Angela had another month added to her contract and I even managed to get some work back at Mansfield College.
Early on in the month I helped Kate out on the farm as she had organised an event for a local company. It was a clay pigeon shoot with some command tasks thrown in followed by the participants cooking food on the BBQ’s. I made a fire first thing so on arrival they could keep warm while having a coffee waiting for all to arrive. Later in the day I lit four other fires adding the charcoal after a while ready for the cooking. Just as well I love making fires…….I was in my element!
Anyone reading this if you are interested in clay pigeon shooting Kate is qualified and is able to cater for single lessons or team/family events. The website is http://www.afarmlifeoxford.com/
Angela and I have still been getting out for a walk at weekends and this month we got to Wittenham Clumps, Brill and along the river into Oxford city.
On the selling front I managed to get rid of all of our CD collection and a few DVD’s on Music Magpie for £170 We haven’t played CD’s for eight years as all of our music is on our iPod, iPad, laptop and now on a cloud somewhere up in the sky! How many of you have CD’s sat on a shelf at home gathering dust?
The last thing to report during this month and the most important was that my dear old mum had a mastectomy. She is such a brave and remarkable woman and I’m pleased to say that the op went well. We will have to wait and see what the next plan of action is. For us the NHS system and all those especially at The Churchill hospital have been amazing. They have been thorough in their explanations but most importantly they have treated my mother with respect and compassion. This has been a great help to me and my family. Fingers crossed for the future.
