Dodging Showers

Well it’s been a few more days of tail chasing. Trying to get the garden sorted in the gaps between the showers, Karen has persevered and managed to get a lot of the seedlings in under Brocks critical eye,
and Sox helping out as only he knows how.
If it brightens up there is going to be a lot of fruit about again this year judging by the amount of blossom and bees about.
As for me I have been trying to keep the grass and weeds under control, albeit not very successfully.
Been down to T-A a couple of times to measure up and check measurements, working on the principle of measure twice and cut once.
The front of the wheelhouse is starting to take shape.
At the moment the joints are only pushed together to see how it looks and the clamps are holding where the hinges will go to collapse the framework. It’s going to be about 5 inches lower than the original but the difference is quite noticeable. Don't know why we were given so much headroom.
The framework will be pinched together with a few screws so it can be offered up to check the fit before being assembled properly. With it being such a nice day today I had hoped to get a bit further but sods law saw the electricity being cut off all morning while the eccletrixity board connected up a new pole over the road.
Two days of rain forecast but hopefully we’ll get down to T-A for the big test before long. Fingers crossed that it will fit.
