Holes, Holes and More Holes

Holes, Holes and More Holes
Once again we are visited by the little digger, but this time it's digging holes right outside the house.  Really convenient ..... and lovely and muddy.
It looks so innocent sat there in the sunshine, but every night we have had torrential rain and apart from filling the holes with water this makes the soil that this lovely little orange machine has dug up turn into a sea of mud that is slowly and determinedly covering our layer of slate chippings around the house. 
Which means that four human feet, sixteen little doggy feet, oh and not forgetting the four dainty little pussy cat feet are all walking it into the house.
Who was it that commented the other week that my kitchen floor looked amazingly white ..... yeah right ... not any more!!
Holes, Holes and More Holes
Hopefully, once they have been inspected by Building Control, the holes will be filled in with concrete, which will act as the base for the steel supports that are going in to support the new conservatory roof.  As the conservatory has minimal roof support on two of it's sides, it needs something substantial to hold up the proper slate roof that will match the house.
And did you spot something new lurking near the house too, yes we have had to buy a new oil tank as our current one is sat right where the bank of earth is to be dug out to make more space for the garage ... and it's developed a slight leak and killed all the plants we planted around it.
Holes, Holes and More Holes
Three holes done ....
Holes, Holes and More Holes
... and the fourth one should be done tomorrow, after the nice boiler man who is here at the moment currently syphoning all the oil from the old tank into the new one, has finished disconnecting the central heating and hot water boiler, which is handily right in the position the final hole needs to be dug.  
So mud, mud and more mud ....... and no hot water!!
It's a good job I haven't had the central heating switched on yet, at least we've not got used to that little luxury before it's temporarily taken away from us.  The boiler will be reattached once the work is done, in the meantime it will be showers for us and the muddy dogs, and water boiled in the kettle for washing the pots.
It's like one step forward and two steps back but at least hopefully in a few weeks time we will have a much cosier conservatory
