Good on her 👍
If she's at all interested in racing, get her to watch today's racing on catch up (OK, I'll hold my hands up - I skived off for a couple of hours this afternoon) - there's a couple of young lasses who won good televised races - very inspirational for young 'uns 🏇🏇

only a farmer can feel guilty over 'skiving' at weekend :rolleyes:

You can have a kabab at any time but usually they look more appetising and taste better the later it is.

Oh and beer helps aswell, I find they're at there best after 8 pints🥴
Mate of mine swore by the Prebab, that is the one consumed on the walk into town after a few drinks at home to line the stomach for the rest of the evening.

My experience with kebabs has been consistently associated with illness next day!

Will either of your photos be on your cards, spin?

Hope you're soon over the lurgy 🙂
My mate used to wake up next to a kabab he'd consumed the night before many a time🤢



Spinneys Christmas card him standing on his door step with wreath in one hand and cock in the other!!!!!(pheasent)

🤣🤣🤣🤣

Many moons ago my mum had baked a cake amongst other things for the village fete. She was well chuffed, one of the best ones she made she reckoned.

Left it on the side ready for the fete.

Father came in. Mum was out......can you guess what happened 🙈🙈🙈

The entry for the fete was an empty plate with crumbs on it and a note explaining about her gluttonous husband! Didn't win that year 🤔 Made the diss express 🤣

EDIT. Father was in the dog house for a considerable amount of time. I'm talking weeks not days. I can still remember her shouting now 😳🤐
We'll have to see what you get James 🤨

The survey will estimate the area of cereals and oilseed rape intended for harvest in 2022 in the UK. It aims to assess the varietal composition of wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape crops in the UK. The results of this survey will allow the industry to quantify domestic production, at a time when food security is more important than ever.
The information can be used to shape the domestic market and trade and assist levy payers in their marketing decisions. It will detail regional differences of cropping across the UK, which will help...
