I've succumbed to my daughters' requests for a trampoline in the garden. I found one that was small enough for their bit of the garden that has been allocated as the 'play area' by my OH (to protect his lovely grass) and found one that is a relatively discrete dark green rather than the blue you often see. It is also, despite being only a 6 footer, strong enough to take me - and then some -as it will take up to 100kg. It arrived and, as my hubby wasn't too keen on me getting one, I wanted to get it built before he came home. With the help of a 6 and a 10 year old and some rather dodgy 2nd language instructions we have done it. It has gone down really well with the kids and I have seen nothing of them since it was finished as they are bouncing to their hearts content. But, it was blummin hard work. I have blisters on my blisters. My back and shoulders are sore. On more than one occasion I nearly considered pitching it into the field and giving up, but didn't. Never again!
