They say every cloud has a silver lining and I was in doubt of this yesterday after taking my car for its MOT and it failing for the first time ever. I now have been relieved of my car until its fixed, walking ahoy!
So on my walk back yesterday I noticed that someone had fly tipped some wood at the end of the close. Normally things are not left out on the road side here for fear of being fined by the council so was quite curious to see what was there. Trying to be subtle i edged over to the stash and had a sneaky peak. I saw this:
With it being day light at this point and some of my neighbours already thinking I'm a bit of a fruit loop I didn't want to hoick it over my shoulder and carry it back so decided to bide my time. I went home and pondered the right time to launch 'operation junk retrival' all the while worrying that some one was going to pinch it.
Darkness fell and that is when I made my move, walking quickly I got to the spot as was relived it was still there. Table in arms I rushed back only to be spied by one of my elderly neighbours, he gave me a wink and said 'Good Evening' and left it at that...he's a good 'un.
So I am now in possession of my freebie junk table and am awaiting a dry day so I can get some serious sanding and painting action done on it. I just know its going to be a beauty!
