Description

Every day Shon goes out to plough the fields, while his wife Sian works at home in the farmyard. Shon feels he does all the work, so his wife suggests they swap work for the day. Shon looks forward to an easy time of it, with very little to do, but he is in for a surprise... This well-known European folk tale carries a message for us all: count your blessings, and stick to what you do best.
