Not another bl**dy garden centre!

27 Jun

Those who know me, understand that gardening is very low on my list of interests! For example, on a scale if 1 to 10, where 1 is Hate It and 10 is Love It, sailing is 10 and Gardening is – 50!

So my heart sinks when Mrs R says “I need something for the garden”. This time it’s to B&Q where we buy a hole for the garden. A hole for the garden? Yes, this is a big plastic spike that screws into the ground, to support a rotary dryer. Very clever – coarse threaded screw, with a tommy bar (throw away after use) and it even has a tiny spirit level to make sure it’s screwed in vertically (I can predict that won’t make much difference)! All for £14!

I get so grumpy when I’m forced round DIY and Garden Centres that I’m thinking I ought to go and see a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist! There must be something wrong with me. And it upsets Mrs R when i am like that, which is never a good idea.

The young lady serving us looked quite hurt when I told her I hated coming to B&Q. She said she couldn’t understand why anybody would say that! I forget to tell her that I once had a meeting with David Quayle, the Q in B&Q!

Anyway we’ve now got a rotary dryer ‘hole for the ground’ thingy. The laugh is, I’m pretty sure that rotary dryers are not sold in France!!
