Death and Covid rules and Regulations.

We just asked for the cheapest it really was what Dad would have wanted I can't think of anything worse than Coffin shopping and it actually looked O.K.
Have mine planned, hole dug lined with OSB covered with a couple of plant pots on top. Cardboard coffin with some Argos stickers on it for good effect. Heathen, so know religious hoo ha just a few words from my son to say I tried to live life to the full and only disappointment is maybe missed some of it.
Rather put the money behind the bar for the knees up.

Sold a field and the day after completion the new owner buried his mother in it!
I was honoured to have been invited and as funerals go it was as good as it could have been. A bit odd with it being a field I had worked in all my life and had a lot of my own memories in there.

I've told my lot that when my time comes I am to be buried in my field very deep (I don't want to be found) and no marker is needed. I understand those left behind need/want somewhere to go where they think the deceased are resting but "Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep".
Go and stand on any of the local hills looking over the plain, that is where I will be.

Never thought of that going to dig it twice the depth now. Great idea!

The incessant and extreme wet conditions are now presenting huge challenges for every farm’s spring agronomy and cropping decisions.

Plans are being urgently reevaluated and rejigged to set priorities for treatment, with a watchful eye on deadlines for timely spring crop establishment when a window allows. And all against a backdrop of potential damage to soil structure to fields from traveling in waterlogged conditions.
