Amusing Tales

My New Forest Property *Slip Up*

Today I braved the cold, wet, winter snow to get myself into the New Forest to see a dilapidated shed which was going to auction and which I thought may have the potential for some planning gains…

It was located in one of those VERY small places where you have about three houses, 18 stables and just as many land rovers. Yes – the sort of place where everybody knows everyone and the curtains twitch when they hear a car on the road. And so as I didn’t want to draw attention to myself – especially not if the locals see me looking at the barn. And so I thought I would just have a quick look round and take a video of the surroundings so that I could study it better when I was back home later.

So there I was crunching quietly in the snow…watch, wait and then laugh!  I have bruises all down my side, my elbow and my hand, my clothes were soaking wet and I was most concerned about the damage I’d done to my iphone and it’s sudden orbit into the atmosphere!

Wishing you a wonderfully happy Christmas and New Year 🙂

    After reading the blog and the comments before watching the video I was determined not to be as heartless as ‘friends’ above & thought ‘that’s no laughing matter, she’s hurt herself’ … then I spat my tea everywhere uncontrollably laughing!!! … sorry Sam, this is def a YouTube winner

    Did you also have that terrible feeling of “OMG my whole life is on my iPod, hope it still works??”

    I would also consider suing the council as it looks like you slipped on an un-gritted road.

    Have a great new year.
