One big step into wide world!!

So I thought I'd be clever and apply for a job just before leaving school. Farming was what i wanted to do,s o farming is what i'll do.
So i happened to get this job in the shetlands which was Awesome and then found out where the Shetlands actually was! yes i no it was dumb not looking up where it was be i was excited!!
1992 back when dodgy perms and shell suits where cool!!
As it happened my parents drove me 7 hours to Aberdeen where they said there goodbyes and put me on the ferry, no tears as i was determend to be brave and Awesome. And as it turned out i balled my eyes out, thinking what the hell was i doing?! But there was no turning back!!

14 hours later I turned up at Lerwick, shetlands isles, and home for the next 2 years!
offically crazy
