The second box of greenhouse arrived today. Did I open it or did I decide to be sensible and wait until the weekend, when I'd have help to put it together?
Well, inside that box is the biggest Meccano set I've ever seen and a set of instructions that could make a grown man cry. Pieces that resemble the bits of alien spacecraft that sometimes turn up on the Internet and more nuts and bolts than are contained in the Brown Gorgon's head.
It's still in the box. At least I am now free of waiting-for-delivery limbo and can get out tomorrow and deal with things. Just as well since I have to collect a sample tomorrow, which means I will be in the lab at the weekend. Typical. I wait ages for these samples and they finally appear on the one weekend I wanted free.
Although, to be honest, greenhouse assembly is likely to proceed more rapidly and efficiently if I'm not there.
By a remarkable coincidence, 'Construction Kit' was the title of the first short story I ever had published. I won't bore you with it just now, but I plan to put the whole lot on Lulu. Might be in one book, might be two, it depends on the size (more pages = higher cost per book). There'll be a cheap PDF download option too.
Now, I'm sure I had a 10mm spanner, once upon a time...
