Meanwhile ......

Meanwhile ......
Meanwhile .... whilst I've been pottering in the house showing you our book collection, outside the area around the house has undergone something of a transformation.
The front has resembled a car park for trucks of every description.
Meanwhile ......
I managed with a bit of jiggery pokery to squeeze my little car out of a gap made slightly wider with Lovely Hubby's manful directions when I needed to go out.
Meanwhile ......
More trucks arrived and unloaded ....
Meanwhile ......
... with lots of 'WHOAS' 'STOP's and 'WATCH OUTS' from the workmen when this one narrowly missed hitting the house, before he came to a halt and tipped up his trailer to start off loading tarmacadam.
And now around the house looks like this.
Meanwhile ......
Much better, it just needs a good rain to clear off the mud, and guess what we haven't had rain for weeks, it's been forecast for this weekend, so although I'm happy at the thought, Lovely Hubby is not so much so .... he's back to working on polytunnel construction.
Meanwhile ......
This old tram bench will eventually be repainted and is our choice of seat for admiring the view with our cups of coffee at break times when we're outdoors working.  Neatly under the overhang in case of rain :-)
Meanwhile ......
The back is where we intend to site one of the old Belfast sinks, to use as a mucky dog outdoors bathing area.
Meanwhile ......
And the front now looks nice and neat.
Once the polytunnel is finished the tyres will move over there and be planted up ... you know how much I love growing in tyres :-)
Now the patio area is all done it's time to move on to the next stage.
Meanwhile ......
And measurements and plans are already drawn up.  This guy is doing the final measurements for the splay at the end of the drive which will make pulling out so much safer for us and everyone that calls here.
Meanwhile ......
All planning permissions have been granted and the Welsh Government which was involved because we exit straight out onto an A road, is finally happy with the plans and what will be the execution of them.
Once this has been done it will be onto the next stage .....will it ever end!!
I hope so  :-)
