Birmingham, UK – Airport

Last night we had no electricity – 😦 !!! It was horrible… do you realise that everything that you keep yourself busy with in the evening involves electricity?? – We could not make dinner, could not heat the house (it was freaken freezing!!!!!), could not drink coffee, could not do our usual lazing in front of the tele & blogging etc… Did I mention that we were the only house on the block without electricity?? Yes, we did pay the bill 😉 …

This morning when we woke up – still no electricity… It totally sucked!!! 😦 During the day they fixed it, but they could give us no explanation to what happened or why!!! Specialists?? Really??

Anyway – I’m ranting… & all I really want to do is share my travel lane memory for the week!!! 😀

This was the glimpse of Birmingham that we got way back in 2005!!! It was a VERY cold day, but we were all excited for the adventure that lay ahead!! (for those of you who are new here, we worked on a turkey farm that holiday… hmmmm… where did your Christmas turkey come from that year??) 🙂

– – – Tilt-shift update – – – I have about five more photos in this “self-improving” project!!! Will share them with you soon!!! (I have a few more ideas for photos that I want to try and get before I start revealing my results!!) 🙂 Are you busy with your tilt-shift?? Share them with me on my facebook page!!! Would love to see your results!! 🙂 **

Stratford-on-Avon, UK – Duck Delicacy

My second post for the night & my Travel Lane memory for the week!!! 😀

In December 2005, me & a few friends did a bit of holiday work on a farm in the Stratford-on-Avon region… Yes, it was beautiful… It was super hard work… – – – Not work that I’ll be doing if it wasn’t for the fact that we were in England – – – I’ll never do it here in South Africa!!! 😉

Our job was to wake up super early (in the freaken freezing cold)… catch duck & turkeys… put them in a dark room… ready to start the process of “preparing” them for christmas dinner!!!! 😉

Plucking the feathers… taking out the intestines… weighing… packaging… etc. etc!!! 😀 How on earth was I able to do it?? – Today I don’t know 😀 – But it was fun & a beautiful place… Maybe you know the place… Lower Clopton Farm Shop??? Yes, we lived there for a few weeks… maybe you ate one of my prepared turkey’s/ducks!!! 😀 **

Yup, that’s me… & a waxed duck!!!! 😀
