passed my CBT, so no independently mobile   ;D
Please excuse my ignorance but what does CBT stand for? T - I guess that is for Test?

Compulsory Basic Training - it's the first part of a provisional motorcycle licence, that allows a learner motorcyclist to go out on his/her own, with L plates.

Congratulations Cameron.

Spent the morning and early afternoon tussling with moochmarketing paperwork; so cold in the caravan, I took Smokey for a longrein to warm up. It's been a beautiful day, but bitterly cold. Worked out the paperwork now so will crack on with it after dinner.

after the usual in the morning we went to the pictures -  to see an absolutely crazy animation from Belgium with subtitles - but so worth seeing, all the audience were rolling on the floor laughing, it's called "A town called panic" ;D ;D ;D :&> then made potato salad, of course from our own tatties and onions  and the last cucumber :'( :yum: then had a go at puff pastry, still waiting for the outcome ;D :&>

Didn't do the paperwork - read my Jilly Cooper novel instead  ;D Broke the ice on the water buckets this morning - it's sooooo cold. Bertie Kitten slept under the duvet lst night. I think he's decided semi-feral is OK in summer - house cat mode in winter  :cat:

We got our calves!!!! They're lovely and quite calm although I can hear them bellowing now. They've had a long day - loaded at 3pm yesterday, we picked them up at 9.30ish this morning and brought them home. They loaded and unloaded like a dream. They've had something to eat and a drink and a poo and a chat, so we'll see what tomorrow brings.

moved what felt like about a thousand sheep.  planted couple of hundred onion sets, started an asparagus bed, made spicy beetroot and coconut soup, fed all the animals and 'spent' all my tesco vouchers before they change 4:1 to 3:1 - now exhasuted and if i can find my specs i plan to settle down with my gardeners world mag and a glas of vino!

Did even less today. Last day of holiday and feeling very relaxed.

Went and had lunch at my favourite cafe (OH hates it so I spent a luxurious half hour on my own reading a glossy gardening mag).

Spent a frustrating hour and a half trying to get our printer to network to both our computers. Turns out it was just a button press on the printer side. OH discovered it quite by accident and now can't remember what button he pressed :-)) but at least it's done.

Cut down an old past-it japonica that was here when we arrived. Ditto gone-over Hebe bush.

Pulled up all the old tomato plants out of the polytunnel and all the old stuff in pots dotted around the place.

Ahhh - finished ironing and cooked supper. Poor OH is not well. He's got this week what I had last week so he has my every sympathy!!!!

Just work :-( but at least we are only £400M out now instead of £1.8bn. My mum had a bad though- we have 2 goats visiting, they arrived on Tuesday to stay and get mated by the billy. This morning the littler one was scouring, and she died by lunchtime. It awful when any animal dies, but this wasn't even ours! Horrible!

Baby ducks, chickens, ducks all fed and let  out, old Hester the same, cat has gone out too. Off to take dogs out via shops for dog food. Will be walking dogs in rain today, then taking wee one out on his own for training.  Went to my trainer on Thursday so need to keep up the momentum this time. Let the older one off with too much and he runs riot on the shoot now unless kept on a long line. See you in 4 hours  ;) ;D
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
