Today the new roof begins. Well today the house became clad in scaffolding, the new roof should follow. Fingers crossed for no more nastier surprises than the ones we have prepared ourselves for. Still I guess they wouldn’t be surprises then… Anyhow, it is going to be stressful, and expensive. But necessary. And hopefully it will fix various damp problems too.
The cats were not very impressed and spent a lot of today glaring at the men through the window – on every level of the house too!, and I admit they had a point, it was very inhibiting, venturing out wondering if a scaffold plank will land on my head. I did enough to check the sheep and poultry, and making rounds of tea, then stayed in and indulgently sewed this cushion. Green is my favourite colour – no surprise there then, but it also seemed an apt colour choice for St Patrick’s day.
