Unlocking my inner-child!

Home » Blog » Unlocking my inner-child!

It's been a quiet few days on site. Most of the guys finished for Christmas last Friday with a select few staying on to put right some of the damage to the access road caused by the heavy lorries.
It soon became apparent that in this frost any kind of spade work was impossible, so all that could be done was a "down tools" and head for home. The marina is completely frozen and I have to confess that I couldn't resist testing the thickness of the ice by walking onto it down the slipway. After a few tenative steps and much groaning and creaking (the ice, not my knees!!) the grown-up inside me pointed out to my inner child that this was not perhaps the wisest thing to try so I inched my way back to the edge.

When I got home, out of earshot of the children, I told Angus about how foolish I had been, only for him to confess that he had nipped down to try exactly the same thing a couple of hours earlier.
