Well bless me

I hadn't used my battery powered electric drill for at least three years and it was flat as a pancake so I put it on charge not expecting any luck and what do you know but it took the charge and held it!

So that allowed me to put up two ply squares to protect the windows and without that drill I'd have been buggered as I dont have an extension cord.

Then I turfed off the rotting recliner thats been adding a touch of class to the neighbourhood, criminy but that bastards heavy, plus a few more decorative bits of junk and I still have seven heavy planks to recover that were my front path till they floated off in the deluge!

Thats me knackered!
