Working... Updated!

DB is still very busy building our second log store. Timber for the roof has been garnered from our kind neighbour J., who has an abundance of stuff!

Normally we would buy and use marine ply but once these planks are all joined together and have the felting put on, it should be watertight.

I've only managed to do little jobs due to my back. Thankfully, it didn't go completely, just kept twinging. Such a nuisance but I have been careful and it feels almost back to normal.

Dental check up this morning. Had a surface filling put in last month but pressure has been building up slowly and I can't eat on it so guess it will have to be cleared out and a new filling put in. Even though I hate the needle etc, I'd rather have a filling if possible, than lose the tooth!

Just come back from the dentist, the filling was a little high so he has smoothed it down a little and we'll see how it goes. So, no treatment and no payment even better!

DB did find a piece of wood to hang my planters from that now sit above the dustbins and they can be seen from one of our kitchen windows - which seems to help a bit to draw the eye rather than stare at the dustbins:
They look more on a tilt than showing here. We think he may have to put a square baton behind them, near their base to push them out a little, otherwise when watered, it will all rush out the front.

I have belatedly uploaded our menu for last week under the menu tab.

Onwards and upwards!

    1. Always good when nothing needs doing but still feel something will need doing eventually.

  2. That's a good idea. I'm not sure I've got much fence left. I'll invetigate and nick the idea if I find a stretch of bare fence! Hope you back fully recovers soon.

    1. We tried growing flowers in large milk cartons but they dried out too much. I think the alpines will be a bit more forgiving. Back getting better each day thanks.
