Ragging the walls and more Cobblestones
Round two on the floors at the new Reading store had Colin taking over completely after about 5 hours of squatting and shifting across the floor. I couldn't take it anymore! My knees and butt were worn out and any muscles found in the gluteus maximus were being rediscovered with a vengeance and they begged me to be kind and knock it off!!

Decor: Making "Pottery"
