I’m not gonna tell you patience is a virtue.... I’m not gonna tell you time flies when you’re having fun... and I’m not gonna bombard you with cliches, but I will say this... Sometimes, when the chips are down, you’ve just got to suck it up, roll with the punches, turn the tables, and take the paint on the glove.

Lil, Dave, kev, shaz, hil, Claudia, Chris and Rosa did just that as they painted two picnic benches/tables and oiled the bejesus our of a really really heavy bench.

They got stuck in, came out swinging (their paint brushes), greased the wheels, ducked for the line, turned on the after-burners and got the job done...

They think it’s all over...

Well done all.
