Let me know if you don’t want them as I’m pretty tempted otherwise.
Hi Monkeybiz ...... I'm going to pass on those cages Boyo ... gonna make for dear storage, by the time they'm home, sorted and usable

They certainly do look stack-able from what I can see, but'd need good, tidy pallets under them to sit nicely

Good luck with them ... they are very nice ...... be better still if they were more local

Thanks Graham - I’ll have a headscratch tomorrow (been on a rugby tour all weekend and can’t really see straight, never mind think!)...

LOL MB ..... if you're within a sensible distance for collection, they're more viable .... especially if you've a selection of pallets to go under 'em ..... my vast pallet collection went when I cleared me yard ..... as usual ---- wish I'd kept more

would've been a LOT busier Saturday ....... without our little 'angel's' presence .....
but .......
she's only gonna be this size once and she makes me smile ........ which for me, is a bit of a surprise, as I've never really been 'into' 'rug rats' as a rule ..... not having had any of my own, or a great deal to do with 'little people'

First 'solo' sleep over last night, as her mummy was going off to Plymouth, for a job interview this morning and staying with her brother, down there, Sunday night.
Looked like it might be a loooooooooooooooong night, Sunday ..... she doesn't sleep much, at night



Well - it was a very looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong night ---- I did get a bit more sleep than Pam though
Clara slept until about 11pm ..... then fits and starts for the rest of the night

Pam's like a zombie today ..... she went back to bed this afternoon for a few hours and I went and did our fortnightly 'shop' to replenish the fridge/freezer/grub cupboards

Job done for another couple of weeks - hate going into town - too many germ ridden people about

day to ourselves tomorrow --- clara is with daddy all day ... bag lifter coming up .... assuming it is better weather than today
Forecast completely out today ... like winter out there again .... total S H 1 T
