sit at the bottom of the garden....enjoy the view and
talk on the telephone for hours if necessary. Eventually go back and peer into the holes. Eventually go home and hope that by the the following day most if not all of the water will have drained away which it's meant to do in less than 7 hours - less than 100 secs per 1 mm drop or something like that
The following day..!

Passing by the Mansion House (1767) with its magnificent 19th century rubble walled garden and 20th century glass house and aviary the road winds along an avenue of beech and sweet chestnut above the river and continues through tranquil woodlands"
They were so kind and helped us load up the trailer with shed. It took two trips of 36 miles each, (they don't do deliveries) but we got a shed and a half
Home again, reversing into the garden - whoops
Down to work, well someone has to
"Why don't you come up and see me sometime?" Some of us just messed about
The base. We dug up some old boots and some bags of cement. Our garden has been used as a general dumping ground. I've found an off licence worth of empty whisky bottles! I suppose in isolated country areas without council rubbish tips nearby it was/is the norm ?
Half a shed
It looks easy, but it weighed a ton and was difficult lifting the sides into place
About here we realised ladders would have been helpful, but eventually with the help of a Murdo, a kind neighbour who came by on his tractor and shoved the roof into place almost single handedly we got it finished - apart from the roof felting. It felt hugely satisfying to have worked on our little bit of Letters and who knows if the house doesn't come along, the shed has lots of potential!

I ran out in my pjamas with the camera, the pictures here are without any digital tweaking I've posted them straight onto the computer. Just beautiful
