Holidays @ Home :-/

Two weeks off and for the first week glorious sunshine. We were going to do a cycle trip if the weather was good (which it was) or take a short notice trip somewhere warm if inclement (which it ain't) where do we end up? At home! The Memsahib decides it would be nice to stay at home seeing as it is so nice and potter around the house (for that read DIY). Before you can say 'but dearest' I'm out in the garden stripping the wet roof off of the summerhouse and replacing it with fresh felt and Batton and that's were we stop; because we do not yet have the top dressing for the roof, that will be here middle of next week. New glass is on order too for the window and doors of aforementioned summerhouse, but that's not here yet either. Move swiftly across to job number 2, the pond. It requires the liner raising up to make it deeper and a top dressing/seat applied around the top. Once again I'm stripping back a previously finished job and improving, shall we say, the structure that already exists :o Three days later and that job is finished, interspersed with some horse riding shenanigans and guess what? The glass is here. So we pick up the glass and its back to the shed; excuse me, summerhouse and we replace the glass. It has to be said that once completed it is a much nicer place to sit and wile away the time (not that we'll be doing much of that I dare say). As we speak I AM sitting in the summerhoose sipping a beer whilst the Memsahib is up at the yard seeing to the horse. The pond is complete, the summerhouse awaits its new roof dressing and I; well I am awaiting the next job :-)
