I realised this week that it’s easier to find hens’ teeth than someone who can erect a fence.
If you want guaranteed work, go into fencing as there are clearly not enough of these people to go round.
Even a visit to the DIY store shows a total lack of fencing.
We inherited a rather dilapidated garden fence. It’s 100ft long and has more gaps in it than the Brazilian football team’s defence.
As quickly as I fill these gaps with pieces of wood, or David Luizes as we call them, a badger or fox opens up a new one.
Our Jack Russell Ruby loves this and disappears for hours on end.
