I start this blog with a picture of a slurry tanker. A nice full slurry tanker in fact.
Hubby has just gone to find somewhere to spread it as the contents are very strong! The smell made me realise how true to life the aroma in Yorvik Viking Centre is. Pooooooooo.
On a more serious note, the septic tank was bursting out all over, not nice, so, & this is one of the advantages of being married to a farmer, is that they are used to nasty smells & doing unspeakable things with their hands. Only problem as in afore mentioned paragraph, the stuff is too strong for grasses so....any suggestions?
Today the colours have been really vivid. spring seems to be racing ahead with no looking back. Any rain promised last night & this morning came to nothing, more of a rain tease of overcast skies, damp atmosphere & that was it. No puddles, no slicked down dust, no wetness. OK out there, who has got the rain & does anyone know a really good rain dance?
From my brief blog of excitement this morning, you will have gathered that l am off until Saturday for a few days rest spite from the asylum. We have stopped in the same small hotel before, the views are to die for, the food great & it's totally isolated being on the far side of lake Windemere, not far from Beatrix Potter's house so no noise apart from lambs, the birds & hubby snoring!
When our main business enterprise was dairy farming any breaks or holidays had to fall round the farming calender of turn out, silaging, harvest & drilling now it revolves around the tourist season as well. We have for the past few years managed to escape in January or February & again in September for jolly little jaunts far enough away that we can't be called back to change a fuse. Hubby is very choosy where he actually goes. The destination will not do if it has any of the following criteria; more than 10 rooms, all inclusive, evening entertainment, holiday reps. We do Trip Advisor & internet. The same thing applies here, though we have another add too no ties required.
ps: this may sound really corny, but thanks for the comments about the site, l am getting my head round it all now so l might be able to help on easy set up problems for blogs.
pps: that magazine article [remember from the dark side] has come out today, without [praise the lord] any pictures of little old me, phew, all that face pulling really paid off. Stephen is the replacement sitting with his heifers holding a tub of ice cream.
