You know that jungle gym we so recently had erected for us? Well, I spent the best part of the day in taking some of it apart again.
We were supposed to go out for dinner to Sister-in-Law’s place, but both Much Better Half and Younger Daughter developed a tummy upset so we called that off. They had been out to Tala Game Reserve and Valley of 1000 Hills yesterday while I attended to chores. Maybe they picked something up there.
Anyway, the whole painful exercise is merely to raise the swing height by less than half a metre. Not much, but I think it’ll make quite a difference to the swinging experience. particularly on the round one. I had to dig and chip out the poles, remove the cross-piece which is quite heavy to manhandle alone, and then bolt extension parts onto the bottom of the supports.
Tomorrow, I have to figure out where to attach the part that goes on the hut — it is above the roof level so is going to be tricky.
Nothing has been planned for New Year’s Eve this year. Anyway, our visitor flies out late in the afternoon, and is going to the airport by chauffeur-driven conveyance. I’m glad we don’t have to do the transporting. Roads at that time on that day of the year are not fun things.
