I think I can beat that Brian. Many years ago when I was manager of a Photographers Shop in The City of London I took my normal train to Fenchurch St, and arrived 20 minutes to nine ready to open the shop at 9am. Put my hand in pocket and you know what is coming don't you. Yes left the keys at home. All the staff were arriving and was I embarrassed. I gave them all some money and bought them Breakfast and went Back home to get the keys. That took nearly 2 hours there and back. What a day that was. Good job I lived near the Station at other end.
If only there was enough hours in the day..................John

Remembered the can this morning, 17 euros for petrol. Beginning to wonder about a couple of sheep. Can you buy an electric tractor.

I assume that you want to use it to cut grass: http://www.gaywaysltd.co.uk/husqvarna-r ... tery-p5953 but it doesn't come cheap!

Or from E-bay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-STIGA-PA ... SwFP5c7uma

still not cheap, but better price.

They don’t come cheap no matter how they are powered.

This is ours with all its attachments.

Did you need a short course in tractor driving. When we came here, we had bought their ride on mower, and farmer popped in to explain what lever did what..
