No Craft Time Today ....

Well at least not yet anyway ....
Today, apart from spending nearly three and a half hours in a well known supermarket, I have been shovelling .... The house next door to me is empty and the builders/decorators have been in there. They had ordered a full Hippo Bag of pea shingle for something or another and only used about half of it.I have no lawn in my back garden (my son took all the grass away when he was a teenager and thought he was the man of the house and laid it to gravel, "so I won't have to keep coming back to cut the grass when you're old" - charming child - lol) so I chatted the builder up last week and he said I could take what I wanted.
So today, when I went shopping, I toddled into a well known DIY supermarket in search of a wheelbarrow and would you believe it, they didn't have one, but I found this instead ....It's great - it's a big bucket on wheels, which you just pull along like a suitcase. Bargain too at £16. I wasn't that impressed that I had to buy a shovel but I only have a lady's spade and I would have been there all day. I started off also not being impressed that I was having to do this - but was dead chuffed with myself when I saw the empty Hippo Bag - lol ....
So, all I've got to do tomorrow is rake the gravel out in the back garden - providing my aching shoulders have recovered ....
