Two young ladies, one big lorry, one steep hill!

Well, they have gone - export number one on it's way.  Slight issue with getting a massive lorry up the hill but, despite being little slips of girls the drivers were fantastic - needless to say, it turned into rush hour as soon as the lorry made an appearance and, where I see very few cars normally, it turned into gridlock!  Alpacas loaded and Carl was hiding behind his hanky due to runny eyes (hay fever he said!)  He had started work at 4.30am just so as he could make it back in time.  They have a long journey ahead of them and will not finally arrive until Tuesday so last night I could not sleep with worrying about them!  Four more sleeps (or lack of sleeps) to go  - - - and I forgot all about taking a picture!

Everything has been so manic and on top of that my car is still not right.  Carl is taking it to be diagnosed tomorrow morning and then, in the afternoon, we are going to go to Dorset County Show to have a relax and cheer up Sam.  He starts a new job on Monday which he was looking forward to but now he is missing his old job and his old boss - he had been there from school so it is a bit of a wrench!

  2. So sad saying "Goodbye!" I wonder whether you used the same transporters as we did, (LOC), as the wagon our boys arrived in was huge too because they collect and drop off across Europe? If it was them, you can rest assured the service the animals received was fantastic so your girls will be well cared for on their journey towards long balmy sunny days!

    1. Not LOC, but the same sort of huge wagon!
