So before starting the next line of thatch, it was time for a trim. This isn't the final trim, but I needed the excess for the next line. This does give an idea of how it will look at the end. It will be cut at an angle, hoping that will make it look realistic.
I'm also a great aunty again. My niece finally had her baby, she went two weeks overdue. She's now the proud mum of Gethin David, who was born yesterday. I've been looking for a nice teddy, and in the end I chose a Welsh Rugby Teddy, Gethin's dad is a mad keen rugby fan.
Well I did hope to have half a thatched roof by today, but I'm almost there. I know why I'm struggling at the moment, today is Mother's Day and I've tried to avoid it, not that you can. I remember the first year after mum died walking into the supermarket and seeing this huge display of cards, it took me by surprise, so much so that I walked out again. The trouble is my birthday follows Mother's Day, now that is followed by the day mum died. So March is no longer a happy month, perhaps Gethin's birth will bring a change, I hope so.
All for tonight, another cold night ahead. Stay warm folks.
