So Wednesday passed - having lunch with Peter and Helen, Vacuuming horse poo, and working far too late, and literally forgetting to post. I'll need a holiday by the my friend with the horses goats sheep dogs & chickens gets back. Horses are work. Why are dogs, cats, pigs house-trained... and horses are not. Like budgies, they go when they want to.

Today I went and gave a friend a a hand with some rock-climbing skillz inside a high roof, and was rewarded with some 12 3"X3" 15 foot timbers, and some flooring and some nice color-bond corrugated iron - all for the cool room, which will need a floor to sit on, and a roof, and fresh cladding. I am amused to see people's faces when you walk along a 3 inch wide beam 20 feet up. It's the same beam as on the ground. I had a harness and a leash to stop me decking it.

Anyway, I am tired and stiff. But more roofed than I was...

  1. I'm slated to be up on scaffolding a little later this summer to tear siding off our house. I've already informed Dad I want to be in harness and attached to something the whole time. Funny how that little thin line makes all the difference in feeling secure.

    On a side note, I really like Bolg. Made me laugh hard at bits, and I'm looking forward to more. Thank you, as always.
