Of course it's much too heavy to easily use, it really does weigh a ton, and I was about to at long last throw it away, after years of shuffling it around inside the shed, when I had an idea.
This is my idea. I've turned the old shovel into a garden ornament by painting the shaft shabbily and sticking a resin robin I bought for a couple of quid at a discount store. I like whimsy and this, I like to think, is as whimsical as you like - or rather I like, and I really do. So much so that I may start looking around for some more old tools to whimsify.
