A weekend Off !.....nearly .....

4 Poles......up and still standing !!!!!!!!!!


Rob n Les.....with hats....and the rest of the Wellground Management Team !!...



Having a bit of a cuddle........with some of the Elite young boys at Wellground !!



Not quite.....a weekend off....but nearly !

The pole barn is taking shape, the four poles are upright ! Just a matter of giving it a little time for the concrete to set ....... meanwhile I was determined to have a weekend off.....

I have also...being doing a bit of art...work.....more on that later !

Although that's what I thought, any way the reality was a little different.....today I have been helping my dad dig across the track that leads to the farm, in order to lay some water pipes into the alpaca field.....unfortunately it had to cross the gateway, which was penned with rock...so I'm afraid it was a case of get your 'Pick' out.....we have managed to hand dig what we needed....not ideal when you have a bad back !

Then it will be Daisy's turn to dig across the field....another day ! It will be lovely to eventually get the water onto the fields.......it will make life much easier.....especially in the summer.

Now, back to my holidays....seems like a dim and distant memory......!! When I went to visit Wellground for a little break.... It was only polite to take a little Thank-you present......

Some may recall.....my previous post, of my dad wearing...an Alpaca Toupee !! Well that actually turned into a hat !! I made two hats, one for Rob and one for Les.......so hopefully these will come in handy in the winter. One was a blend of light fawn, dark fawn and grey......and the other was a blend of two greys and black.

When I was on my holidays....I did a little retail therapy !...and experienced the delight of the ladies...that Lunch.....syndrome......strangely enough the whole experience turned into quite an ordeal.......it was more like a comedy sketch.....from 'Faulty Towers'..... !

You can tell.......I don't go out much !......we caused quite havoc in the Pollys Cafe.......we stood being ignored for what seemed to be ages...then decided to help ourselves to cakes ! I think we should have waited to be served....then we tried to pay at the till...nothing unusual about that !
Only to be told to 'take a seat' and we would be served......Les and I looked at our cakes for ages...!! waiting patiently.....to be served......drooling at the very delay !

When the waiter did eventually come.....he was so impatient...he couldn't wait for Les to choose her drink...and tried to come back......I told him.....what I wanted and Les quickly decided to have a Traditional Lemonade !......after all he was so busy he couldn't possibly wait a moment to serve us !!!!!!!!!!!!!

The drinks did arrive....and just when he was about two strides from our table......he tripped.....!!!! and spilt all my coffee......all over the saucer and serviette ! Strangely, I thought he would go back to clean up the mess......OH no.....he then decided to give me the lemonade ! It was Les....who ordered that ! Then he picked up the soaking wet serviette, dripping with coffee.....dabbed the saucer and plonked it on front of me !!

By this point ............nothing surprised us ! what a palaver.......the ordeal continued..when we tried to pay.....not there......but in the shop ! at the front of the cafe !

Its a long story.......I know.....needless to say............they didn't get a tip !

It was quite an experience......this mixing with the 'normal people'.......I think we both decided....we definitely....were not cut out for this ladies....that lunch......sort of thing !

Mind you.....the cake was lovely......

Unlike the service !!



Ps....I'd forgotten to mention...the lunch ! as Les reminded me....as I spotted the 'GREGGS' bakery.....standing in the queue...waiting for my cheese pasty.....Les happend to mention....how it was just as well....I wasn't 'POSH' or else....it might have had to be the Savoy....for lunch !



I didn't take offence......honestly !!



I'm just as happy with a Greggs......pasty.....I just have expensive taste........sometimes !! usually involving.....alpacas !!

Jayne, Those two boys look so at home in your arms, I bet you really struggled to leave them behind. If only you could have hidden them in your bags!!

I bet they would look really nice in your paddocks, something for the rest of the gang to look at.

So when are the pole dancing pictures coming then, Jayne?!!
