This weekend, we had another mammoth go at getting some jobs done on the shed. The shed has been badly in need of a new door, with an old kitchen door bravely holding up to the worst of the weather but sadly failing. Dad had taken some measurements the last time he was here, and hunted through his wood stash to see if there was enough bits of this and that to put a new one together. Luckily there was, and the new creation was brought down to be fitted.

Elsewhere, we were able to do some much needed maintenance around the garden. fence panels had come down during the dreadful storms over Christmas, so it was a relief to get some sturdy new replacements up and secure before the next round. Also, it's never too late to get some spring bulbs in, so a lot of late flowering daffodils were planted, filling a corner of the garden with some much needed colour.
Back on the drawing board, progress is coming along on 'The Green Belt', although the Dog Rose is taking a little longer than expected and there is still the bramble to go. With my SBA submission forms arriving this week, it's all getting very real, and soon.
