Woke very early this morning, sorted out the chickens and collected the eggs before making my lunch for work and then had coffee, took Ruby our for a walk and then went to work. Had a very busy day I’m on my own again tomorrow and for the next five days so there was a good bit of stuff I needed to sort out, came home cooked dinner and then while the kids did the dishes I watched TV till Lynne finished work, we chatted about our day and then went to bed and read my book for a bit

Wednesday 29.07.15

Actually woke up to a bright sunny morning, had coffee and took Ruby out for a little walk, she is reluctant to walk far and seems to limp a little bit after a while on her right front leg, hopefully she has just sprained something we still walked a good mile and a half, cycled to the farm and checked on Skye before going to work, had a very busy day and the day went quickly, came home cooked dinner after we had tidied up we had a fun evening going through my old memory box and found some lovely old photos and letters and my grandads old watch,when Lynne finished work we chatted about our day and then got an early night

Memory Box

We where chatting over dinner about things you keep and memory’s, I dug my old memory box and had a fun evening going through old letters and post cards, I found my grandads old Ruhla Wrist Watch which I used to wear all the time right through my school years, have probably not worn much since I left school, I used to keep it on my bed side table but working in a garage and then mobile phones I’ve never really wore it again

If I remember rightly the watch came form my mum’s dad and the strap from my dad’s dad, not worn it in over 20 years, wound it up it still seems to keep good time and feels like it’s never been off my wrist, and the distinctive ticking makes me feel very nostalgic

A Nice Cycle To The Farm And Checked On Skye

Via the petrol station to blow up my bike tyre, you can’t see it in the picture but if you click the link you will see that I had to make a bit of a detour
Skye was fine a bit soggy but hopefully will dry off a bit if the rain stays off

Jason Isbell – Something More Than Free

Some of my regular readers might have noticed that I’m a bit of a Jason Isbell fan and his new album has not let me down and the more I listen to it the better it gets

When I get home from work
I’ll call up all my friends
And we’ll go bust up something beautiful we’ll have to build again

When I get home from work
I’ll wrestle off my clothes
And leave em right inside the front door
’cause nobody’s home to know

You see a hammer finds a nail
And a freight train needs the rails
And I’m doin’ what I’m on this earth to do

And I don’t think on why I’m here where it hurts
I’m just lucky to have the work
Sunday morning I’m too tired to go to church
But I thank God for the work

When I get my reward my work will all be done
And I will sit back in my chair beside the father and the son
No more holes to fill and no more rocks to break
And no more loading boxes on the trucks for someone else’s sake

‘Cause a hammer needs a nail
And the poor man’s up for sale
Guess I’m doin’ what I’m on this earth to do

And I don’t think on why I’m here where it hurts
I’m just lucky to have the work
And every night I dream I’m drowning in the dirt
But I thank God for the work

And the day will come when I’ll find a reason
And somebody proud to love a man like me
My back is numb, my hands are freezing
What I’m working for is something more than free

And I don’t think on why I’m here where it hurts
I’m just lucky to have the work
Sunday morning I’m too tired to go to church
But I thank God for the work

Jason Isbell
