Today NOT at work


Bit warmer than Ceredigion here in Vendée. Loving my first camping holiday with my wife and daughter! My in-laws are here too which makes thing so much easier with a very active (soon to be) 3 year old!

…and the cover is off, along with all the edging staples. I always make a point of removing those, as hitting the old ones with the new staples is very annoying. Especially if it’s something awkward like a car seat!
I had a tea upgrade, too 🍷
I’ll send the OH out to get the fabric of her choice, with some fresh wadding.

Road trip today down to Bungay via Norwich, back home via Beccles for chippy lunch, Dunwich beach caff for Ice cream, steady chug back cross country to A14 at Stowmarket, via A1120.
Someone drilling with tracked JD 8370 and big Vaddy, by Badingham I think, 500kg bags of seed, couldn't immediately think what it would be this late?
Lots of work been done to A14 Godmanchester towards M11 Eastbound since we last went that way, huge amounts of landscaping and lakes dug, etc.

Saw a very curious grain store en route, wonder if replacement sheets still available..

Have to say, notwithstanding we have seen some of the hungrier soils on offer, that the dry weather has done you chaps no good at all. Plenty of thin, short wheat in full ear and plenty of grass weeds. Doesn't bode well for a vintage year...

Looking sharp. I should use that one for your avatar:) .
You have to wonder what the old folks would make of a wedding venue in the old shippon/ loosebox etc. I'm living in similar, and can't make my mind up what my Gramp would say; but whatever, I expect I've done it wrong :) .
Looks well, was it cold?

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
