A very hectic week.
Hey people, and good day to you all.
I haven't had a chance to do a great deal to my site this week unfortunately... we're moving house, with all that it entails. The thirty plus boxes that my wife and I dutifully packed and labelled, were to my mind anyway, reasonably heavy; we were both mindful not to pack them too full, not only for our benefit, but also for the benefit of the removal men.
Two strapping lads arrived promptly at 8am and without further ado carried said boxes three at a time down two flights of stairs without even breaking into a sweat, then, upon arrival at our new home in Folkestone, they were forced to carry a leather sofa - too big for the lift - up five flights of stairs, again without showing even the slightest signs of fatigue.
Because of the fact that I've always been 'a doer', it's at times like that I feel my age, 71 in October, and although in excellent health for my years, I still long for the days when I myself could have carried sofas up five flights of stairs with impunity.
Oh well, every dog has its day as the saying goes... no doubt in time, these two able bodied hard working young men that moved us today, will be telling their grandchildren stories about how fifty years ago, they carried heavy sofas up five flights of stairs without even breaking into a sweat.
It's a funny old world.... byee -)
