Well done chicklet. Glad your cold is getting better, Chicky.
We stacked 2 more trailers of logs. Then we went to the tip with a load of rubbish in the small car towable trailer, 20 mins drive away, wished they hadn't moved it. Then we thought we'd get some pea gravel from the quarry as we had the trailer and it was in that area. Spent ages looking for it, their sign had blown down in a gale. Had to phone a friend for instructions. They said they will deliver small loads too so a 1 1/2 ton load is coming on Tuesday for the drive in front of the house.
The chap who cuts my wood told me he does garden and grounds maintenance so he's spent the day whizzing round with a strimmer and cutting branches that were too low off trees. He's a local Frenchman. Such a relief, the young man (English)who came last year can't come any more. The French one seems very efficient and tough.
