Decided to cut down 4 willow trees. Despite all having been cut down before, they had now grown to a rather large size. Out with the chain saw, started first time and away we went cutting. Alas after several minutes not much impression. Blunt saw.
Sent Rosemary off to Longmoor’s to have it sharpened. She came back suitably chastened after being told that it had not been serviced, the oil was not lubricating the chain and the chain was too tight. Soon was cutting again, like the proverbial hot knife through butter.
Managed to cut down all the trees and started logging some of them.
Flew to Edinburgh for a short meeting with a pension company customer. The meeting was at 10.00, so had to fly from Birmingham. Rather early flight so bad night sleep. Met our Sales person in the Cafe Nero at 9.00 for a cup of coffee.
I seem to have been rather lax in doing any postings is recent weeks. I suppose that is because not alot is happening at present.
Since visiting Edinburgh, and having a long weekend in Edinburgh, I have been working from home or working in the Aylesbury office on various support issues.
The last visit to Edinburgh culminated in the project teams Christmas party on Thursday lunch time. This went on till late in the evening. Next Rosemary arrived and we had a weekend in Edinburgh. She is due to write that up today.
Since then Christmas has come and passed. The weather has been variable, rain, frosts, sun, wind, but no snow. We now have sheep again in the field at the back, who are wading through puddles.
Well today I am in Aylesbury, the sun is shining and the wind is blowing hard. Time to make a cup of tea and start some work.
