lovely morning this morning ..... but 'kin cooler than it looks



looks like the plum harvest is going to be pretty impressive again this year .... as long as this morning's frost didn't knacker 'em all ... was bloody white at 7.00am




had a couple of hours this afters, painting the ends of the shed .... amazing how much the sun fades Bituminous .....






sides next .... fabricator's friend job, they'll be, once I've cut under the eaves with a brush

Got the splitter on the back of the Zetor for a try earlier in the week ....

#


much better and no danger of window killing now

got this out yesterday morning ..... not been used in a while ....








BIL came down in the afternoon and's been mithering to have a go at trimming some dead out of some of the oaks ...
sun was out so thought I'd make sure this was performing OK ....
need a ton to stick on it to exercise it .... bit slow on the descent and didn't want him stuck up in the air .....

anyway .... by the time he'd arrived, 'tweren't so sunny ... bloody snowing !! ... but he was determined so dropped the mast off, stuck the forks and basket on and did what we could reach of the boom alone ... which was a fair bit .....

have spent the afternoon clearing up today and burning all the brash ..







leaving a decent lil' pile for processing
was on about coming back Tuesday for the rest, but have Clara all day tomorrow, so no time to 'exercise' the mast really ..... need to put a dumpy on a pallet for some weight and get all the rollers/slides lubed .... unless granny takes her for a walk for an hour or two ..... see what the weather's up to in the a.m.

two arrivals before 8 this morning .....
after weeks/months of no school and two weeks holiday ... her school was closed today for a 'training day' .... but her mum was in 'her' school working, as they were all back today



a welcome return from Reo .... been suffering with a bad back last couple of weeks and done sod all this month .....




eleven this morning he's laid on the wall top giving me instructions about which bits to press on, whilst gently applying pressure to his leg hanging off the side of the wall ..... the clicking and crunching noises made me cringe ..... but made him feel a whole lot better


both kept me 'occupied' most of the day ..... So hamster juice time had to wait 'til this evening after tea had been scoffed ....
cold old day to be pointing -- nasty easterly breeze, but Reo climbing the walls stuck at home and glad to be doing something







and brought me a bit of a 'project'/challenge !

managed to stitch that trough back together earlier in the week after a day in the sun ... nice and warm ..... not pretty but it's holding ok .... then knocked out a bit of a patch .... it's only got to hold some soil and compost for Pam to plant it up












it'll hold compost and the iffy bit is against a wall .

Reo is progressing well ....




covered up for the night ... get a pic in the morning ...... we've had this every morning this week




so ... one happy SWMBO ...






and the grass, etc. has been whiter ..... -3C here last night, but has been a spectacularly nice day, aside from the nippy N Easterly breeze .... get out of it and it's been lovely .... Reo's actually had his shirt off this afternoon ...... and I was in a fleece all morning, in the shade ...... exercising the block splitter

Reo turned up with this lot yesterday morning .. leccy boys had been clearing a path under the lines through his wood and had dropped this ....




lovely Cherry .... I'd have been well miffed if it'd been mine and they'd disc-ed it up ..... would've planked up nicely ... however 's fire wood now

he didn't want it as he's likely to be moving shortly and wasn't going to leave it to rot or get pinched .....








and the discs were 'shaking' already





all contributions to the wood stock greatly appreciated

Reo'd not quite gotten to the end of the wall last night ....





much to his annoyance ..... so kept it damped down all evening, 'fore covering it over for the night in anticipation of -3C again last night






which didn't materialise -- first night in a week where we haven't had the white stuff everywhere in the morning ..

Squeak brought me a present, late evening ..





sadly defunct .... not a mark on him ...... knowing Squeak and the way he carries 'em, he'd probably suffocated the poor lil' bugger .....
handsome mouse and a hell of a tail .... not yer average field mouse

anyway ... couple of hours this morning and Reo'd gotten the last bit at the corner done ....



and was on with the caps ....

he'd planned to have the upper run, up to the gate, all done tomorrow ....... 'til he got hijacked, at the garage this morning, by one of his regular customers, desperate for his time tomorrow ......so will hopefully be all done Monday evening, bar the pillar at the top of the drive, which has always been a last item.

SWMBO over the moon .... but still didn't stop the 'can you justs' coming thick and fast today .....
have spent the afternoon shifting dumpies about and dropping a couple over the trellis between her veggie boxes .... and shovelling their contents into her boxes for her .... needed topping up, by a good 4" each ...... dunno WTF that's all gone?
