suspenders and a bra
I wish I'd been a girlie
Just like my dear Papa
(from Monty Python's Lumberjack Song)
When we arrived home last night we discovered that the storm during the week had knocked over a large tree and it was blocking the driveway.
|No, not this tree but you get the idea.|
The job took for ages but I got it done and loaded into the caged trailer which fortunately I relicensed last week. Unfortunately the WOF has run out but bugger if I'm going to unload all the branches, trunk bits and other rubbish to take it to the garage. I'll just have to risk it.
The hose is OK but there must have been some torrential rain as the earth base under the house is saturated. The rain must have sluiced off the hills up back and gone under the house as well as down the drive. Bugger! It willtake ages to dry out. Next summer the plan will be to put extra drainage up the back. Oh, that and a new roof that the Old Girl wants (the current one is serviceable but has salt stains from being by the sea), paving out the back, maybe a garage, glass frontage for the deck .....Lotto!
