So let's move on to what I did today. I dabbed black soot on to the render, and the brickwork. I finished off the porch, gave it a few coats of paint, then gave it the black soot treatment. I tiled the small roof, and then painted it. Once everything was dry it was fixed into place, porch first, then roof and then the fancy bit, last was the step which had been suitably scuffed and distressed. The door just requires its handle.
I gave the side and back walls another coat of paint. Yesterday I just sanded back the join between the two lots of render, I felt it was a bit noticeable. I used some black soot on the bricks and render. There will be a lean to attached to this side of the house.
We've also had some fun and games elsewhere in the neighbourhood. If you've seen the news then you may know that a demolition firm tried to blow up two tower blocks on Sunday, only it didn't work, both blocks remained standing until one eventually fell down some two hours later. The other however, refused to fall down. They tried again today... same result, tower block is still standing! They must have built them very well back in the seventies.
Harvey has the sulks, he's realised that our new neighbour has two cats. One of them got out of the flat today, she wanted to keep them in for a few days. Anyway Harvey has picked up the scent, and is very nervous, he refused to go out for a while until I went outside with him, what a wimp. He's now finally dared to go out by himself.
I need to go rest my back, think I may need to ask my GP for some stronger painkillers. I've been trying not to use anything stronger, but I fear I might just have to give in. This just isn't funny. Nor is the weather, where did spring go? Back tomorrow... take care
