Musings From Morndyke

Life on the Funny Farm

by Patricia Phillips

An anecdotal retelling of the life of an ex-teacher who has chosen to live amongst the animals in her care on her farm in North Yorkshire. Life is never straight forward or easy when animals and children are involved. Couple that with a husband who is a born and bred Yorkshire farmer, then it is bound to get more complicated. Follow the highs and lows of Tricia Phillips' life as she survives day to day on her journey out of the classroom into the world of setting up a glamping business and farming a small farm in the White Rose country around Thirsk in North Yorkshire.

This is a short compilation of blogs written through the summer of 2017, detailing what farming and living in rural North Yorkshire is like. Inspired by the work of James Herriot, the anecdotal tales are a mix of humour and pathos, with a touch of reality thrown in for good measure.

Morndyke is the place to be

This is a light hearted read which is written with love and humour. It's a very honest account of what it is like to share your life, and in some instances your home, with animals who do not understand or follow house rules. It is sad in places but you sense that none of the animals are ever truly gone from morndyke.
This is clearly written by someone who loves animals and the great outdoors, muck and all. I have really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to future installments.

Looking forward to the next installment!

Couldn't put this down and finished it far to quickly! Being a 'towny' I have very limited experience of life in the country let alone a farm and I loved Patricia's insight into every day life! Very funny and heart warming too. My only negative - too short! :-)
