I didn’t do anything and yet all these came from the Drey’s garden. Did I mention that I love having a garden?


Jubilee celebrations at The Drey

After the dust and grime of  re-wiring I feel that now is a good time for a brief Jubilee based interlude. Here’s what our “village” celebrations looked like:

One last check on the sweet peas before the village tea and cake

There was a historical walk around the village, followed by tea and cake on the green:

One resident brought an old photo of their house from when it was built.It felt a bit like being on antiques roadshow!

Sawing up wood

Sawing branches

It’s a saw.

Today I have been sawing things. I sawed up some bits of tree so they would fit in our green bin and I sawed up those big ol’ beams I showed you yesterday so that they will fit in the shed until we can dispose of them. Thank goodness that thought I went to a girls’ school, they saw fit to teach us how to use a saw properly. Oh, and my arms ache.

I aslo stopped off to look at bathroom tiles today. I’m trying to find flat (not bevelled) light grey metro tiles that don’t cost the earth. More on that one soon.
