Phil taking out the last sod of turf in a sudden and unbelievably heavy shower, sun came out again 5 minutes later, very odd day.
But I did do my bit and between us (I've got the blisters to prove it hehe) we removed the turf and took it to the skips in about an hour, then went to order the chippings, and they charged us £12 more than a month ago, for a ton of chippings, so Phil wasn't a happy bunny.

 It seems a month ago we lived close enough to deliver free (about 3/4 of a mile) this time they charged us £12, so going back today to see what can be done about it. With the two receipts and ask why?
Plus a month ago it was delivered in 2hours and this time it's going to take 4 days, grrrrr!

ouch! created it then squashed it then busts it, so Manuka honey and a plaster.....
aarh! poor me hehe my crochet hook holding thumb too lol
Have a fun  filled day all
hugs x

    1. It was when I squashed it with the spade handle, digging with that much gusto I was lol x

  2. Ouch is right! Sometimes a small blister doesn't look like it would hurt much but they do....every time you bump it or stick your hands in some hot or warm water it becomes a painful reminder that it is still there. Now where are the band aids.....

    1. manuka honey tok care of the hurt but with it being my hook holding thumb, not good lol x

  3. You need to take care of your "hook holding thumb"! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. manuka honey took care of the hurt and a large plaster to protect my hook holding thumb did the trick, lol.
      Enjoy your holiday. x

  4. battle scars!
    it seems prices are going up all over the place!

    1. Hi Lyn I was so incensed I cancelled the order and we found it £20 cheaper, delivered today and it has got to travel 10miles, I really objected to £12 to bring it just over a mile and not until Wednesday may be Thursday. Phil thought I was mad but I was that angry about it, and determined to find it from some where else
      A Terrier comes to mind here hehehe
      Hugs x
