In a triumph over age and arthritis, and with a little help from my friends, I dug 20 tons of soil to make a trench for foundations for a kitchen extension I am building for a regular customer. Well, I drew the plans, and I do other stuff for her... I just forgot to mention that I've never dug foundations before. On Friday the building inspector said 'super job' so I must have done something right, but I've now got a bloody great 4 foot deep hole to fill with concrete and blocks, if the snow and north-easterly wind allow. Now I've got to improve my wall building skills, the last one was a bit wibbly wobbly.
On another topic, I thought my van's performance was a bit down (like it's owner) so today I set out to time it 0 - 60. I ran out of road before I hit 60, but it took a litle over a minute to make 50. Does this seem a bit slow? She's only 16 years old, should be in her prime.... I'm going to take the Sprinter badge off and get a sign that says Schnecke.
Love to all,
