I leave him alone for ONE DAY and he sets fire to the plot!
He went down to fix my shed roof, but unfortunately we didn’t have enough roofing felt left… things look a lot smaller when they are higher up!
So he saw a big pile of scrap wood and decided to ‘get rid of it’ for me. What a diamond.
I decided that i would pop down in my lunch hour to see how it was going and treated my little worker to a chippy lunch. So civilised.
He is a good egg though, and by the time I finished work for the afternoon he had done so much hard work!
I know it doesn’t look like much, but he has managed to clear our so much rubbish and has even discovered a concrete path and plinth which appears to have once had a shed on it.
Sadly all of those nettles and weeds behind him are part of the abandoned “wildlife plot” next door. This is great for hedgehogs, but is awful for us to try and keep the weeds away and the foxes out of the chicken coop. His next job will be to build a nice pallet fence to keep out all of the big brambles and make it look a bit neater.
That big brick structure is connected to our old rotten potting shed (which we will one day repair!) and it blocks off a nice big space behind it.
This will be all knocked down as soon as MrT gets himself a sledgehammer and will hopefully be the site of a new brewing shed for those cold winter days when a bacon cob is required.
He has managed to clear the path around the back really well, and has dug up tonnes of broken glass which seems to have been dumped inside the old (now demolished) air raid shelter.
Now its just a waiting game for his next few days off to get smashing and crashing his way through that old building!
