Morning - And what a lovely morning it has turned out to be, nice to be proved wrong occasionally!

Last bit of early baling nearly done, then fingers crossed we will have another spell of good weather in July / August so I can cut the main hay field.

Hope you got all the baling done Boffin.  The rain arrived, as you said it would!

Morning

Running in the rain is not all bad Seren, at least you keep cool - it is hanging around for the start in the rain which gets me! Hope you all have a good time

The last field was more to clear it of reeds rather than for winter feed - got all the bales shifted off the field though thanks Nutty Finished about half nine last night in the rain - now have a stack of around 200 bales next to the veg plot all intended to rot down over the next few years - will make some good fibre for the soil eventually

Well done Boffin.  Time to put your feet up?

Friday - thank goodness!

Glad weather is suiting the hay making Boff.

Enjoy your hols Seren.

How is the leg these days NR?

All good with me apart from a head cold today. Hence I'm sat on the settee all day today with my feet up hoping to shake it. Using the time to plan our holidays in the Norfolk Broads in August.

had a great couple of days in Dorset....the bad weather avoided us and we ran in glorious sunshine.........a really well organised race but the terrain was very tough under foot......rocky and rutted for most of the way........

but I would definitely recommend it for a tough scenic offroad marathon......boys enjoyed the 10k as well

Rest up RK.  Enjoy planning holiday.

Seren - well done.  Is that the marathon that is along the Jurassic coast?  I used to run some of it as part of my training as I lived in Weymouth for quite a while. 

Leg isn't the best but did a small run this morning and swam this evening.  Lovely out there now

Afternoon

Sounds quite a tough run Seren - well done

head cold all better now Kev? colds can be miserable as you are not 'poorly' enough to get the sympathy you probably could do with!

Good you can still run on your leg Nutty

Various Uni open days around now with Boff Jnr - scary how the time flies!

SEren - the clue was in the name!!  Lovely part of  Dorset.  Hope you enjoyed your recovery swim.

Good luck to Boff Jnr.  Where is he hoping to go?  To study what?

Swam this evening

Had a lovely 7 mile walk last night upto sunset. Enjoyed that.

RK - glad you are better.  Enjoy the weekend.  Laugharne is lovely.

Went to Bath today to meet an old friend.  Lovely, sunny day there.

Afternoon

Weekend looks fairer than today Kev - hopes it is nice for you

Boff Jnr has his heart set on Computer Science Nutty - probably Birmingham is in the lead at the moment.

It is fair to say he is very excited by the prospect; good for him to have a focus to keep him going through his studies.

Morning

Certainly time consuming Seren, however it is an important choice, so the more knowledge he has the better informed his choice will be.

Split the ram lambs from their mums yesterday - we have a farm of bleating now! We are actually planning on a rare family holiday (first one in five years) to the sun in Spain for a week on Monday; a very brave friend is going to farm sit for us!!!

Good luck to your sons too Seren.

It felt autumnal outside today

Weather is a bit grim.
