An Eventful Morning !!!!!

With my list of jobs ever longer ,
 I got up at stupid o'clock as they say to get as many ticked off said list as possible............
Washing on - more gardening while it was cool ---------
BUT !!!
Looked up to see a "herd " (---- 8------) of cattle at the end of the drive !!!!!
So off we went to coax them into a field till we could identify which farm they had escaped from ---
choice of three  surrounding us .
They were having non of it and while we came in to phone --- they went walkabout again , back on the road .
There are some really stupid people in this world !!!!
No patience ----- started tooting horns --- poor cattle got really scared and stampeded up the hill--
round the back of our outbuilding and jumped the fence back on to the road.
Didn't mince my words with the stupid driver -----
So there I was -- broom in hand flagging down cars so they didn't come head on with the cattle in the road .
They are safely back in their own field, hopefully non the worse for wear!!
Having a cup of coffee now before getting back to the jobs in hand.
This is not an uncommon occurance out here -----
On my way to see Jacqui on Wednesday , I was chasing a sheep and her two lambs back to their field !!!
Fun in the countryside or what ?????
Shame I didn't think to run for the camera .
Hope everyone is  having as much fun  !!!

    Wishing you a very Happy Easter xx

  5. Lots of sheep and lambs and cows and calves around us here too. Have to keep a tight hold on my dogs!!! Been around farms all my life though as uncles had a farm and I married a farmer so at least I know what to do if I meet any of them when I'm in the car. Some stupid people can be very impatient though and it doesn't work!

    Have a lovely weekend.

    Kat xx
