Work Book (Week 8).

Hello Everyone. Someone mentioned last week that the Category for one of the jobs was 'Palm Record'. Its actually got nothing to do with palm trees or palm of your hand but refers to the operating system of my handheld computer. If for whatever reason I don't enter a category for a job it automatically enters it as 'Palm Record' so I hope that explains that for those who were wondering and Jeanette gets a gold star for spotting that and asking about it, those new eyes of yours are obviously working well!

Whilst I'm on the subject I will point out that the between the first brackets is the location of a particular job with in a category. In the second lot of brackets is the category, the category being different area's of the grounds of which there are Main Garden (the area closest to the house) Walled Garden (Withing the private grounds but once removed from within direct view of the house, this is where the greenhouses and potting sheds are). Public gardens (Where the residents and visitors live or have access too). Hall & Pumpend (The big house and dowager house). Glasshouses (Greenhouse and conservatory) Indoors (This covers Potting Shed work or maybe painting in the summer house or servicing the mowers in the barn). Misc (Is anything that doesn't really fall in to any of the above.

Anyway here is my work book for last week.

I'm breathless just reading this!
So I think I'll take a tea break!

Curious too - how many sheep and what breed? Or maybe that's classified info.
