So after a short nights sleep, filled with three lots of Ibuprofen and paracetamol before, during and after, I went back out to complete the job I started yesterday. Last night I had two hot water bottles in succession on my lower back between 6-10pm last night, they made a huge difference.
Anyway, after breakfast I pulled the tools out.
I also optimistically fetched the chainsaw from deep inside the garage where I stored it about three years ago if I recall correctly.
Now being a Stihl, I know it is a decent bit of kit.
But I expected to be pulling and pulling and pulling and swearing for some time.......
However, seriously, it started on the third pull, without the choke.
What a shock.
So I cut back some branches by hand, then followed the stump side with the chainsaw.
What a pleasure.
Getting them all out, and then the branches from yesterday as well.
More there than it looks. Cleaned up, will pack them away on Monday.
After cleaning up and packing the tools away, I got my faithful cordless drill that Craig gave me and and a 13mm bit, plus a bottle of concentrated Roundup weedkiller.
Resulting in this........
Covered it all over n an old rubber car mat and plonked a concrete ornament on top of it.
That's me done then for now.
A Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all who check in on this thread daily, weekly, regularly.
Have a wonderful Festive season and let's make 2017 another good year.
Even though it's still a few hours before prezzie time.
