I had some work planned today (actual work overtime style) so didn’t expect to get into the garden. However, the servers behaved and it took just under 3 hours (9am-11:30am) instead of the planned 5 (9am-11:30am), and I couldn’t resist getting the saw out and having another go at the deck. I was feeling pretty positive and upbeat and that translated into a serious amount of work. The deck is now gone, with Grete’s help, and we can finally use the garden furniture we bought several years ago without having to sit in the grass. Now we just need to tidy up the metal brackets in the walls, sort out the wood that we have to leave in (it’s supporting a fence panel but needs repairing and protecting) and then see what we’re going to do with the concrete. We’re looking at modular decking at the moment which you can just lay on top of solid surfaces.
Bubbles isn’t happy – but she’ll adapt.
