Quick. Fill in the hole while nobody’s looking.


So when the neighbours were out at work, we blocked up the road for an hour with this huge great cement mixer, which discharged about fifty wheelbarrowloads (is that an imperial or metric unit?) of wet concrete and they went straight into our footings. All that digging, and the whole thing got filled up in 45 minutes. Great fun for five year olds to watch. Alex got all the builders a beer from the fridge afterwards.
