With Jake, Alex, Nick and Tav.

Fab Five re-united. Jake’s back from touring the Scottish islands; Nick’s back from market; Alex – well, I don’t know where he’s been; and Tav as well. Jake and Tav did the digging this week, I was in the pot, Nick doing the haul and shuttle with Alex on the surface pulling the bags and emptying them out. A lot of spoil and rocks was shifted. Some banter, reminiscing about digging in the past in Hallowe’en Rift, on one occasion involving a bottle of Amoretto, a couple of spliff’s being hauled back and fro in the skip and then the pub. Work done for the morning it was, indeed time for the Hunter’s Lodge Inn!
