Scrape Me Up Before You Go-Go
1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Haringey.
- Tuesday, 12th of September 2023
There'd been an explosion in Mrs S' garden in the hot weather. It wasn't a late summer bloom of flowers, no, there were green clumps of weeds everywhere.
Mrs S brought out a nice selection of hand tools and pointed at the hand scraper, saying that it was really good, but bloody hard work! Sevan looked at the slabs, looked at the scraper, then decided that using it to clear between the slabs would have the biggest impact, even if it would be tough going.
Around 75 minutes later, the slabs looked transformed. It had felt like slow going, but the effort had been worth it. Sevan had to leave on time to make it to his next mission, so he bagged up the garden waste and spent the last 10 minutes with the trowel, pulling the largest weeds out of the flower beds.
