More snow at Patou

We awoke to a fresh covering of snow this morning. I have been leaving for work in the dark and returning in the dark so haven't seen the alpacas for a few days, Sue has been on alpaca duties.
Today and tomorrow though I am off! I have a list of things to do as long as my arm and will be venturing out in the Discovery today.

The first job on the list, after the animals have been sorted out, is to go to the tip which is about 14 miles away in Shaftesbury. We have had our bins emptied once in the last month and we are a little bit awash with rubbish. Perhaps we'll get a rebate on our council tax? Perhaps I'll grow another head. Actually council tax really winds me up so cue a small rant. We have no street lights, no road clearing, no grit bins, no nothing all we get are our bins emptied occasionally! The most expensive bin collection in country? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! There are more of you out there with similar claims I'm sure.

Anyway I will be off with a bootfull of rubbish, Angus may well be with me, his school is closed today and Sue is supposed to be working but I don't think she will get far today.

That probably means that there will be a certain amount of sledging and snowballing later.
