Rain, rain and more rain – oh, and some wind, fog and frost. Sounds like a typical British winter then. It seems as though the rain has hardly paused for thought this week. Everyday has seen a little bit of rain or at the very least icy winds and I chose this week to make a start on the gazebo – bad idea.
Of course I have only been able to get out and do the work on the the weekend and a couple of sneaky afternoons, so I haven't made much headway. However according to Claire I have made quite a lot of mess. I have been digging out the footings for the base which, given the state of our soil, has meant slicing through thick clay which has the consistency of playdough and soaks up all the water.
