As it happens I will not be going to Adelaide after all. The business that needs to be done is no longer important enough to warrant a 500 mile round trip to Adelaide so it’s been cancelled. I was going to go down with him but there you are. Now I’ll have to stay and work if I get the call. Pity, really – I was quite looking forward to the day in the city. If there is no progress at the Hardware shop here by Wednesday I will call Port Augusta and check if they have the treated pine logs in stock. If they do I will take the trailer through on Friday and load it up. This will give me the weekend to get started. I’m really quite looking forward to seeing it finished, although I realise that this could take a little while. I tend to become impatient at times and I should learn to take things easy a little bit more. I have started to become frustrated with the cement block at the other area I am working on. I bash and smash but it never seems to get any smaller. I think the previous owner much have hired a whole freaking cement truck!! I thought gardens were supposed to be places of relaxation – how wrong was I !?!
I took the dogs out for a walk after I got changed yesterday. It was a bit warmer than I thought and I should have taken the bag with the water bottle and bowl with me. As it was the little man ( who is 10 years old – 70??) became a little bit tired so I ended up lifting him up and giving him a carry for a bit. He was quite content to be in my arm for a little while. I put him back down about five minutes from the house and he managed the rest of the way. I must remember to take the bag in future.
