was anticipating having to go get Clara for a few hours today, so made sure all the 'nasty' bits - read 'icy as **** bits ' were cleared this morning
and the downhill run into the house, which has a bit of a camber .... in the wrong direction



still 3" sat on the drive .... and can stay there 'til it rains sunday evening - I hope, if they're right ... pushed enough white shite about for now.
was, as you say, very pretty .... from the warmth of the house!!

let's hope that's the lot for now...... thank God we ain't had what the yanks have had, or the snow shovel'd have given way to me 7ft bucket and blade

all gone here this morning - no surprise as it was +5C overnight and lashing down
.... but not before i'd cleared a black ribbon, down one side of the drive, for a set of wheels, for Pam's return yesterday evening.
Been in Plymouth, most the week, child minding, after Josh's child minder let 'em down, so missed all the white shite action.... except for a run down the Cresta last night

been some bit cold here over the weekend, for sure .








and that's after a day thawing enough to separate itself from the bowl
Been glorious here today though, after the rain stopped, the fog cleared and the clouds buggered off ....

Gave the patch another going over with the roller for an hour, or so, yesterday afternoon ......





amazing how much it continues to go down, after the snow and a night's hard rain .....
pity the 12t tanker driver, delivering the kero, had to scow it round this morning, instead of a shunt to turn ..... left some 'scars' behind him .....
gonna need another going over where he's been, but 'sposed to pee down again for 48 hrs, so could be a Sunday job

finally got pissed off with the marauding sheep earlier in the week, when 9 of the bloody things attacked Pam's flower boxes on the patio ... been putting 'em back in the field a couple of times a day....but enough was enough
So went in search of where the ****ing things were escaping from

apart from a lot of walking around the wood, it didn't take a lot of finding

the guy who owns 'em had said he'd cured the issue - NOT ---- chucking a couple of pallets in front of the scrub where the hole was, was as effective as putting a couple of elastoplasts on the Titanic

so cut all the scrub back to fence line ... which was buggered and re-positioned his pallets, together with all the scrub and anything else i could lay me hands on and blocked their escape route



It's slowed the buggers up ...... 'til this morning, when I watched three of the sods jump the fence .... not been back though since they got herded back lunch-time.
will be surprised if they ain't there in the morning ..... gonna have to raise the fence a good foot in one spot to stop the sods

Been a beautiful day here today though and dry enough to consider AND actually paint t'other side of Pam's gates .... hopefully they ain't gonna have too rough a night ... 'sposed to be great again tomorrow




remains to be seen what they'm like in the cold light of day/morning, tomorrow
Will be glad to get 'em off me bench

well the bloody frost had me paint ..... more of a satin/matt finish this morning ........ and five bloody woollie backs on the lawn

Time for another prowl round the woods, see if the buggers have created a.n.other escape route

after a sheep free day and no sign of the buggers anywhere in the fields, I thought they'd all been removed to the lambing sheds

'til about 4.30 when they all suddenly appeared again and were literally queuing up to jump the fence beside the drive, for some nice green grass .....

having rounded up ten of the bloody things and shot 'em back through the gate into the field, I'd barely turned my back and there were two of 'em back FFS !!

words are going to be had tomorrow ... enough is enough

Had Rob the owner here again yesterday afternoon .... and he's not long gone from here this morning, after rounding up the offending woolies and taking them with him ....
hopefully no more grief .... but'll need to sort a couple of fence points they've forced their way through/over ...
if they couldn't clear 'em they were battering 'em .........
never seen sheep like 'em .. bloody vandals

Sounds like you need to start going on the offensive - electric fence!
