I've not posted all week but I do have a good excuse - when I lifted that heavy Fucshia planter during the week I think I popped a disc in my back. I've self medicated with Tramadol all week but the pain is still unbelievable and the only position that offers any relief is lying on my side - not very convenient as my sister is here till Monday and I need to be active. I'm finally admitting defeat though and going to the docs Monday as soon as I can get in.
Anyway remember months ago when I said I wanted a fire pit for the garden? Do you remember me also asking Mr TG to dismantle and old washing machine so that I could make said firepit from the drum? Well the project is finished and the fire pit made its debut at our BBQ last night - I'm so pleased with it.
So easy to make too. In fact the hardest part was having to take it apart from the machine but Mr TG persevered with that.
Then all I did was give it a couple of coats of fire paint that we already had for our log burner and then sat the drum on the concrete ring that also came out the machine.
The heat this thing gave off was brilliant and it's going to be a real boon in the colder months.
That's all I have for today folks because I'm in pain. I hope y'all are enjoying a warm weekend.
