He must be great at Tetris

I can barely get a crab croquette into my mouth with a pair of chopsticks so I was put to shame yesterday by the guy from Tidy Thames who craned a skip onto our deck. A ton of skip hanging from a couple of chains on one moving barge being dropped onto the deck of another moving barge, what could go wrong?

Floating the skip 30 feet in the air

Fortunately, nothing. Trouble is, compared to the amount of crap we have on deck, the skip is starting to look very small. Three or four loads too small, in fact. And we don’t have all that long to toss the remaining partition walls out before we need that space.
