It's Raining Pallets...

30 March 2017 20:48:40

A few days ago we finally got around to collecting the Pallets...43 in all to be precise, Denis accompanied me and 4 runs later we sat down to a well earned C&C...because I now have a regular supply I could afford to be generous and gave Denis 33 of them...he always wanted to have a Timber Decking in the Garden for these long hot Summer Days that are coming {or so he hopes} and the construction of a new Compost Area so with a few small alterations to some of the Pallets and a lot of Back bending he can live his dream...I'll lend a presence and give him advice on what to do but that will be the limit of my Physical capabilities so he will have to do the hard slog while I'll give him the ocassional sympathetic Grunt...Denis also managed to get a load of Cardboard Box'es to flatten out and cover some new Beds which he won't be using til' next year great for keeping down the Weeds and it eventually breaks down into the Earth...The Shopkeeper was delighted with the cleanout and we were equally delighted with our haul...so lots of Happy Bunnies all round...

Yesterday Morning I managed to dismantle several Pallets and store the Timber away...we {Denis} also delivered several Bags of Timber Off-cuts to a few People and finally managed to completely empty the Water Butt and place the new Steel Frame under it... some of the finer/clean Timber I will use to make up Picture Frames to house large Family Photos which would be too large for your average Frame...and far too expensive to have made up

Denis and Mary are heading to Dublin early tomorrow Morning for the Weekend, but depending on the Transport Strike Denis may have to stay there as he has another Hospital appointment on Thursday next...

Brought Miss Daisy Shopping this Afternoon...ended up having to get a Trolley for myself so as to lean on it as we walked around the Store such was the Pain in my back...no luck with the Back Support yet ,having trouble getting my size... Picked up a load of Easter Bunnies / Eggs for the Grandchildren so that's another Trip on the Planning Board to Dublin and Cork...

Nothing else to report...the Weather here has been pretty OK over the past Week only a slight drizzle today and the same tomorrow though the predicted Rain for yesterday never materialised and I got a load of washing out...{a mans work is never done} haven't the nerve to tell Miss Daisy "Mothers Day" is over...

Sounds like great use of the pallets! I like Miss Daisy already! The Catalans celerate Mothers Day in May so if she has any sense she'll hold out till then LOL

She's way ahead of the Catalans...She celebrates Mothers Day every Day...
