Hibernation mode continues as winter keeps her grip.
A week of not much happening apart from further conversations with DVLA (yes they have my latest reply and will respond in due course Brick Wall Fit ) also my insurance company to check I was still covered now my licence is showing as expired on the great computer in the sky. (Yes no problem, also now a note inserted in my file that I have contacted them about this.)

Wednesday was farriers day but no further bookings as they are full up so have to wait for a cancellation

Monday: First stop Park Royal, then another round the corner. Drop three went into Alperton, where usually they're fond of tipping in booking order, but not today Cool . Two small deliveries ahead of me, and I'm in as soon as they've been tipped. All these quick turnarounds leaves me well in front of my booking time at Hatfield, but they are not worrying either so theres time enough to get up to Wisbech and load one home.

Tuesday: Into the firm next door to collect my trailer, then up to Wakefield with a full load. Tip that and head into Newark Truckwash to get the outfit clean before going into Sutterton to collect a load for HQ. Get that back, then swap to an empty trailer and run back up to Sutterton to bring another one in.

Wednesday: First stop Grantham today, where despite making an effort to be up there in good time, it still takes over an hour to get tipped Sad . The effort at Grantham was to avoid lateness at Ilkeston, which I still manage, but only just. Not that it made much difference, they were busy and three and a half hours passed before I left there Fit . Now late for two drops in Nottingham, I managed to get them both off, but was left without sufficient time to get my reload out of Loughborough so it was straight home empty.

Thursday: A visit to Egham begins the trip, then up to High Wycombe for two drops on opposite sides of town. The first is no bother, but the second proves rather more challenging. Finding the gate was easy, as the notes said it was behind another firm, but the gate led into a car park. Exploring on foot revealed the company I wanted at the back of the car park, with a space that might have been big enough to turn in, but might not. A quick chat with another driver who'd clearly been before told me it was possible, so once he'd left in we went. The gate was narrow, the entry road not much wider, and getting turned in their yard only just possible, but narrow gear and a bit of care got it done. Final delivery went down to Bracknell, then it was straight home and done.

Friday: The end of my week started with a trip to Rugby, then round the M42 to Beoley. From here the next port of call was a self tip in Wednesbury, normally an easy job, but today they're busy and not coping. Six pallets take me three and a half hours to get rid of, which means, despite my best attempts the final two deliveries to Tamworth have to be aborted as I've no longer sufficient time to get them off. Drop the lorry off at Scania in Peterborough and return to HQ in their van to start my weekend Waving
