No Smoke Without Fire....

Perhaps within the week we will have smoke coming out of this chimney.  Smoke = heat....!!

How's this for a cooker?
We will be able to feed the whole family on this one....!!

Perhaps my favorite building operation (sic), plastering.

There are a couple of old doorways in the new bedroom, one into the old cottage and the other into the new kitchen. Both needing to be plastered.  It's one of those dark arts that I am in awe of and have stealthily avoided the job all my life until a small repair job at the old house. No way out of this one though, so one down and one half finished.  I am now a nervous wreck......

Squeaky and one of the Duckins

I had a walk though the orchard late this afternoon, and saw one of the Duckins hitching a ride on Foster Mum's back.
