Demolition - Not when it's p###ing down !

We've been knocking down walls and stripping ceramic tiles off the remaining walls of our bathroom/toilet for the past few days, it's so therapeutic slamming a sledge hammer or even the electric jackhammer against walls - so much destruction = so much pleasure.

However now I'm down to the bottom parts of the walls that are going and the rubble piles up where you're trying to demolish. So you start carrying bucket loads of rubble out to the wheelbarrow parked outside the back door, this in itself is not a problem, it's then having to traipse across the garden to the rubble dump in 50kph winds that are sending the rain horizontal. NOT FUN!

So I'm having a little break until the weather settles down again, it's just not nice working indoors in soaking workclothes and that's with wearing waterproofs when outside.

Time for a nice strong coffee I think.

I think the saying is 'Red sky at night, shepherd's delight. Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning??

Hi MS

Your comment is unfortunately against the wrong article - never mind - it should refer to http://witsinfr.blogspot.com/2009/01/its-little-red-this-morning.html

However I am sure that there are many different variations of this saying, this is how I remember it. In fact my memory is also borne out by The Phrase Finder at http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/red-sky-at-night.html
