Daily Prompt: Unfurling time

Renovation 22.05 (3)

Renovation time is unfurling time. Since April we are being unfurled. There is a problem. What do you do with unfurled material when it is no longer furled. Of course builders have an unfurled  burial site where unwanted goods disappear.

Flower Box

Today we unfurled our planting box. This is made of asbestos cement. It appeared some years ago and served its purpose well for various plants. However, due to the renovation, it had lost its use in the garden. Since April it has been shifted from here to there, my tulips even flowered. In the meanwhile this sort of plant container is forbidden, no longer sold and classified as being unwanted due to the asbeston content. They used to unfurl asbestos everywhere in building programmes, but it has been discovered as a danger to health.

Since the builders have arrived with their various operations, this box has been shifted from here to there I even began to empty it, weekly. I no longer have the energy to do things in a couple of hours. The hours have now become days, weeks and even months. However, I had time and finished the job a couple of weeks ago. I was now left with an empty asbestos box leaning on a garden wall.

This type of  material is unwanted and cannot just been thrown onto the rubbish dump. We called our gardener, a very nice guy. He told us, no problem, but they have to pack it in special material before they bring it to its happy hunting grounds which would have to be paid for – not an exhorbitant sum. Today our gardener arrived. He carried the box on his own to his truck and it is now disappeared.

Another problem solved.

I now have to unfurl a few blogs as again and again WordPress have a probem with the grid. They call us to write, to blog, to join in the happy experience and we are confronted with a nice big fat zero on the gridding page. However, if you return a few hours later, and the blog gods are favouring you. you can re-enter your blog and everything is back to normal.

    • Asbestos was used a lot in the building trade in earlier days. It is now forbidden in many countries. There were too many people dying of asbestos poisoning.
