Good morning. NOt a lot of sleep. OH in snore mode all night. Thank goodness he's gone to Belgium today and I can get a good sleep tonight. No chance of a zizz today as kitchen man is here plus two chaps and a cement mixer for the new fencing and another chap with a mini digger. Bonzo dog is beside himself.
It started off perishing cold but bright and sunny. The promised thunder storms didn't materialise but we have had 11mm of rain. That makes 1750mm since the 20th of Jan.
Judging by the holes for the fence posts and what we've found in the beds we've cleared so far we have claggy clay soil underneath a layer of varying thickness humussy stuff from being cow pasture. Nothing like the loamy depths we had in Belgium but our gendarme neighbour says we can have lots of horse poo for our compost so it will improve.
I have moved my new treasures from the shelter of the garage to full sun for the day and now I definitely need another large coffee.
