The Bedsock arrived home on Friday night and took one look at the greenhouse (see blog below) and said "We'll have to get in a man!".
The Sock can see his point of view - it is rather more deconstructed than expected and the Bedsock works away from him all week so we only get weekends together and some of those in the near future are already taken up with other business. It took almost the entire weekend to remove the decaying shed to make way for the greenhouse and we will need to erect some new trellis against the back wall and also lay a course of bricks to stand the greenhouse on as the existing concrete plinth isn't exactly level.
Nevertheless the Sock would really like to give it a go ourselves and the greenhouse suppliers said that even an idiot could do it. Yes... the Sock thought that too. It is true to say though that the majority of work and lifting will end up with the Bedsock but it would be a real achievement to construct it and the Sock doesn't mind (too much) if it takes all summer to complete.
So the Sock has decided to put it to a poll and there is one to the right of this post. Vote Sock if you think we can do it ourselves and Bedsock if you think we should get in a "man".
