BALCONY SKIP

I watched a big truck reverse into the driveway with six inches to spare on each side. A hi-vis, gauntleted driver clambered down, connected chains from the crane and manoeuvred the heavy skip to the top of the load. In two minutes the crane was retracted. The driver climbed back up to the cab, half-turned, and waved to me with a smile and an unmistakable look of triumph. Then she closed the door and drove away.
