Skidmarks…

Not the ones in your undies…ewwwww

The one’s on the roads I mean.
Today was a bad day for the roads. This morning on the way to work there were three of us one car in front of the other on our way towards Keyneton when right in the middle of the bitumen sat (yes sat) a sheep. Swerrrrrve! Kamikaze sheep at 6:50am is a little scary!
Then on the way home from work I was heading around a wide bend when my car started veering onto the dirt and as I turned to adjust myself my car swung to the side, turned 180 degrees, chewed up a massive cloud of dirt and left me facing the other way on the opposite side of the road. I wasn’t shaken up, and luckily there was no on-coming traffic, just Stuart from work behind me who pulled over and made sure I was ok, wiping a generous licking of dust off the side of my car. From the burn marks my tyres left it doesn’t look like I turned 180 degrees somehow. But it was all slow motion and I just tried to control my car so I wasn’t hit the barbed wire fences and just keep skidding along the road. It was the right thing to do, and I’m OK. First little incident for my little car. At least no damage was done to it or myself.
On a much brighter note, at work today the boys asked me if I would like to be the Temp Goddess…the Temp Goddess? I hear you say. We had Tempranillo grapes come in yesterday and we’ve sectioned them off to be fermented and made in several ways so since Jack is busy with the other reds, it is going to be my duty to make these my babies and care for them. Will keep you updated on how I fare!
Over and out! Buon weekend
