One thing that comes to the fore with the interests we have is that the old adage about putting a quart into a pint pot does get revised.
 
Once we start collecting we need to become experts at packing plus storing and the phrase is often changed to putting a gallon into a pint pot!
 
Looks like a good load you retrieved from the caverns -  had a load of sprayers from the caverns a few years ago.

So you thought you were emptying those caves down in somerset!I did hear that Mr Wallingfield was  in deepest W Sussex the other day, emptying another barn ! He's brought that much stuff back its over flowed to where he normally parks his caravan!
He was caught the other day hiring a excavator from Yeovil plant hire!
