OH just phoned daughter. He hadnt read her txt!

Apparently there was black ice all round the factory carpark this morning. It's almost at the top of a steep hill on an industrial estate. OH realised may be a problem as he got to the hill, so he parked on the road further down & managed to get up to the factory, just, on 2 feet. Someone else not so lucky & sidewiped their OH's new Merc (!!) into carpark entrance post- ooh dear.

I just hope that I can get parked nearer to the little house tomorrow. The last couple of times I've ended up a fair way back up the main road, which is supposed to be ?2hrs max, but I've never had a problem. Once the carpark nearest to house starts to empty I go & get my car. Sometimes there's a space on OH's road, but unless I can get in front of OH I dont even try. Cars parked all down 1 side, narrow & the only way back down is reversing the whole way- noooooo.

Right, tree assembly next- I may be gone some time. J.

Geoff! I have ventured from my comfort zone! n dwelled into the depths of unknown! n just read a thread a German Farmer n your goodself have been involved in!

Very interesting reading! Can say Yay! to both side's! But I try not to use where possible! But do find these pure organic guy's go a little over the top!

Do they not stain there fences, paint their shed's, drive a car etc! I think not! 

Soz! Wrong Thread! Rant over!

The world is made up of chemicals -some good some not so-will remind him of what you said tomorrow-never thought of that-unless he has a horse and cart and stains shed with horse poo

Which reminds Bjay-you will need this if it is really windy
