Sounds like a good plan Ghost!

Ah, yes. I'm so familiar with that.

Scarifying lawns :scared-eek: with a borrowed machine which makes my arms go dead after 10 minutes.
Every bloody year I do this. WHY? It's just part of what I do but deadheats with raking leaves for the number one crap job prize :twisted:

my only real day off is now in tatters the one day when I don't have to deal with work, nephews or my sister the one day when I can sleep in and not have to do anything gone...
I HAVE to go to a 3 hour meeting at work tomorrow I loath these meetings with a passion
but on the sightly more brighter side because I live so far away from my co-workers and there are no buses that early on a Sunday I get take a taxi and my work is paying for it :lol:

I've got the 'pleasure' of one of those next week, except that its being treated as overtime since it falls on my day off. However, because I am only part time I only get basic rate. (Since when has doing overtime been compulsory anyway?) Fortunately, I have managed to negotiate time off in lieu rather than cash. This is better than a couple of friends who are still owed for overtime from back in April and are still expected to do overtime even now. :evil:

That's rotten ghost.

Ghost.....I can't think of anything less likely to build team spirit than pull people in on their day off! Hopethat you can fall asleep quietly in the corner :lol:

Ooooo. I remember those days. Scarifying and top dressing this rich guys lawn and he used to complain that it looks a mess afterwards. Everytime we did it, we had to remind him how he enjoyed his visitors complimenting him on the lush green lawn and that he wouldn't had this lush green lawn if it didn't look a bit scruffy for a week or two. :roll:

And raking leaves - you have my sympathies -I remember moving 5 transit van loads of leaves of the Queens Hotel car park, only to come back from lunchbreak to find a carpark covered in leaves again :evil:

Scarifying done for another autumn...and I almost needed a week off to recover :( The wet weather gave me a couple of days respite anyway.
I always warn people that their lawn will look shabby for a while but at this time of year they're not going out to sit and gaze upon it anyway.
Tomorrow I hope to be returning the scarifier as my friend's van died about an hour after he dropped the machine off to me and it's still taking up the space in the garage where the lawnmower should be. The lawnmower is in the corner of my kitchen and I don't want it to get used to a soft life. Besides, I have to drape my fleece jacket over its handles to remind myself not to fall over it. My friend informs me that he has a new van...and that's not the kind of expense a gardener needs in the approach to winter :x

Sympathy to Ghost and Penfold :cry:

Can your friend write the cost of the new van off against taxes since it is an integral part of the job and maybe get a little money back?

Lots of sympathy for work meetings and yard work. If the weather holds out today we'll probably be raking leaves as well. I don't mind raking leaves, but we have a black walnut tree in our yard and getting those walnuts up is a nightmare.

I think he has a good accountant, Penners :D
He's calling in at about 7.30am so I'd better have the tea brewing while we load up the new van.
