Before breakfast and the weather forecast was for rain at 4pm. "Let's start early." said David. So we did. The Gazelle was brought into town by his Mum and I picked him up whilst David started making the concrete. Half way through we realised that a ton of concrete mix was nowhere near enough. I ordered some more. Would it come this afternoon? Possibly. It didn't. However The Gazelle wondered whether the pile of coarse sand and stones that I had inside my gate would do. Duh. How could I have forgotten about that? So we used them but when we had used all the cement and mixture we were left with this tiny bit to do:
A phone call to a friend up the road and we were in business again.
I'd show you a picture of the final result but for the fact that at 4pm the rain started and we had hastily to cover all the new concrete up before the rain did too much damage. When the rain stops I'll show you.
