my impending doom apart it had been a good day(y)...had a lie in.....took beet out to ewes....finished lane repairs ....and scrounged a free crunchie bar outta arkwright all before 1pm......picked up the freezer lambs and had a sit down in afternoon:love:.......sandwiched in between was a fantastic cheque from last weeks mart in the post... £250 more than i'd hoped...the star being a cull ewe at £142:oops:

OK nils desperandum...i have two lines of defence 1/ technicality....mrs spin said i couldn't eat 'one'.....i've eaten two;).....2/ all that 'gangster prog binge' has given me an idea;).....i'm gonna 'fit up' one a the felines 😁😁😁

Ken,ell.....you really are the last of the big spenders @spin cycle , £1 and five pence!!!!!🙄

As you'd blagged a free jacket and it being the season of good will and all that old cobblers, I thought you'd be a tad more generous 😯

Around here they make the slot in the top of the collection box only wide enough for notes😰 they had a purple one out of me last time as that was all I had😭😭😭😭
Hopefully it should get me entry upstairs with the big man🙏 😇although it's probably more fun down below 👿👹🔥

Few questions.

Did mrs spin order a new washing machine?
Did you put all the 'coin' in the collection?
Do you want to go pub after church?🤣🤣
Surely you had enough mince pies last night....?😳
I'll answer then for him....
*No, spinney bodged, oops fixed the old one.
*Yes, but spinney tied a piece of string to it so he could pull it back out again when no one's watching so he's got it for next time.
*Yes, but he's a lightweight and he'd be buggered till wednesday, atleast!!!!!
*You can't have too many mince pies!!!!

just woke up :oops: .....came in shattered...had tea....went up to change and flaked out.......house was quiet cos cinders + mrs spin wrapping presents for a neighbour.....had a weird dream:rolleyes:.....probably won't get back to sleep now :banghead:

it'd been a busy day.....2 hours mopping floors first up as i try to straighten up admirals quarters

usual sheepy chores

took lambs in to abattoir that shoulda gone last week......on the way out a guy queing in a silver discovery gave a big friendly smile.....don't think i know him :scratchhead:...i have a bandanna mask so looked pretty 'dangerous' :oops: perhaps he's heard about my 'gangster connections'😁

on the radio driving home they were talking to a gp about the coming vaccination drive....her practice doubling up from 1000/day .....got me thinking how many we sheepy ppl could do with a sterimatic😁......it musta filtered into my 'weird dream':oops:.....i'd gone up to our local vaccination centre....K had come with me and i'd taken two sterimatic guns....the vaccine only came in 25 dose bottles so K was going to switch bottles/needles/caps etc to keep me going......anyway after about an hour a gp comes over and hails K 'we're getting complaints from some of the more frail patients about the blob of purple spray mark you're putting on the back of their necks'....K is shocked/crestfallen....i'm mid vaccination but call out 'it's ok i told her to do it'.....vaccination done i pause....gesture to the gp to come closer and whisper 'once the withdrawl is up you want rid of those' :bag:
