Saturday 7th November 2015 – Manure day on the allotment!!

I’ll apologise now if I ramble on a bit, but I’ve had 2 glasses of wine. When you hear what I’ve done today, I’m sure you’ll understand. Today was “Manure Day” on the allotment, which is very exciting. A HUGE MASSIVE THANK YOU to Malcolm for bringing in 12 loads of manure on site using a tipper truck. How many tons on manure that equates to I really don’t know, but it a lot!! I hope the people we hired the tipper truck from, don’t want it back clean, because that’s not going to happen. The first load arrived at 9am, and the last load at just after 3.30pm. Malcolm worked solidly throughout the day. So Thank You Malcolm, your an absolute star!! I got on site at about 9.30am, for the weekend, that very early for me, I’m usually thinking about getting dressed at that time. I left at noon as I then had a wedding to bell ring for. I arrived at the church wet, messy and to be honest looking a complete mess. I was greeted by a man in a very smart suit who looked very worried by my appearance. I reassured him that I wasn’t anything to do with the wedding party and just a bell ringer (we work very hard you know) and had just come from my allotment. This put him at ease. I would like to reassure you all that I changed into some clean clothes before I started to bell ring. After the wedding had finished myself and our tower Captain Mark had to clamber about the bells and put some muffles on the clappers, because it’s Remembrance Sunday tomorrow. Big Wilf makes it so easy. Once this was done I returned to the allotment site to again assist in the Manure day. To be honest I didn’t have to do much, so spent the time sorting out my plots. I got a huge amount done in 4 hours. Once I got home, just after 4pm, I think I was entitled to a glass (or 2) of wine and a lovely hot bath. Now I feel clean, and more human, if a little spaced out and relaxed. The perfect end to the perfect day. My glass is empty, I’d better fill it up again.
