I'm 2 days away from completing a job that's been ongoing for 6 months. Thank god we had a dry spring as its proper wet on the fields now. Just some tidying up of bund's to do, small bit of stock fencing to finish, but if I take the plant on the field its going to make more mess than its worth. The path I put in down next to the river is underwater as the rivers burst its banks - I've got to hand that over somehow next week!
Still, its saved the hour job of watering the trees every day so swings and roundabouts I suppose

Weather is shite, but everything's out. One 7t is functioning on weekly hire as a compound machine loading the skip lorry a couple days a week... the other is busy visiting landscaping jobs that are being supplied with soil by the skip lorry. Theme of the month is the skip lorry :ROFLMAO: If I had two of them they would both be out atm.

At around 4.45pm I was seriously thinking what have I done buying another digger. Got to have been one of the worst working days I have ever had with mud and rain. I used to just look out the window and stay home. Now people expect me to carry on and get the job done!!

Ground conditions are a lot better already, I have just been out with the auger and it is surprisingly dry underneath.

still soaking here, strange the EA posted last week that the aquifer is only just over 50% full.

Don't get me wrong we haven't had to drag out the dust suppression tankers yet but it is a massive improvement on last week.

Yep. We are now digging like the blokes on Gold Rush. It is frozen. Mental note to put the thermal ski socks on tomorrow.
