Plot 44 begins to look like an allotment on Friday 6th January 2012

Friday 6th January 2012 can go down as the day when those plans I had drawn on paper at home began to take shape.
 I had been eager to begin work on the plot but as with anything task like this it is knowing where to start and staying focused on the task in hand.
 A few previous attempts had had me doing bits all over the place without actually achieving any change . Well today was the beginning of the change .
 I arrived on my own mid afternoon armed with a tape measure , the plans I had drawn up , a spade and a pallet with the intention of putting the pallet in the ground to act as the start of a fence.
Before I knew what was happening a friendly chap ,called Billy, had introduced himself, told me I was digging in to drainage ditch ,viewed my plans and began digging . It was perhaps what I needed to get me going. He told me to lay a plank down to mark out straight edges and then turn the ground over in the marked out area. In less than two hours what had once seemed a mountain now felt like a mole hill . I had been set on a course and now it was up to me to make it possible.

Not quite to plan but at least it is beginning to take shape.
