Today was wonderfully warm and I was feeling too lazy to walk the dog uphill on the South Downs Way so we both settled for a stroll around the yard…
I mean, is that meant to be funny?!!!
It’s a jolly good job that I wasn’t planning strawberry pavlova or a fresh strawberries and cream for a dinner party this weekend… that’s all I’m saying.
Graham. Keith. Matthew.
I could’ve been warned that there would be monster trucks and digger dancing and Evel Knieval would be performing earth flattening tricks out behind the kiln dried shed*.
That’s all I’m saying.
I could’ve not gone blabbering on about being knee deep in flipping strawberries.
That is all I’m saying.
But this is life people, this is the aggrandization of the air dried yard facilities. Who wouldn’t want that??!!
It’s augmentation, it’s expatiation, expansion, enlargement, development.
In a word people… it’s progress. Just plain old fashioned progress. And when digger dancing comes to Cocking Sawmills you just don’t stand in it’s way.
And I can tell you right here, right now, that the ‘progress’ that happened to this vast expanse of chalk downs has resulted in a surprise improvement that may or may not have been Tom’s intention…
it is now the perfect place to sunbathe.
So. if we just get a few deck chairs, a few sun loungers… a picnic table or two and a couple of parasols dropped off over the back. Perfect.
I haven’t asked Tom yet what he’s planning for out here, but it would do very well as a small beach.
I have measured up and there is at least enough room for an olympic size swimming pool, and possibly a velodrome if we could just move the Ash over a bit.
I’m just going to go and ask Peter if we’ve got any decking in stock…
He still exists http://evelknievel.com/
Don’t tell me you’ve never gone to the Ardinlgy show just to watch the digger dancing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_81dv2V8mT0
