Comments: Patience is a virtue I do not have

Ouch! I'd recommend rest but it doesn't sound like you have the time to rest!

Reading your workmen woes and I dread starting our own works this summer although minor compared to yours.Yes works that I can afford now as I had the first jab.

I recommend acupuncture.

When I downsized some years back I thought I had been brutal with the clearout, until I got everything here and it wouldn't fit. Cue more ruthless decluttering. My place is sort of OK but I dread having to move and repeat the experience.

Has calling the small quarry yourself crossed your mind? I can't believe it has not. It has, of course, its downside.

If only we knew where it was Darren. We can't find a quarry listed where it is supposed to be, and the vague directions that have been mentioned involve going down tracks off minor unmade unadopted roads, across fields, turning left at the 5th hawthorn tree, and no chance whatsover of getting to the right place.
