After clearing away the nettles, we came across this big old concrete post, it must have been 10 foot long and it weighed a flaming ton I can tell you. So the three us sat and stroked our heads for a while and then decided to try and get it up, it was hard but we're spunky so we gave it our best shot.
Jack went and grabbed a couple of large chisels and he and I got either side, stuck them underneath and lifted slightly off the ground. Every time we got it up slightly higher, Emma stuck a brick underneath to support and then eventually a tree stump. After much heavy lifting and back straining, we managed to get the one end about 2 foot off the floor. From the path it looked like a cannon, we made the smart decision to leave it there for now and hope to Freda it doesn’t fall on anyone.
Yes, it was time for another tea break. Jack and I had to do our Evaluations on how we think we have progressed while working on the project. The three of us sat out on the grass by the cabin, taking in the sun while it was here. As May is national walking month, we felt a good ramble around the Fold was needed, so after the evaluations were complete, off we went.
We begun by peacefully strolling around the fishing lake, watching a family of Canadian Geese go about there day. Then headed down to J.Rs Corner (my secret spot) and walked along the river side, listening to the water run down hitting banks either side. My moment of the day this week would have to be me and Emma spotting a fox running right towards us, then spotting us and running back. After our eventful and scenic route, we headed back and packed up for the day.
