Welcome to Country Realist!

I’ll be talking about life in the country as it really is.  It’s wonderful but it isn’t all sunshiney meadows and cute lambs.  This site is a work in progress (not to mention an enormous learning curve) but there’ll be posts on everything under the sun, from baking mistakes and the pain-in-the-a**se that is a Rayburn, to the glory of chickens:  If it happens in our part of the country you’ll be able to read about it.

The aim is to share with you the highs and the lows, the mistakes I make, and the sheer joy of living in God’s Own Country – the Peak District.
