I admit to hitting snooze a few times this morning after a late night plodding away on the computer but was up before 7am only to miss my lift out to the shed. After a few more minutes to wake up I spent the morning tackling all those tricky jobs, emails and phone calls I’d been putting off.
It was off to the shed to join the team after a productive morning. I arrived in time to sit down to lunch at the laminating table to paw over various product catalogues.
The afternoon was spent learning to Laminate sheets of foam that will make up my dodger, discussing the latest options with Neil the electrician and Iain the mechanic, helping Steve remove the quadrant and a visit from Peter the representative from International Paint to discuss the preferred colour scheme; Pink!
Dad received today’s hero award for removing the ‘something’ that we’d all been avoiding. After there was nothing left to remove and all excuses were used we all took a deep breath and Dad proved his complete dedication by removing to dunny! I had to try very hard to keep a straight face as Dad frog marched toward to skip with the toilet held at arms length.
My other important role lately is ‘template’ I’m required to sit, stand and pose so that measurements can be taken and the dodger, engine box and targa frame can be constructed to fit me perfectly.
Knock-off time was 6pm and it was my weekly turn to cook. My time management skills were put to test as I juggled and burnt a million things in the kitchen while discussing how best to present project management schedules over the phone.
I’m off for a bit of sleep before it all starts again tomorrow!
