Day 69 Fruit Picking -
So today will be my last ever days work at the farm (probably). I was the only employee in, just helping Greg and his dad tidy up all sorts of stuff around the farm for end of the strawberry season. For example I packed away all the kit we used for picking, and tidied the entire packing shed while Greg was off doing fruit deliveries.
I worked up until lunch time, when everything had been finished. Greg goes on holiday next week for 1 week (just like the family here), then will be back the following week. Unless he asks me to go in and do weeding of the block he is 'returning' next season wen he home and before I leave, that will have been my last day today.
I need to go back to the farm when he is home regardless to get my VISA paper work signed off, but otherwise that will be it.
I got home after work about 1pm, so had some lunch, then started faffing around with the car again. I found using both the mattresses I got from Greg in the back of the car is perfect (after cutting one down a little), and I altered the in-car board rack a little bit too.
Having done that I lead around by the pool for an hour or so in the sun, with the intensions of attempting to get a little bit of a tan back! It was the first time in a couple on months I have just lazed by the pool, so that was really nice.
Having had a shower etc I spent what must have been an hour maintaining my dreads! At the moment as they are new and short they go frizzy and loose really easily, so there was lots of putting wax in and 'palm rolling' going on..understandably Mark was taking the piss a considerable amount.
Other than having dinner and helping a bit around the house not much else happened this evening..just the usual watching of TV..
