Have you Met The Farmers Wife?

A great response has been received from the questions posed here last week.  I have enjoyed reading the answers so much and is such a great and interesting way to get to know followers.  If you have not already checked out The Bottom of the Ironing Basket you must.  Simone and her gorgeous blog was my inspiration for starting my own and I read it religiously, its like taking a mini break.   Getting to know followers is her idea and such a great one.

The Bottom of the Ironing Basket

For some Monday morning inspiration Donna from The Farmers Wife blog has generously given us an incite into her life.  Thank you Donna and I will have more followers answers up later in the week.
