Hubby bought a new loft hatch to finish off the hall as the old one was so yukky. We also need a new mains electric smoke alarm. The ceilings should be ready to seal with a watered down emulsion by Wednesday, Thursday. Once that's all dry we can crack on with the painting. We need to fit in a trip to Ikea to order the wardrobes for 2 of the bedrooms. We have always fitted Schrieber wardrobes to our properties but they don't seem to be trading anymore.
The front garden was quite overgrown, its only shrubs planted in pea shingle but it was scruffy so I spent yesterday hacking everything back. Then I weeded all the block paving before spraying with a tough weedkiller to inhibit further growth. As I walked into the kitchen to make a cuppa I saw this chap in the garden......a European woodpecker. He was a beautiful pale green with a red stripe on his head. I took some video but I cant work out how to upload it. I will once i work it out.
Garden photos to follow. Bye for now. Tx
