Picnic Tables & Trees

We've got loads of old bits of wood and cardboard boxes that need to go to the tip but we're not going to get chance before our BBQ on Saturday so the first job when we got home was to hide it all in one of the sheds lol. Next up was the picnic table which came with a bucket load of nuts, bolts and screws, it's times like this we're glad we invested in an electric drill/screwdriver or I would have still been there now.


It went together OK but there are still a few braces to fit under the seats which we had to leave because Big Brother was starting.

We've got a real Christmas Tree in the garden but it's been planted too close to another tree, or it could be the other way around. What ever happened, the Christmas Tree seems to be loosing out and is looking a little bit lop sided.


We're in a bit of a dilemma as to what to do with them, we really want to keep the fir tree but it would be a shame to cut down the other one as that's nice too. Maybe we should keep them both and put fairy lights around the two of them in December.


There is no dilemma over this beast though, even with half of the tree already lopped off, it's still far too big for our garden and it blocks out the sun from the flowers at the top end for much of the day. We'll be a bit busy over the next couple of weekends but it's not going to escape this lumberjack, it's days are numbered!
