Look what we found on the side of the road while we were taking the dog for a walk


I took over "walkie"  duties while Anth (in a Hurculean effort) carried this industrial (and extremely heavy) beauty home (we did try pushing it, but it was early on a Sunday morning and the noise it made was horrendous)

We took a punt it would work and

to our delight and relief it did.

So, thank goodness (it really is bloody heavy, it practically killed Anthony getting it home!) all that hard yakka was worth it. Good looking and useful too* (it's a fantastic light to paint walls by)
I can't believe someone ditched it and left it there for the taking, can you?

p.s. these things are all the rage you know...read this if you think I'm fibbing... 

* just like Anth
(ha-ha! never know when I'll need something heavy carried home again, got to stay on his good side)

  5. Wow! That is fab! And, of course, when I clocked it was on wheels I wondered why you didn't push it along.... until I read what you put about the racket it made. You are good to be so considerate to those sleeping people!

    You'll have to carry on going out on dog-walking "dates" together now - you never know what else that same household might chuck out ;) xx
