Another Varied Week…

November 23, 2009

The fence has been finished, the cameras are rolling and the fire has started – Sam’s claim to fame has begun. His dreams of working alongside Tom Cruise are one step closer!

Smooth Newt

 Tuesday was a success as we have now finished the fencing at Corfe Mullen Meadow, thanks to the super efforts from Andy, Nigel and Sam, and of course myself, Cassy. So cows move on in and get grazing!

We got very stuck in the mud, LITERALLY, at Durlston Pond on Wednseday, great fun! We did contemplate making mud masks – good for the skin, apparently. I’m sure the film crew from Bournemouth Uni captured our best sides, lets hope! 

Josh struggling, very gracefully, to release himself from the mud.  Superb action shot of us all!

The pond before

The pond after

We had joined forces with Durlston Country Park for the pond restoration. Here is a link to their daily diary to find out more:

An eventful morning on Thursday as Hannah, Mandy and myself ATTEMPTED to remove an old sign at Upton Heath Reserve. May I add we were unsuccessful, out came the chainsaw and hey presto, it was gone!

Our next challenge was to put up a new sign and after a few failed attempts at digging some holes, we were on a roll, plus with Sam’s superhuman strength we could never have failed 🙂

Next – gorse cutting, or more like me being attacked by it! More gorse cutting, burning, gorse cutting, burning. Throw some jacket potatoes in there and you get the picture.

Friday – Drove Hill  – Sam’s ultimate claim to fame, with his superb interview skills I’m sure all the top hollywood movie makers will wanna get their hands on him! Plus with his singing round the fire, his next venture may be the Sound of Music! It kept us all entertained. Amidst all the fun of it we did actually clear a lot of gorse too!   

The infamous sausages did actually cook, after a decade, and no one suffered from food poisoning so all is well on that front.

Josh is not amused

I’m just a little too happy for my own good      

Sam’s amazing fire (it was burning honestly)

    Now that’s what I call a Blog! Great work Cassy, better than the one liners that Sam and Josh keep feeding us with.. You’ll have to teach them how to do it properly!
