Two years before The Good Life appeared on our television screens, Jenny and her husband made the decision to leave their urban home and lifestyle to embrace a life of self-sufficiency in the Welsh Hills.

At an auction in Brecon they bought Tironnen, an old hunting lodge with outbuildings and five acres of old pasture, little knowing how their lives would be so greatly enriched by the friendliness and delightful eccentricities of the humans they met and of the animals which came to live with them.

This book recounts with humour how Jenny blundered her way up the steep learning curve of her new life.
