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.

Back on the bulk for two days! thumbs up

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 Shocked Shocked Shocked Very Happy thumbs up

The fates smiled on you that day for sure BBD Laughing

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 Sad . 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 Shocked . 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 Waving
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.
Its about learning to dance in the rain.
