Today I walk around an area of Birmingham with a 9 foot plank of wood
It’s wasn’t particularly heavy but very long considering I am 5 foot 3 . A 9 ft plank of wood doesn’t lend itself well to walking around corners, being around crowds of shoppers or entering lifts, all of which I have done with it this afternoon.
My pregnant daughter , Elle was with me as the wood was for her home to use with putting the new curtain rail up.
The woodman assured me that it would be safe to put the plank in part, out of the back window otherwise it wouldn’t fit in my car as it’s a small car
When I reached the car the wood was longer than the car, the other important fact. …I haven’t got back windows!
