Our wish to move the smelly old fuel tanks outside into the garden and lessen the risk of immolation was met with total incomprehension. Planning officials would look across their desks in complete stupefaction. We would have had a warmer response if we'd suggested building a 300 metre tall revolving statue of Homer Simpson. Now, after months of discussions over drainage, ground water conditions, insulation standards and access points the approvals have come through. At seven this morning the team arrived to begin the installation. A large mechanical digger, two white trucks and a team of seven have delivered a huge fuel tank. Like enraged worker ants they have been digging away and have excavated a hole five metres deep and four metres across. The only problem is that the hole isn't where it is supposed to be. Oh, and did I happen to mention they've uncovered the main drainage pipe ?
***** Breaking News ****** - The dreaded knock on the door. The head hocho standing there. 'Profound apologies but the digger has broken the drainage pipe'. More, possibly much more , tomorrow. The boyz of course think that Christmas has come early - smells, and lots of them ! Humans worry about smells - dogs just love them. Way to go .
