New gates

We had to put new gates up this week, tall ones so the chooks won't be able to get over them. We bought three gates wooden gates in B&Q. DH dug out the old posts and cemented in new ones, and then set about attaching hinges to the new gates. That's when we noticed that the gates didn't match - we had two matching, and one odd.

Same manufacturer, same model, same bar code, slightly different gates. Our local B&Q didn't have any more (sounds familiar), so we decided to try one a little further afield. Before we went I checked the manufacturer's website, to see which design was the current one. Neither. They now have another design, same model. How frustrating!

"Fortunately", the other B&Q had all three designs in stock. We then took the odd one back to our local B&Q, and they weren't interested in why we'd taken it back.

The new gates look lovely though. Very happy with them.
