The Slab Is Down

And no, we're not talking about a carton of beer. Saturday (the 23rd) saw the, late, arrival of a cement mixer so that I could lay a slab in front of my shed. This is to facilitate the erection of a larger shed in its place. I need more room to store my crap. And it needs to be a little more waterproof.

Yu-Jin was the official photographer for the day and he went quite sick with camera. His perspective is a bit different to mine and it is interesting to look at his pictures.



The cement mixer - and the gut



The truck's grille - whatever interested the photographer



Down and dirty



If Yu-Jin was taller there may have been more of me in the photo - I said that he had an interesting perspective. And his hand is fairly steady too.



Mum was pretty busy learning some new skills

It turned out that I had more cement than was required. We didn't even empty the cement mixer and I had an overflowing wheelbarrow load extra as well. Bit of hard work to level the pad but it turned out alright.

Hasn't he learnt a few things from his old man?



Another one of those professions that Yu-Jin would like to take up



Don't it look luvly?



What to do, what to do?

What to do with the extra cement? I did have a brilliant idea of relocating the clothes line and using the cement as a base to hold it in place. So I dug a hole where I wanted to move the clothes line to and found another septic tank there. That buggered that idea up and I ended up putting the extra cement alongside the driveway in the carport. It looks nice and I only wish now that I had emptied the cement mixer.



Wish I had more cement to finish the job off
