I could have blogged this picture yesterday. Only it would have been dark. A full days work happened yesterday. The edging strips went in and I made a lot of concrete to hold them in place. Then it was front filled and levelled up to put the side kerbs in.
Today though I need to get rid of the rubble that is in the bags. And that means a lot of visits to the tip.
While I eat breakfast I see the installation has only got to 50%…..
I was surprised, surprised to see my dad this morning. After all we work hard yesterday.
While I tipped and visited Wickes for more stuff,
my dad finished relaying the center blockwork.
Wow just how I planned it. The old shingle is very dirty, but hopefully I can clean that up.
I park the car on there, it is however by the looks of it time to get changed and head to Codsall.
Somewhere along the line something has gone wrong. I have got here very early. How I’m not sure. But here I am. One minute I was at the tip panicking about the time as I looked down at the clock in the car, the next I was relaxing in the Crown Joules. I have a Pale Ale.
As my body relaxes, I realise how tired it is, how even my fingers ache.
And so I relieve the pain.
I really like it here. Its got a great bar like Cheers.
At 5pm I head round and see the house transformation. Of WOW it has changed, and yes it works, and yes I’m jealous. It lovely.
We head to the station, where we are joined by the four Asbury's. I wasn’t expecting them. But a pleasure it was to see them. In fact lately I haven't seen anyone but my drive work.
So you can imagine how much of a treat this was.
In the toilets the noughts ad crosses game was going well.
We head over to the Crown Joules to get some tea.
But they were not cooking, so instead, we went for a walk.
Some time later, we are at Codsall Spice.
And man was the dish nice, yes, yes, yes.
However time had flown by and it was time for me to leave for the 9:25 chu chu.
I walk across the road and
before you know it the train had arrived. I start my journey south.
I change at Grand Central and start my journey north.
Some time later I have passed my usually curry house on the way home and thankgod not gone in.
When home something unbelievable happened.
Yes it has started.
Can stay awake long enough to have a go.
Just about, but not for long…..
