We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Carriage trade

Seth and Lemuel, the caretakers, are not happy bunnies. Two palettes' worth of kit has arrived here destined for the SureStart Resource Centre over in Cocinoco. Mary's told the boys that it all needs to be shifted over today as a matter of urgency.

"Why couldn't it have been delivered straight there?"

"There won't be anyone there."

As we don't have a forklift the only way to get it on the van is for them to break open the packing and lug the stuff on a box at a time. They then drive over to the Centre to find that someone's on site eight to five every day. When they get back they mention this to Mary.

"Well, I wanted to see what it looked like when it arrived anyway."

It looked like a couple of big cardboard boxes stuck on palettes. I hope that assuaged her curiosity.
