We dragged both Chris's over for an excellent roast pork lunch only to hear complaints about no work being done!! Anyway it was a great coincidence to meet the very builder who built our kitchen, bathroom and utility when Pear Tree Cottage was lived in by the former Chief Constable of Worcestershire County Police: Eric Abbott. He even remembered capping our lovely chimney with a concrete slab to keep out the rain back in the 1960's. We had to tell him that we had it removed for something a little more in keeping! By the way, he was there as a ploughing competitor!!
We did manage to finish boarding the end of the shed and put in the insulation and ply lining on 3 inside walls. Chris P. in the meantime, levelled all the soil from beneath the shed and, with his chainsaw, carved 2 beautiful seats out of the old Hawthorn stumps placing them both in the little shady nook between the Laurel and the Berberis and planted them with Ferns and Symphytum.
