I took the tyres and went over to see Rob who fitted the them for me.
The Volvo 340 is now a high miler. Done ticket over 50,000 miles on the 24th September. I baked some sweet chesnuts from the tree outside the front of the house, i slit them all, but still a few exploded in the oven and the photo of some bits on the ground is showing the remaining fixings from the removing the plastic under-tray from Hannah’s car. I removed it to change the oil, but sheared off or drill out the fixings as they were so badly rusted, I replaced the tray using zip ties, so it will remain to be seen if it’s still there when I change the oil next time.
Birthday 37, I managed to tip over whole mug of tea, not a small one either. Then some tree surgeons turned up and started to cut down a tree out the front and late came around the back and saw the horrible job I’d made of removing a branch of the tree out the back, in January 2016. The cleaned that up for me. But my tyres turned up and I had a lovely day even if Abigail and Hannah both have stinking colds and I was working..
Went to a TV4x4 day at Broxhead.
Yesterday I realised that we have a ripe crop of blackberrys, so I’ve eaten them on my breakfast muesli. We went to the lavender fields again, it was amazing to see the difference in the lavender over the course of a number of weeks, the tractor thing is a lavender harvester. Today I went laning with a couple of friends down towards the Devils Punch Bowl.
We visited Yorkshire and York last weekend. We visited the national train museum. I was amazed by the cut open steam locomotive, I took the photo looking towards the front of the loco to the right of the photo with the fire box in the foreground to the left. The river is the Ouse and the house is Beningbrough Hall.
We went to two National trust properties this weekend. Clandon House, which was burned out in 2015, so that made the visit interesting as it’s possible to go inside of the building and see the structure. Then we visited Hatchlands Park where we had a localy walk around the grounds. On the Sunday we visited the Lavender fields.
