    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, on full lock.....
    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

    posted this yesterday evening ..... but not here this morning .... so here it is again

    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

    Your neighbour needs to learn about consequences - like paying for damaged garden etc.

    I sold all my sheep last year as I was fed up with them, but I always kept my fences secure so that they were only hassle to me.

    We have an adjacent field that is not ours and is the other side of a stream. On four recent occasions the wife has been walking the dog and heard a sheep in distress, turns out it has it's head stuck in stock fencing, which actually takes some releasing. On the last occasion she had to ring me for help. It was a close run thing whether I'd have to cut the fence as I couldn't get it's ears back through without an enormous effort.

    Got a phone call from a dog walker yesterday saying yet again it was stuck assuming it was ours. Field owner lets out the keep - I know who the owner is but not his tenant. I had to put on my stern face and say not my sheep, not my field, not my fence, go speak to the land owner as it's not my problem. Otherwise the tenant will never face up to his responsibilities.

    . . .it's a difficult one as I don't want any animal to suffer, and I don't mind sorting problems that I come across myself, but I'm NOT setting up a rescue mission for the entire community !
