How to move a track vehicle over a little old Medieval Bridge ?
It's something that is done very carefully.
After weeks of having the company of the demolition crew next door.
Seems as if Frankie de tabby and Freya are going to have to find something else to nose at out of our kitchen window.
We know someone is really going to miss Josh.
We took Freya out to see them off over our little bridge. They've gone.
This is the finished result. One two hundred year old cob cottage that was next to Soggibottom has GONE.
The demolition crew have finished, but there is still work to do outside. We now have to wait for a new fence. The rubble of the cottage that's left is going to help build a new water course, hopefully it will also help with our flooding problem. Seems as if the dust hasn't settled yet. More photo's to follow over the next few months. There is so much more to do. It's going to take time. We would like to think we have the same guys to build the water course.
It's not been an easy job to take down the old cottage next door to us because the walls were so very close to Soggibottom.
The demolition crew have been very good. There has also been a fair amount of tea and coffee being passed over the wall. They have worked in the snow and cold and deserved every cup of tea and coffee even if they have at times made us hold our breath. They knew what they were doing.
One of the guys even gave us a very bespoke chopping board for our kitchen this morning.
It's Tim's hobby. One that we approve of. Thanks Tim, but no way can we use it. This is for show purposes only, it's too good to use. What a lovely thought.
It's definitely a different outlook around here.
Another view from a different part of the village. We will get used to it.
Update on my tomato plants.
They were lacking light over the last few weeks because of dull dark days and the fact that our window's were netted, the scaffolding around the cottage didn't help the light factor. They looked really sick. I moved them into our greenhouse thinking they would pick up. Then I brought them back in the kitchen. They were resting here while I took their photo. I turned my back, Frankie de tabby who was nosing out of the window decided to put his large paws on the tray and up turned them onto the floor. Hum... going to have to sow some new ones.
At least we have more light in the cottage now.
Afternoon tea at Soggibottom.
The postman called with a package this week, it's my belated Mother's Day gift from Karina.
Hannah, Mew and who is the waiter ?
Could it be Frank who in this photo has half of his fish dinner around his face?
Thanks for all your very positive comments over the last months guys.
We only ever have the very best visitors over this side of the bridge.
Freya Rose Blossom can be found as usual over at the Catflap Cavalier.
See you all soon. X X X
