So, as always a long list of things to do before our next guests arrived.
One of the main thing we wanted to do was finish digging the drain out the back which took us about an hour on a lovely sunny day. After that we started to tidy up the fruit garden, pruning the currants.
The other big job was to finish the pointing, little bits left in the outbuilding to do, all the lintels in the main barn to keep the little critters out and to make a skirting board in the hallway and point that in. We broke it down so not to be doing too much each day, one day for the outbuilding, one day for holes and downstairs lintels and then one day for skirting and top lintels. Looking good.
Supplies on wood were low and we wanted to make sure we had 2 full log boxes for the 4 days.
The pantry area had also become more and more of a dumping ground and we wanted to get the pantry sink in place on its frame and plumbed in so that was another big tick and gave us the incentive to tidy it up at the same time!
The usual St G day with washing, shopping and general town stuff thrown in there too and coffee with Anouk and Rene on the way back to catch up again.
Lots of little jobs done and we are ready for Sauze and Patrick.
