We were up and out before the sun. We needed to be in Skipton for 8am.
Good old van started first time, so wrapping him up last night was well worth the effort.
Monza the dog nearly barked himself into a froth with excitement when I backed the van down to pick him up......
The excitement of going across the moors had Monza jumping all over the front of the van, onto Sally and nearly clawing open the passenger window....then there were sheep too.
He is now asleep on the sofa after a four hour round trip out to Pendle area and across the moors.
Also it is Princess Michael of Kent's Birthday....so I learned that this lady is descended from both Catherine De Medici and her husband's Mistress Diane De Poitiers. That would be Catherine De Medici's husband....just to make that clear before I get sued by royalty......
In fact she has written a book all about it. Sally now wants this book.....still hey ho back to vanning.
of course as were passing through Pendle and the famous Pendle hill, I was also regaled with the Pendle witches. Poor things did not come out of it all too well. ...So who needs a working radio!? I have a wife called Sally who likes a good story.
We delivered to Nelson, Lancashire, and then home past Otley, looking out for fire wood all the way....we eventually got some old palletts from Guiseley which I am sawing up to burn in the woodburner tonight.
a good old van day. this is how work should be.
Early knock on. Early knock off and a beer.
