It must be every builder's dream to have eye contact with you, Hayley. :-D ;-)

I expect you will look even younger on Monday when you get in to investigate!! You ladies all look younger as you mature - just takes a bit longer in the morning. :-D ;-)

Pity really. Wrapped up in your coat and scarf when you pop out for a 'breath of fresh air' and you could have had an interesting interlude ;-)

Well, they are Island. I wickied it so it must be right :-D I never get confused by "theoretical class". And "tether propulsion" is more scietifically described as "a kick in the a........rmchair" :-)

I now have my sensible hat on, I too was confused for a while as to why it would be left half way up the building.

Having thought long and hard I have come to the conclusion that it is for elf and safety. Just in case some of the local yoof after a night on the razz happen upon it and decide to climb onto the platform, imagine the trouble if one of them was to fall off and break his stupid neck.

Now, how it gets up and down is another matter, again I suspect pulleys from the roof.

Anyway, Hayley we look froward to your Monday morning update, make sure you are wrapped up warm, especially if there is snow on the ground !! M
