No a lot happened this week. no change there.
Saturady was a Milo and Belle day
On Tuesday if I remember it rained, or was that Wednesday?
It stayed dry for our wander around Tewkesbury mid morning Wednesday but just go back to the car in time.
A bit of light weeding and dead heading for Thursday. _________________ Squarepeg ()
Thursday was load milling wheat on a farm near Retford, over the Pennines to a mill in Stockport, tip that, onto Seaforth Docks for a load of soya back to the yard and home.
Friday, repeat Thursday though the wheat came form a farm near Worksop and onto ADM mill in Toxteth. Back to Seaforth for more soya and home.
God was looking kindly on me as although I left Liverpool at 4pm dreading the worst ref Friday traffic, never came off cruise control all the way back over the M62 _________________ Better to wear out than go to rust.

The fates smiled on you that day for sure BBD
Monday: A defective trailer light saw our fitter getting out of bed to remedy the situation, then I was Harlow bound, just not quite as early as I'd have liked. Being later there meant waiting in the queue to tip, so whats normally a ninety minute turn around took more than three hours this time . Back to Guyhirn, swap trailers and take a load to Spalding, where the wind made trailer curtains viscious and in cooperative. So much so it took two of us and a forklift to get one side shut . Reload Kings Lynn and back to HQ.
Tuesday: Tip Harlow and Stowmarket, reload Felixstowe back to Guyhirn.
Wednesday: Back to Harlow, straight through to Felixstowe to reload then return to Guyhirn.
Thursday: See Wednesday.
Friday: First drop Egham, then down to Basingstoke. After some confusion over a missing pallet I head up to Theale, then run in to Hounslow to tip the final few pallets. Straight home empty to beat the bank holiday rush _________________ Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.
