I'm going to bore you all with more photos of the progress on the house. I must get working on some other things to take photos of. I haven't done any sewing apart from some stuff for school.
Today the foundation men poured our slab. It is all shiny because it is wet still.
The buckets are where the showers will be. Richard, our builder, says the framing arrives next Friday, and by then the drainlayer will be finished. In three weeks we will have a roof. It is going so fast. I'm going to make a little garden bed to heel in some roses and other things. I've started pillaging my garden. Richard didn't bat an eyelid when I told him where Merlin's (Mr Bunny) house would be built, and said there should be a bit of leftover timber for compost heap creating. I need untreated stuff though. I'm going to have 3 wooden bins in a row so I can turn it properly, and have the compost curing while I make a new pile. I've got a fat plastic bin, but it is hopeless for turning. I'll still use it, but it takes a long time to make compost. I'm going to have a worm farm too.
We are off out to Di and Al's place for dessert and to watch the rugby final. Di and I will probably watch a DVD. She usually has a good supply. I've got soup bubbling away. Just my usual minestrone recipe, but I had a bok choy to use instead of the usual cabbage. Should be fine. I put lots of celery leaves in too because I love the flavour of celery. I should be making all sorts of soup recipes, but why mess with perfection? My minestrone is like therapy. Delicious and full of vegetables. Yum, I'm off to have some. XXX
