Life is all about learning.
For example, this weekend I learned the following:
1. When you dismantle a greenhouse, it is worth marking it all the pieces rather than just a small and elite selection. This way, you can easily put it back together instead of holding your head in your hands and repeating the sentences "but it" should fit ’and’ I don’t understand where I went wrong ’ad infinitum
2. When stacking oak sleepers for a greenhouse base, remove your fingers before the two excessively heavy pieces of wood crush them
3. Greenhouses are like puzzles, there is always a piece missing (but unlike puzzles, it makes no sense to look for them behind the sofa).
4. Glazing brackets can travel a very long distance and are more difficult to identify with wood chips than you can imagine
5. You can never have enough glazing brackets (see point 4)
6. Leaning glass against a greenhouse is a fairly safe way to ensure that strong winds arrive immediately
Still with my father's determination and the kind advice and help of the previous owner of the greenhouse (who, quite confusing, bears the names of Nobby, Arthur) and From now on Robin will simply be a Glasshouse Guru or short & # 39; GG & # 39; be known – the structure is high.
I still have an annoying pane that doesn't fit and two missing parts, but I think these problems can be overcome.
Plus, the kids are almost as excited as I am, and Ava and Oscar kept running out to check on progress. Archie walked towards me more worryingly with a slow but determined expression, carried a soccer ball and then threw it directly onto a glass pane.
7. Always make sure you have replacement glass for your greenhouse or …
8. Never let your garden back in under 3s.
As you can see, learning never ends.
