12TH JULY 2005
Well I am going to do it again - cut for hay. Probably the wrong call as the weather is going to change, but it might just hold out long enough for one field and we may not get the promised summer... Some hay is better than no hay?
How did it go Boffin? Hope the weather stayed fine for you.
Office politics galore in work. Don't you just love it.....
NR at least you are smart enough to keep out of it all......
Boffin.....must be hard making decsions on when to do things......with so manyt variables....
for me life is easier.its wednesday so I'm off on the bike and just pleased that its dry....
Hope you enjoyed bike ride Seren.
Another lovely day ahead
Lovely day again. Long may it last.
Hope lunch was nice RK.
I went to Lliw Resevoir before going to my parents today. What a lovely place, right on our doorstep. We are so lucky
Very stressful time this hay cutting - especially with machinery that is 30 odd years old! Never know when it is going to break down!
The weather has held better than predicted - hay now in the barn thanks Nutty harvesting anything is a fine art Seren, years of experience help - pity I don't have that!!
You have had some great days to be out running and cycling, weather is going to turn wetter now over the next two weeks - after that it is anybody's guess!!!
Don't think I have been to Lliw Reservoir Nutty, where is it?
Boff - sounds like back breaking work. Take it easy. You need loads of pie!
Lliw reservoir is just off the M4, follow signs for Felindre. Penllegaer turn off.
Rest day today. Hope to do something tomorrow.
Nope, in that case Nutty I have not been to Lliw reservoir! Loads of Pie, now there is a thought...
Last sunny day for a couple of weeks now - enjoy
Well, today was lovely here. Lets hope the bad weather doesn't last long.
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!
rain has arrived to be sure.probably because we are going to dorset to camp tomorrow.........I'm doing the Giantshead marathon tomorrow with hubby whilst 2 youngest do teh 10k........
shame about the weather as its a lovely hilly offroad run.....
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
Have a good holiday Seren.
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
Nutty it wasn't on the coast.it was at sydling north of dorchester........we ran around the giantshead
small run and swim for me this morning.gorgeous day
