So with all the Jubilee celebrations I knew the council would be collecting rubbish later this week than usual.
I went to the council's site and was sure I read Wednesday because Tuesday was being considered an extra day's holiday.
Now I swear they must have crept around here like mice YESTERDAY (TUESDAY)coz I didn't see them and promptly put the rubbish out last night for TODAY.
Did my workout on the bike this morning (15k) and a core workout, showered and had brekkie and then DH said "the foxes have been at the rubbish outside.....you sure they're collecting today...no one else has theirs out?"
Checked. Sure enough TODAY
SO I just spent 15mins shovelling up our rubbish into fresh bags and putting it back in the bin, thinking I'd get it done b4 the rain came again but I got caught out and got DRENCHED. I had to finish what I'd started as it was blowing up a wind out there and I could imagine all our garbage littering the entire road...not very pleasant.
Came in looking like a drowned rat and have just had another shower.
Lesson learnt; read instructions on collection dates more carefully in future.
Oh joy of joys.. DH has just announced we're clearing more stuff from MIL's this arvo and going to the dump. Another shower will be required I fear
