Repairs After The Wind
Firstly thanks for all comments yesterday regarding my Curry's PC World experience, I have done a bit of research on web about this issue before I send them a strong worded e-mail of complaint and came across this from Which report on Curry's
Today was bright and sunny with a hard frost, this meant I could get the repairs done after the wind the other night.
First up was the shed, one of the flimsy perspex windows that came with the shed was shattered,
I was unable to get any perspex when I went into town yesterday, I took the measurements and decided to put a sheet of wood in it as a temporary measure.
I used this power saw of hubby's that I came across in the barn
It was fairly easy to use once I found out how to work the safety switch.
Next up was the greenhouse
Three panes of glass had blown out but only one had broken
I found some polycarbonate in the barn and cut it down to fit
I also used silicon to give some extra hold and put the insulation all back in place,
everything was fine in the greenhouse nothing has suffered from the cold as the insulation had fallen onto the plants giving them some protection.
While I was outside I decided to close in the post and rail fencing running along the bee hives, Kara tends to wander through there and then goes into the Alpaca field
Its a plastic netting, and not really visible from a distance
When I was in town yesterday I popped into Charlies and bought this
Its a Kilner jar that holds 5lt and as a lovely tap on it, they were on special offer for £11.99.
don't know what will go in it yet suggestions on a postcard :-)
