Spring has arrived and we are building a drain.

Today is the first day of spring,  lovely warm sunny day not a cloud in the sky but Leeroy decided to stay inside and try the new mat out, she is very fond of it, lately she has been spending the morning on my bed but today the floor and mat is the most popular place.  


 Where the beer fairy and I and of course Drummy are putting  in a drain and bricking up the back area to one level.




 We are using a FBH to break up the concrete, not as hard as I thought it would be.


 All done but we are tired now finish it tomorrow, well maybe not as it's going to rain.
 The beer fairy doing some tiding up.


Now it's time to sit by the outside fire and drink hot tea late afternoons and nights are still cold here.
We are in for two days of rain so no more out door work for a few days I'm off to visit my daughter, talk to you soon.

    1. We had floods in the last couple of years not much but the laundry often is damp with a bit of a smell about it.

  8. It's cool here, too, after a long spell of too much heat. I needed a jacket last night, or a warm place to snuggle, like Leroy.

  13. I haven't blogged in a while and playing "catch up!!" Now I see how you did the drain!! I'm going to have to check into something like this for our patio to help with the rain run off!! Possibly redirect the water into the garden boxes instead into the grass. Which then makes mud!!
    I'm really impressed with your brick laying!! Looks awesome!!

    1. This drain was easy to install, it just clicks together but don't know any thing about it, it was left by my son so the price was right too.

The last 2 weeks.

I like this fence is just a bit different and very neat, mine is falling over so I will get a new one soon, maybe. Wilbur on the swing,...
