Funny how things get lost in translation..
I’ve always known the expression as a “Heath. Robinson” idea.

Never knew I was wrong or where the expression came from.

you're far from wrong Boyo .... if it's a bit 'heath' .... it's usually way out/wacky or damned nigh on impossible / defies all reason

Google him for his artwork ..... some masterpieces of 'lateral thinking'

Phone call this afters ..... me mate the tree surgeon ..... "got any room for some more?"

"Aye fetch it up Clive"

and got about a dozen discs split up after the paint brush got cleaned.

give the bag lifter a try out in the a.m., to get those three bags out the way, sharpen Charlie's chain ....... and go again !!!

Clive saw the bag lifter on the bench and said "ooh, a bag lifter - how much to make me one of them? .. just what I want "

there could be some barter negotiations coming up!!

been busy lopping and chopping all day







spent way too long stood in the sun today ....
not used to it and feeling pretty ropey by 18.00 .... despite loads of fluids through the day .... been an amazing 23C all day ... another day'll see it all done ----- I hope
If it's this warm again tomorrow, it might be a 'packing day' .... absolutely knackered, now I've recovered from the 'too much sun' ropeyness
4 cages and a load more bags to pack
