I have been trying to manage the water situation on the field and now that I have two more IBCs to add to the five already there, I needed to transfer the water from two which were already full to the two new ones which are not connected to the barn guttering. Here you can see the levels in the IBCs as I transfer rainwater between some of them, and the skies waiting to empty their water content on me as I walked back home.
I've took another photo of me this week - I've now lost just over nine stone in forty weeks.
I'm still wearing my old fairly large men's trousers in this, but don't want to wear my new smaller ones in this awful weather, as every time I go up to the field or to the car I get covered in mud. My new t-shirt is complemented with a Next silk scarf which I found in a charity shop in the UK at Easter for just £2 - bargain eh? I've got the Obesité Bretagne Nord (North of Brittany Obesity Group) meeting, previous mini gastric by pass patients and prospective patients and their partners talking with the surgeon and dietician and others this evening in St Brieuc, so am hoping that it won't be chucking it down for my 45 minute drive back in the dark - I hate driving with spray coming up at the windscreen all the time.
Just a few more photos and these are of the rape seed oil crops whose yellow fields I can't resist.
1. Bright yellow field of oil seed rape flowers.
2. The dazzling sunshine in between the torrential rain showers.
3. Meeting a potential new friend at the supermarket.
