Apparently we are on orange alert for a bit of a howling storm tonight.
What I really want to do is have a bath and sit in front of a roaring fire for the evening - what I am actually doing is acting as taxi for some good friends to take them out to a pub for the evening. I did mention the storms, but as they are staunch party animals it looks like my night in will remain a bit of a fantasy!!
At work today I met the new arrival - a little chestnut colt, born in the early hours of Thursday morning. It never ceases to amaze me how huge they are and how they possibly fitted into the mother a few days previously!!
Here, mostly for Neil are pictures of the wall I am working on at the moment - a picture as I was uncovering the old wall and the next one of my lime and sand mortar in the right hand sections. The first one was a bit dodgy but I am happy enough with the second.
I plan to treat the wood with a rich coating to darken it down a bit so it stands out. Hope you like it Neil
