Time is against me

Apologies again for not blogging sooner, I see that people check the blog daily and feel that I should be writing something down for you to read.

MY DAY JOB IS GETTING IN THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes folks I have been at work all week starting at 7.00am and finishing at the start of getting on with other things time. Consequently I haven't had any blogging time.

We are also in the middle of planning our Australia visit which is in less than five weeks. I phoned up a hotel in Sydney yesterday to book a room and instead of hearing the expected 'G'day cobber what can I do for you' the phone was answered thus, 'Bonjour my name is Michel ow may I elp you'. Yes a Frenchman! That really threw me. Anyway he was a very nice frenchman and the hotel is now booked. So that's the first two nights taken care of, now what? That is what is underway at the moment, planning the two weeks after that. A bit last minute perhaps? Makes it more interesting.

The mighty Patou herd is looking magnificent and we are off to the Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival this weekend where we have been invited to roll up with some alpacas. That in itself has caused a few problems because we have sold all the young boys who would normally come along.

I have passed around a questionnaire to the girls to see if there are any volunteers but most of the paperwork has been defaced, some of it quite abusive. Someone is going to have to go, so we'll be doing eenie meenie or something.

Anyway, guess what? I have to go as I need to put my funny outfit on and head off to work.

Au revoir.........as they say in Sydney!

Cheese festival? Alpacas? Don't get the connection - have you been milking your mums an making some alpaca log on the side? (wonder what that would taste like!). Didn't even know you were going to Aus. Is this to spy out some more pacas?

We always try to go where we are invited Lucy, even to cheese festivals! We like cheese too, so bonus!

Australia has been in the planning for a while, just a holiday but we may see some alpacas whilst we're there!
