So, I have reluctantly upgraded to Chrome and (fingers crossed) all seems to work again at the moment ..
Anyhow, enough ranting ... what do you reckon to this blog title then?! Not often you read all those words in the same sentence!
Yes indeed folks .. David and Debbie have had 2 brief holidays since we last spoke. Leaving Auntie Anita and Milking Mel in charge of those goatie girls (or was it the other way round?), we went off to spend a couple of days in London last week.
The original plan had been to drive to East Dulwich, park up outside Franklins Farm Shop and then hop on a bus into town. But the transport union managed to scupper this idea by calling a 24hr bus strike. Plan B ... drive to Blackheath and park up at the station. Hop on a train into town and then tube to Kensington to check in at our hotel.
The main purpose of the break was to enjoy the Cirque du Soleil at the Royal Albert Hall - this was our Xmas present to ourselves! So, we just extended the visit and booked ourselves into a rather nice hotel just round the corner from Albert.
We managed to check in early, dropped our bags off and then skipped across the road to Imperial College to find some of our friends at the South Kensington Farmers Market for a scrummy lunch. Then David was treated to the 'Debbie Walking Tour of London' as we tramped for several miles to see the sights .. Here is a passing tourist at the Queen's house ..
And another one!
The Albert Hall was as stunning as I remember it from years ago when I used to live in London and was a regular season ticket holder to the Proms.
And the show was just incredible. Utterly amazing. If you ever get a chance to go and see the Cirque du Soleil, then go! Unbelievable acrobatics, dancing, music and costumes. A night to remember.
Back home and back to reality for a few more busy days .. then off again to Herefordshire yesterday to take some more of our little goatie girls to their new home. We took 13 of the newest babies to join the 130 youngsters that we moved in September.
It was great to see Andrew and Diane again and the goatie girls just looked amazing. Lovely and round and most of the goatlings now well in kid. They are due to start kidding in a few weeks and, thankfully, Andrew almost has the new milking parlour finished and ready to go.
So that's it for the moment! Two nights away in two weeks .. who would have thought it!
