We’ve been making important changes to The Big Garden & Croft and our other websites.
As some of you will already be aware, The Hebridean Woolshed website recently got messed up by an automated plugin update, and was knocked out of action. In any event, the site badly needed an update – of content, aesthetics, structure ; and as we’ve been looking for ways to simplify life, we took the decision not to reinstate it from backup (no simple task, it seems!), but rather to author a completely new, simpler set of pages under the umbrella of The Big Garden & Croft . Which puts the Hebridean Woolshed back where it originally started, fifteen or so years ago. The domain hebrideanwoolshed.scot now redirects to the Woolshed page on this website. So, the Hebridean Woolshed is on the move!
We posted, just a few weeks ago, that we would no longer be making preserves specifically to sell. We have therefore removed the Preserves page from this website. But we’ve also removed the pages for Hatching Eggs and Hebridean Sheep. These, too, are lines of business that we’ve now firmly committed to down-sizing – which we’ll do progressively over the next three years or so.
These are all steps aimed at reducing our workload – to a level appropriate to the dignity of our ages and our rising hopes for an increase in repose. Or to put it another way, to take life a bit easier as we get older. *
We’ll be posting more about these changes – and others – in the coming weeks and months, as decisions made become actions taken.
