Here again, all the locks are frozen on the gate! No sign of the dog ha ha, the lucky girl is stuck to her heater, some guard dog she is when it is cold!! Ha ha. The lorry started full of frost but the road was not too bad, happy days.
What a day! I wish I did not say that, but that's the way it is here never a dull moment. I went to fetch a small lorry from near Leamington and was told it was okay to drive, but when I got there it had one flat tyre, had not been started for a year and had no windscreen! Not to be put off, we always get our lorry, we put the jump pack on and changed the tyre, then she started just like that so I thought we will drive it back it was okay until it started raining and the wipers on my glasses stop working ha ha, but got her home okay. The container has been done by 4pm, that's a record, thank goodness I did not face another late night. It's been a good day on tyres, I sold a car and some small parts but not a lot as the weather is rubbish!.
