@C8RKH it’s been proper hot today in Englandshire - not sure if it’s even stopped raining in Scotland - but I can currently understand what it’s like to be a Spanish builder 🤣 that’s the view

so just the fencing to get sorted now and then the decking and summer house can be thought about

Sadly when you get outside of London - the ground is sometimes not level and you just have to go with the flow. There’s several thousand tons of bedrock about an inch under the surface where the fence is - hence why the house is built where it is - next to the stone 👍

My mates son is an "explosives engineer". He'd sort that out for you in no time @Barrykearley

He's only very young and he's a great laugh. People ask what he does for a living and he just gives them a deadpan, bored look and says "I blow stuff up!, you know, bit like a Terrorist but I have a license and a nice yellow vest!"  :)

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

So I would say he was NOT the meat in the sandwich that night...

so this week has been a couple of hours here and there sinking posts into the ground

Been busy this afternoon. Decking boards all down after a delivery of a few more just after dinner. Jacko came up with the digger and found some topsoil for me while doing another task.

still unsure of exactly what rail set up we will have round the high up edges - and still unsure of the steps into the hot tub area. That will be addressed soon.

Up early this morning - quick trip to Travis to get more slate chippings.

Back home and a trip to the post office to tax the figaro - bloody thing was classified as disabled in the taxation class due to the last keeper - so couldn’t do it online.

Side of decking by the path boxed in - slate chippings laid. Then off to the garden centre again to part with another kidney for more planting.

looks a whole lot better - we actually have something that resembles a garden now.
