Nine minutes past four in the afternoon and I have Broadband for the first time today. And it might go off at any time, so here is a short blog.
This was taken out of the car window as we passed the Auction Mart field, where the travellers on the way to the horse fair are always welcome to stay and rest their horses overnight. There are several horses in the picture but the grass is quite long - I think there is one visible if you look for it.
Two lots of travellers are travelling in ordinary caravans along with a horsebox with their traditional horses. But the green top van you see
is travelling being pulled by a horse and with a spare horse alongside. I know this because we followed the chap for quite a long way before he reached our town. The horses looked in good condition and as we came home from town this morning they were eating from nose bags, so they must be getting food other than just grass.
The weather here has turned beautifully warm and sunny this afternoon and the farmer and I have been gardening all afternoon.
At this point I lost my connection - it has just come back on at six o'clock, so a quick sign off before I lose it again. Just one of life's frustrations.
