Super Tuesday Super Week

Yep its been a good week you know the sort where every thing goes to plan and no unexpected problems crop up, the first few crocus are showing up starting to bring a dash of colour to the front lawn when i drive of to work in the morning's. Got a load of sharp sand delivered to fill the barrels I got to grow carrots in so it can settle before I sow the seed. This is the first time of trying to grow some showy long carrots in barrels, they might hopefully turn out to be the best carrots I have ever grown they will certainly be the most expensive I've ever grown.

Have been following with interest the election in the USA cant say i have any clear favourite but the style and razzmatazz is quite interesting to watch if i was pushed John McCain would get my support (for what that's worth) and he seems to be getting by with the least money of all the contenders which must prove cash can't beat straight talking.

Watched the England /Switzerland match on Wednesday with interest to see how our new manager set about things and must say i have been quietly impressed with his style i like his way of setting out a clear agenda as to how he expects every one to behave when representing England, get them to feel proud and they will be proud to play for their country not as it has seemed in some games where the commitment was OK but the passion and desire to win seemed bit lacking with one or two members of the team. A 2/1 win over Switzerland was a start but their is still a bit to go to beat the very best but we do have some great players so maybe just maybe this time we might win something.

With the sunny weather midweek it gave me and Simon my son in law a chance to do some wall gapping we do have quite a few miles of walls on the farm to maintain and winter weather tends to bring a few gaps down so it always handy to get some sorted out on a decent winters day so as not to have to many to do in the spring when we are usually quite pushed with other jobs like lambing and calving, i find it quite a pleasant job to do when you are well away from the phone and it's quite and peaceful over looking the lake with the mountains in the distance (see photo I took above) it gives you time to think.
