I was bl**dy knackered at the end of each day, in fact I only had enough energy at the end of the day to open a beer
You mean the wife didn't open the can for you!!!!
That's exactly what I was thinking!
But I know the feeling, after a day of hard manual labour! I suffer every Wednesday, when I've been 'rangering.' Lopping, sawing, dragging (small) trees to the bonfire, digging ditches, coppicing, you name it, we do it. And we don't even have a garden at home, so I hardly have any experience (or muscle for that matter, though that is slowly improving). But I thoroughly enjoy it! Nice, healthy, hard work in the fresh air, rain or shine. We, volunteer rangers, don't stay at home when the weather is foul, or too hot!
As I said earlier, some great entries in the competition. Will be difficult to make up my mind.
Mike we are expecting winning shots from you, with that new camera.
But not for the Halloween competition though, that one I am going to win! (Who volunteers to set up the threads and poll?)
Actually, I have been out and about today to get the shots in for the Halloween thingy. So far quite pleased.
