This is what happens when you let a very helpful delivery driver drop off some essential supplies while you are out saving the world. He phoned to say he was at HQ and where did I want it putting. I told him it was to go in the workshop but as I was not there could he put it somewhere dry so I could put it away on my return. Hence the above. Nice and dry, but not very accessible for the workshop.
After much too-ing and fro-ing all was safely stowed away and as is the way at Rock HQ any sort of project takes place under close supervision of the critters.
