This blog is a bit of a ramble through my life. There's a lot about quilting and textile arts, a sprinkle of my family life and some of my thoughts and ponderings. We currently live aboard an old wooden 1945 Navy boat, called MV Cerego, so you'll find me writing about that too. Welcome aboard!

Happiness is......

 This makes me happy, excited, relieved (in more ways than one!), ecstatic even!!  One of the reasons I was a little concerned about moving out to our block of land was because I didn't have one of these.

My new sewerage system and grey water system.  If you're new to this blog you may not know that here on Windyhill Farm we are a little bit primitive.  Or I like to think of it as extremely low impact.  We have a longdrop for a loo, and if you don't know what a longdrop is, well basically we poop in a hole in the ground.

(See this post for a pic of the day the dunny blew over)

But not any longer!! (Well actually, for a few more days at least).

The system above is a Natural Flow System.  It uses worms to eat the solid bits, lets the black water flow down into our bush and puts the grey water through an irrigation hose that I can place where I please.

So I get a flush toilet in my bathroom and an irrigation system for my garden in one fell swoop. 

CHAMPAGNE WILL BE SERVED!!
