The weekend at the house included a fair bit of demolition in the garden. And I wish I could take credit for this, but to be honest, I’m a bit pants at the whole DIY thing and have the upper body strength of a flannel (not sure that even makes sense! Either way, I’m a weakling.)
Joe was an absolute trooper and bashed out the concrete posts on the front which will eventully give room for us to build a driveway. He had the most enormous blister on his hand that I have ever seen by the end of the day. But he was in his element. D’awww.
I was given the challenge of kicking down the weedy little fence at the front which was already half falling off. As you can see, I wasn’t very good, and Amy just watched and laughed (which is typical because she is as strong as Hercules.Sisterly love eh?)
Following this “success”, I was then given a task in the back garden; to trim some trees/bushes. Sounds simple enough. But I couldn’t even get the chainsaw running…
The petrol was run out I promise! (That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it…)
Anywho, we eventually got it going, and I managed to break about 2 twigs after some help from Andy (Joe’s Sister’s hubby-to-be) before going off on a strop because I’m just bloody useless.
This blog should be re-named “Karen fails at DIY“. I will get some videos of Joe up soon to show you how to really do up a house.
