Trials & Tribulations

An exciting but tense day for us –

our first day at Food Centre Wales, learning the ‘ropes’ & pasteurising our milk for the first of our formal product trials.  All went relatively well although there were a couple of minor hiccups which I won’t bore you with; however they did cause tempers to mutually flare on the way home as it seemed we were blaming each other for things which were not even at fault.  Tony hurled the car along the greasy little single-track roads which were slippery with useasonable rain, in his angry determination to scare me (having had a nasty aquaplaning accident a few years ago which has left me understandably cautions of inclement driving conditions).  But it was more the highly-charged atmosphere surrounding the start of our trial work, that led to this ridiculous storm in a teacup; ultimately there was nothing we could really do other than speculate so I suggested it was best to relax & see what tomorrow will bring…..

….but that’s easier said than done when you’ve had a busy day during which the additional challenge of much of the ingredients & equipment we’d ordered & needed, only arriving at literally the eleventh hour before we left for Horeb this morning – so a tense time all round.  Phew – deeeeeep breaths required!
