though, it is hard to see the point. At any rate, if there is one, I’m missing it.
I think Jill deserves a final warning. If i can get one for writing ‘clearly’ on ML and Jill has ‘clearly’ deserted her post betwixt sink & cooker, time to boot the old boot out.
Then the dopes can eat at TB every night as they trough their way through the thousands owed by Kenyun.
Was that clever writing tonight by Broderick wots isname, or just a list of the Dopey’s parental failings writ large?
Oh, when I have the time and space and brain and sufficient oomph - oomph in short supply right now - I feel that a magnificent tapestry cushion design with a suitably Archers themed border and dirty gurt letters for
would be a Good Thing to unleash upon the world. Bit of a limited market, probably.
Do you mean both working famer and traditional farm wife? If so, yes, I do know people who do both. And sometimes another job as well. Everyone on a modest-sized farm round here needs to be an income generator, that’s all. Even Jill branched into holiday cottage rentals.
I wasn’t sure. But I thought if it was about being both a farmer and a farmer’s wife it was a good point.
I even know farming couples now who both have jobs off-farm, sometimes quite demanding ones. They are hill farmers rather than cattle farmers/arable though. So farm incomes are especially dire, but there are long periods when the sheep pretty much fend for themselves.
