Outta my comfort zone

Today we had planned to go to a friends thousand acres farm and get some wood for the fire.
I even had the lunch all made up and ready to go last night but when we turned up this was meet us. Lots of rain and very soggy muddy paths. I was all for turning around and going home but hubby had other ideas.
 He made me drive this! He cut the fallen trees into long lengths and with the fork at the front I was to pick them up drive back to the car and put them into the trailer. Was he kidding!! It took all of about 2 minutes for me to get the hang of the gears, and to get it to go up and down the very slippery track. But then I was having a ball. Hubby was very proud of me. He said I took to it like a duck to water, and was driving like an expert.
These are the logs we loaded into the trailer, I loaded them all without putting one dint into the trailer. Always a bonus.
Now that we are home, he has unloaded them and when the weather is better he will finish cutting them up and we will split them, ready for the fire.
I wasnt sure at first, but pushing myself out of my comfort zone made for a fun day.
enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone.

Happy log splitting! Petal was out doing his bit this weekend too. All worth it for the lovely warmth and atmosphere later. Maa
