We have each had a go at some of the major painting tasks to be undertaken! I have painted the long wall, and Ed has painted most of the poolhouse (but he then got chased off by the swallows, as they were still nesting). Now, we have also painted the pumphouse and Ed has started to render the long wall. At last, it is all coming together beautifully.
However, is is currently too hot to work outside. Ed just put the outdoor thermometer in the garden, and has hit 43.9 degrees, it was 37 in the shade.
(We have resorted to going shopping, just so the we can use their air-con, rather than buying anything!!!)
