Photo Hunt: Heavy




One of our first large projects is to put up a fence at the front. We thought that would be simple, but because of the layout of the garden and a large palm tree, we have had to put up a retaining wall. The rest of the front had a lot of ugly rail sleepers, which were looking very sad. We decided to do the whole lot, so that entailed a day of digging with a bobcat and now the retaining wall is sitting in the front yard like a large lego puzzle without the instructions.

The ten pallets arrived on a large truck with its own tractor to unload the heavy load. The kids have improvised it as a stage and creative play area. We are now a little unenthusiastic about the last preparatory work that has to happen to get the first course laid. Hopefully we will get started today.

Seems like a very big and heavy job ahead of you, Colin! What are rail sleepers? Happy PH!

Oooh! Can I come and play??? I have a kick arse water pistol that shoots around corners.

I don't do heavy labour. Gets my pretty shoes all dirty. And I could break a NAIL!!! Oh the humanity...

Definitely heavy work, and a heavy load. Great photo. Have a good weekend.

jmb said...

Sounds like a lot of hard work to me. Home improvement, don't you love it.

Siani said...

Ooh, I don't envy you, with all that work ahead. I do envy the fun the kids are having, though. Have a great weekend, despite the hard work!

You mean you're going to be cruel enough to spoil the current playground? Unfair!
Loads of heavy work ahead.

Now that is a quite excellent heavy post. I love the simile: "like a large lego puzzle without the instructions", and almost wish I were still teaching Language Arts--well, no, maybe I won't go that far--but it is an outstanding image. Be sure to share the end result.

Now if that were our house, the pieces would still be there until we moved house again, when we would suddenly burst into frenzied action.

All the heavy lifting and hard work you will be doing -- ugh. Good luck!
