Driveway Top-Up

This afternoon a huge truck-load of gravel arrived to repair parts of the driveway that have been dug up recently. Well it was meant to be one huge truck, but it actually arrived in a truck and trailer:

And the driver had a bit of trouble backing it in. (Apparently this was only his 4th day of driving this truck and trailer combo.) I watched him go back and forwards a couple of times, then retreated inside because I couldn't bear to watch.

25 minutes later, he had given up on that idea, and dumped the trailer load in one spot:

Then he disconnected the truck and reversed it in:
Tipped it up:
And laid a neat line of gravel along the drive:

Then someone else with a handy tractor had to spread it around so that our vehicles could be driven out tomorrow:


  1. Red tractors go faster.....job should have been done quick smart.

  2. This is exactly what I need!

  3. You won't want him back again until he's had a bit more practice with the truck.
