Weekend entertainment.

It's the weekend, here is a lovely video from Daniel. He bought a plot of land in Ireland and is turning it into a small holding. His aim is to be completely self sufficient. He lives in a mobile home, is renovating a cottage, built a wooden cabin, has animals as pets, and grows all his own food. He doesn't post videos that often, but everyone is a little gem. 

I am busy in other places, fending off the trolls on my yoootooob channel :o) 
Enjoy your weekend. Toodle pip.   ilona

  2. I also watch this chap. Just the sound of his voice is so relaxing and I love to watch his pets too. He's building himself a beautiful small holding.

  4. Oh Ilona, Daniel is a delight! I love his message. Introverts aren't "shy," just selective. Perfect. Thanks for this video!

  5. That was a lovely video Ilona. Being an introvert myself it resonated with me. Hope you have managed to fend off the trolls on yoootooob! Have a good weekend. :)

    1. I thought the same when I watched it. A lot of compassion from a young man.

  6. Evening Ilona and everyone else. Yes i have watched Daniel's videos before and he is doing a great job and i wish him all the best with the cottage and the land. I know he has said he is behind with the cottage but i am sure he will get here in his own time. He is very inspiring. I love his channel name Mossy bottom if he still use that.
    way to go Daniel x

    1. Yes, it's still Mossy Bottom. He says there is no rush to get the cottage in order, he has the rest of his life to do it.

  7. I have been following Mossy Bottom for a few years now. He has done a wonderful job fixing up the place. I was relieved when he built the wooden cottage. The historical cottage on the property looked like a challenge to me. Glad to find someone else who appreciates his joyfulness.

    1. It's interesting watching his progress. The stone cottage is nothing more than a shell, but I am sure he will do it eventually.

  8. Thanks! I shall add him to my list of watches.

    On the you-tube comments - For some reason the trolls are even worse there than on blogs. Wonder if it is because you have to read for comprehension on a blog, where as, videos are visual and auditory? Blogs draw a higher-brow audience? Anyways, totally agree with your analysis of the situation and would like to see common sense become the norm again.

    1. I seem to attract the same regular trolls on here. A pattern emerges so I have a good idea of what will trigger them off. Blogger makes it easier to moderate so their comments don't get to see the light of day. There is a much wider audience on yoootooob. They seem to think I am talking to them personally so I am considered fair game for anyone to throw a verbal punch at.

  9. I was nodding along with him a ton. He figured it out at a younger age than I did. Don’t understand troll behavior, but I guess hurting people hurt others. I enjoy your blog - keep being you. P. S. I’m following your lead with portioning out the snacks and making them last.

  10. I found this video the other day too - what a lovely guy, and a completely accurate description of what it's like to be an introvert (& dispelling a few myths too!)

  11. Lovely peaceful lifestyle. Reminded me of Yeats' poem "I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree" which is one my favorites.
