We have now got to a point where we need a roof, I mean apart from the searing heat and having welders working above us its no problem, but we cant get the wall in place untill its got a lid on so we are downing tools from tomorrow until it is safe to work there.
seems somehow pleasing to an old socialist to be walking off site but at the same time a little worrying if thats one of the defining features of socialism. I shall ask Sween what he thinks...
Doz continues to sprinkle sweat as liberally as his bad jokes (the Malaysian boys humour him like only Malaysians can). Ed, Naz, Ronny, Mark and the rest of the team politely avoid the subject of pink skinny legs that appear to hang out of his shorts though its pretty obvious they enjoy having him around anyway.
The next stage is the main wall itself, now the frame is up we have to get on with the complicated task of sculpting the climbing face and assembling a frame to mount it on. I have a feeling that I should have been a bit more competant with my mechano set as a kid but once I discovered air guns all thoughts of mini engineering were replaced by the sound of breaking glass... not a worry though, our engineers and consultants have it pretty much worked out, its a case of putting in the graft now.
