l have been tagged.............

With a word of 'thanks' to fellow blogger, Pondside, who has tagged me for 7 facts about myself.......... so here are some very boring trivia items about me!


Rules are:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog

  1. l flew solo in a cessna 150 on my 17th birthday
  2. l am very competitive, and competed against Mark Phillips in my youth
  3. l do NOT like my Christian name
  4. l don't tolerate fools gladly and have absolutely NO time whatsoever for jumped up idiots
  5. l always say what l think
  6. l snapped my anterior cruciate ligament and tore my cartilage at the same time whilst 'skiing' down a black run - they have been repaired by the way
  7. l don't like babies
Sorry to bore you but it is all Pondside's fault!!

So my seven victims are:

Mutterings and meanderings
pig in the kitchen
around my kitchen table
yorkshire pudding
the other side of me

Please read once and destroy!

About time too, l might add!

Well about flippin' time too, l have a spare moment to float around in cyberland. Looking at my last posting date, l am am shocked at just how absent l have been. We have had Easter, albeit a wintry wonderland sort of easter, well to my mind, what can you expect when easter is propelled into March with no thought for day trippers or caravaners north of the Humber!

I feebly raise my hand and say l have been busy; we have manged to flog the stuff to a major multiple, now that has been an experience to put it mildly, the details of which l will not post up here! We have learnt over the past few years that early spring sees a trail of potential new customers heading this way looking for new products to sell, so this summer you will find mr moo's at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield. Phew, enjoy!

Easter? Well, what can l say..........yes it snowed and it was cold and it was very windy. Fortunately, the caravan parks were full over the bank holiday weekend so weekend visitors were about, it was the day trippers who stayed at home, put off, no doubt, by the dire weather warnings coming out of the Met Office! We did NOT have 10cm of snow l might add, just a brief dusting!

Our newest member of staff has just started [see photo right] and seems to be enjoying herself, always smiling as you can see. MK however is off, having passed his LGV he will be striding off into the sunset as a lorry, sorry truck driver, when he finds a job that is! The 'new' machinery is churning out a really super smooth creamy ice cream and the new flavours, crunchie cookie especially and the rhubarb and ginger are proving to be winners!

So what's next then? l have made the discovery that l have been blogging for about a year now, sad, starting out on the Country Living Site and then growing up into the proper world of blog, l have 'met' many new friends in the 'computer world' from all over the world [are there really that many sad gits out there?] and have not been shut down for inflammatory remarks! well there is time l suppose!

Here's to the next 12 months!
