I’ll sleep well tonight

Just a few pics from today’s workout (on the work site from 8.00am to 6.00pm). I reckon the ‘kanga’ digger/loader is a little easier to operate than the Dingo – a bit smoother and more stable – but still, after a day on it, one discovers muscles one did not know one had! And pounding in stakes, swinging the axe and crow bar to trim tree roots and the inevitable spade work also accompanies the mechanised action.

Christopher was suitably amused when I axe-chopped into the old irrigation pipe that connects to the dam on the neighbouring property – unbeknownst to me, the pipe, that has not been used for years, held quite a head of water; which sprayed all over me and the loader.

We made a pretty good start today and I hope to be able to finish the heavy lifting by the end of tomorrow.
