Bloody busy day today. My uncle came over to help out with the door frame for the back of the shell and my aunt is going to help Mum make me some curtains for the lounge.

Dad, Ray & I got the door mounted, which looks lovely, we’ve just got to cement around it and stain it.

We did some little tidying jobs like taking the broken shutter off the back window, putting up my washing line, getting the broken roof tile out of the guttering, and I’ve started to sand the shutters from the front of the shell, as it seems the windows are fine.

We all went around to Mums and had lunch, Pip and Jacques joined us too, so it was a real family affaire – poor Mum expected to cook for three and ended up doing for seven!

Its fencing day tomorrow – over my uncles in the morning, then Dad’s in the afternoon.
