Dig dig dig it.
A year after the pikey delivery men destroyed one of my gate pillars we have finally gotten around to starting the prep work needed before the much more fitting new ones are delivered. Given that we where digging holes and mixing concrete for the footings (each pillar weighs a ton) the weather of course obliged by turning the ground into a quagmire, with driving rain making work the usual pleasant experience winter in northern England is. My contribution to the day consisted of lots of pointing, swearing, shouting and limping.....par for the course in fact.
