The start of the week saw the arrival of Fred the racing pigeon.....gave him some bird food
still around on Tuesday & Weds, but making a pooey mess on the washroom doorstep...
so feeding was abandoned in an attempt to get him to go home
back on the building front...the plastering moves downstairs and ceilings and walls go in
just can't work out what Ryan is doing with the stick....
and the windowsills start going in
back upstairs, the large back wall is tackled with 3 working all togetherseveral mixes later
and in only 48 mins, the whole wall is there....and it's time for tea break
view from top of the tower......boards all the way across and Toddy downstairs bridging the gap
It's hot work & the bright blue t-shirts show up well against the plaster
insulation slides in above the battens in the washroom ceiling to give another layer
Jess and Matt visited for the bank holiday w.e. and we set them to work with paint rollers
Mike meanwhile is on scarily high ladders across the beams and towers...too high for me
painting the edges looks almost a bit too high.....
tea break time
we noticed that the tortoiseshell pupae that had been hanging on the front elevation had started to emerge....and below each one, were drops of blood....never thought that butterflies had blood....pupae case and emerged butterfly
and again - the drop of red blood beneath
