Oh Bullocks!!!

It was a warm night, well warm to what we have been used to... We were woken up by some bulls munching grass alongside Derwent6. They had escaped through the fence in the field next to us and were making the most of the long grass. Del went outside and put on his farmers head to try and get them back through the hole they came out of. A hour later he was still trying. We then walked to the nearest farm but no one was about, so we went back and made some phone calls but we still couldn't get hold of the farm. So we had no choice but to be patient and entice them back into the field. There was a lot of eye to eye contact but Del won in the end. We then set about repairing the fence. This took up the best part of the morning and a hour later the farmer appeared with some barbed wire to thank us.

In the afternoon we spent the time organising dairies and last years photos.. We watched a film in the evening by the fire!

I think I would have preferred him to bring me a bottle of wine as thanks rather than a roll of barbed wire

Hi both
You're so right! Wine would have been more preferable!
