Also James and his dog Andy joined Hilary and Myself for a BBQ this afternoon

Its been a busy week this week as the cottage painting was completed, the gap between the garden wall and fence which has been filled with a pile of bricks since Hilary bought the place has been filled with feather edge board.
New gate made and fitted, had to choose a new colour treatment as the Ronseal treatment was not suitable for planed timber.

This weekend we were meant to go to Sue and Dave's but unfortunately Sue's mum was in hospital.
So as the weather was good it was decided to paint the walls of Hilary's cottage with the help of Ray and Sacha.
Although Dave and Sue joined us for some thing to eat on Saturday evening.

On my Birthday on Thursday we had planned for a BBQ but as the weather was not very promising it was a take away indoors at Claire and Darren's.


Wednesday night we had a get together as this may be the last chance before we go off on our summer cruise.
A great night in Prezzo's in Halstead.

Saturday the new solar panel was fitted to the boat, as the panel was too big to fit in our car so Ray came to the boat with it and with his and Peter's assistance it was fitted and charging.
Finding we had time to fit new rubber fenders to the side on Saturday meant we had time to take the dogs for a long walk on Sunday

Yesterday was a bitter sweet day, the bitter being it would have been Auntie Joyce's Birthday on Tuesday and Dad's yesterday and it was the anniversary of the death of Mum.
The sweet being we celebrated Poppy's third birthday and seeing the dogs discover a balloon in the garden until Cassie tried to pick it up.
