New routine at Rock HQ thanks to day light saving, mornings are easier, for now, as the extra light makes it easier to see which animal you have tripped over or who's pooh you are currently standing in. Evenings are the opposite, its dark when I get home so second feeds take place in late afternoon and done by my beautiful and oh so patient wife under the supervision on the apprentice smallholder.

The sun was shining, the sky was blue, the birds sang their little hearts out from the trees despite the ice station zero temperatures and after yours truly got used to the fact that he was walking like John Wayne thanks to the docs private investigations today was a day to set off over the hills and far away to give our VIP guests the full Monty Rock HQ experience.
Roll on springtime!

Eva was so impressed by the new extension that she totally forgot she was agoraphobic for about 53 seconds, long enough to grab a snack.
While all attention was focused on the three amigos, Bradley (the one with sideburns) Daffodil and Levi took full advantage of open doors and had a party of their own.

I ventured out into the lands of the militia today, and got lost. I thought I knew where I was going, and thought I knew where I was when I arrived but as I didn't recognise anyone in the yard, or see anything that remotely resembled three naughty Ryeland sheep I drove on. And being a bloke didn't ask anyone for directions so ended up back at Rock HQ deficit sheep.
My beautiful and oh so patient wife then very kindly phoned the militia base who confirmed their location and that they had seen yours truly in their yard and leaving before anyone could stop him.
A new rescue mission is planned for tomorrow.

Oh how lovely, what, she asked, with a bow around its neck?
No, I replied, bread.

Yours truly was very surprised to find he had a savings account as never having had any inclination to plan or save it had never occurred to me to open an account, or occur to me that I could syphon off any cash without detection.
Protesting my innocence I called the bank.
Yes confirmed the bank manager you have a savings account.
Excitement level began to rise, really, are you sure, yes I'm sure its got your name on it and everything, finally I asked the question, erm, could you tell me how much is in it, today's balance is....
The sudden crashing sound brought hotel staff running and after they picked my jaw up off the floor (I was being treated to lunch hence the very public BLOODYFANTASTIC!!! sorry sorry, to other diners) I got bank manager to repeat several times the amount and double check it was mine, she also confirmed that she opened the account for me a long time ago and that I wasn't drunk when I signed the paperwork, it really was my money, and yes I could spend it if I wanted to.
So I have, after much searching (2534 vehicles later) we think we have found a good one. Here is Miranda. Fingers crossed she lasts longer than Hazel and that no horses think we have bought them a new arse scratcher.
