Started the day by checking that the 3g dongle was still operational..
Then it was of to town and into a couple of trade emporiums for a price for a new front door, the trouble is the hole it needs to fit is so non standard that we need one making. Best price so far £577, ouch!
Then onto the food shoping with a little extra for a picnic this afternoon.
Back home it was to good an opertunity not to miss sitting outside with a coffee and chocolate eclairs, the sun beating down and no sound other than birdsong.
Coffee over it was on to putting the battery on the duke, ready for its first outing.
I keep this taxed and insured 365, you never know when i may need it as backup transport.
After a spot of lunch, the duke was put on the back burner and we took the dogs for a walk into the deep dark woods where the gruffalo lives
The walk got deeper and darker..
Our path was blocked with windblow and a detour was needed
Untill finaly emerging onto wild fell land where a long abandoned schoolhouse and two crofts sit.
We settled next to the burn and enjoyed a splendid picnic and shot a few photos with the pro camera
Before heading back to finish the duke.
As it happens the sodding battery is fecked so no starty without help…rolocks, trip down ebay lane this evening. And plans scuppered for the morning, ah well……
