The arrival

The bench has arrived, its inscription and plaques still wrapped up, and the truck driver cursing the small lane he had to traverse to get it near to the site.

Tonight the bench is one of my Mum's outbuildings, awaiting the preparation of its site. I have bought the concrete to embed two metal straps around the lower cross bars and also for the four concrete foot-pads.

Still more to do.


  1. Lovely to see your bench on our walk this evening.
    We enjoyed 5 minutes sitting looking at the view. It's the perfect spot.

  2. Thanks.

    This evening I started to cement the metal straps in to hold the bench more firmly on its stand. Three walkers past by and we all had a nice chat.

    Perhaps I should have said it is nice to have a chat whilst sitting and staring.
