Bang and Its Gone

DSC_3976

Out there somewhere the world looks so nice. There is even wildlife out there. The Pidgeon is eating something.

DSC_3978

This is precompost. There is the liberated banana skin.

DSC_3979

I get the bacon out o the freezer turn the kettle on and let it defrost while

DSC_3980

I head for the shower and bathroom cleaning session.

DSC_3981

When the bacon is cooked I sit outside and complanate what the day holds.

DSC_3983

Sometime later the sledge hammer is out and the wall foundations are out.

DSC_3984

Sometime later the 4inch slabs from 1930 are destroyed along with my arms and the modern slabs are removed.

DSC_3988

I have obviously got to get rid of some of this rubble. Out come the trailer.

DSC_3989

And so the laborious work of moving the bits to the trailer begins.

DSC_3992

I hook the trailer up.

DSC_3996

Fill it to what I think I can get away with weight wise, not volume.

DSC_3997

I pull off hearing the creaking and the push you pull me effect of having such a weigh on the back.

DSC_4000

I arrive at the tip, and knowing you have to pay for rubble I go for the I’ve got two trailer loads to get rid of to get a good deal So I’m charged £9 a trailer.

DSC_3999

While others came along in disbelief that they had to pay, gave a long argument, and general said all the things they had heard so many times before. I got asked how much I was charged for a trailer of rubble. They could not believe it, but I just simply replied, and how much would a skip cost me?

DSC_4001

It was a nice day to throw rubble from the small trailer to the big bin.

DSC_3995

I return home and do the second run.

DSC_4004

Much later the day ends like this, I’m so tired, I ache so much. Here you can see the original arrangement of the paving slabs, with the original property boundary ones on the left. And the extended property boundary ones on the right.

DSC_4005

And while it was hard work to move them They look better like this. I did this to the gate. What is awkward is they are all slightly different sizes.

DSC_4008

The front of the drive to where the pea shingle is going now looks like this. I go to Wicks and get some drive sheet.

DSC_4009

And here from the front door to the pavement I’m going to build a block path.

DSC_4010

First though I need to buy some building blocks and stuff.

DSC_4013

I’m sure it will look good in the end.

DSC_4015

But I’m about to die.

DSC_4016

In fact I’m that tired I already know nothing is going to change tomorrow.

DSC_4018

I’m impressed though how much i got done in the end.

DSC_4017

And so I put the outdoor tools away.

DSC_4019

Come in doors and change the door handles downstairs for some silver ones.
