Camgrain act differently in favour of the farmer.

Yes, Pete, not been a bad last harvest. Could always have been better, but ever was it thus.

Regarding getting out, to be honest I am now reconciled to the fact of leaving. Without doubt, it does become harder as you get older (Not my cock, before anyone asks!!!).

You can still do what you once did, it just takes more - sometimes considerably more - time than it once did. You need more lie downs than ever!! :D

The time will come for everyone eventually. After you turn 60 years old, you begin to realise that the old body isn't what it once was - and it will happen to everyone of you out there, believe me!

Besides, if not now, then when?? Another five years? Another ten? Until I am carried out in a box??

No, now is the right time. I am hopeful that I will be able to see a few places which I have long wanted to see and never had the time to do so; Have got my caravan, and will be able to hitch up to that and away I go - and no spraying, fertiliser spreading, etc, etc to worry about any more.

I reckon I've done my bit over the years. I might still look for some harvest work next year (can't stand the thought of going on holiday surrounded by screaming kids!!!) but that will probably be about all.

It's been good, but time for a change.

In the last few beers I have retired from teaching and caring for cows, still operating the crop farm.

I am convinced it isn't possible to get out at the perfect time, and better too soon than too late.

After this year the crops are looking like they need someone new, worst job of farming I have done in decades.

Hoping to move into a small(ish) cottage at Shelford Bottom - about five miles away.

Still be pretty local, though. Nice and quiet there. I can hold orgy's or whatever!!! :D

Is that just before the hill up to the Gogs coming out of Cambridge? You realise that the traffic is apalling there in the mornings, and is going to get worse if the Addenbrookes site expands into a "Biotechnology Park" as the council want.

'Tis, RGSP. The traffic won't worry me too much. I haven't got to get to work anymore! :D

Anywhere around Cambridge is bad for traffic between half seven and half nine in the mornings.

I am only a couple of hundred yards from the Park and Ride site, and I have applied for a bus pass. :lol:
