A ton of materials

Well it finally arrived, our top up order for cane materials.....all 900 kilos of it and we had to manhandle it from the lorry to the store shed. The van arrived at 9.30am and amazingly with the drivers help the whole lot was off the pallets and inside the store by 10.00am. No mean feat as the driver is no spring chicken either and we were all wielding cartons weighing upwards of 25 kilos. (Like the doctor said, it's unlikely we'll ever have osteoporosis).

But there was a price to pay next day - one bad back and a clicking hip! Serves us right really for thinking we're still about 18 years old, the last couple of days have seen both of us creeping around gingerly. Now I've got some catching up to do, the 8 foot long Danish table top won't polish itself, but I just couldn't muster up the energy to do it somehow.
