Our swallows are about to leave on their travels I think. Quite cute to see them all sat in a line trying to pluck up the courage to fly…

Plastering the ceiling (18Aug11)

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Dennis came this evening to plaster the ceiling. He thought there was a problem as the plasterboard was sucking a lot of water from the plaster but it turned out ok. I think part of the problem is that all the cooking and tumble drying we have been doing in that room has been absorbed by the slabs so they were damp in places. Hopefully should be ok elsewhere…
