There’s still plenty of work to do in the rear garden but at least the paved area is complete. Here are three pictures showing the progress made over the past few days. Please note the presence of our chickens, now spending their last week chez Cole before heading off to a new life at a colleague’s place. We’re keeping our favourite bird, a little bantam we call Duck, and will soon (maybe tomorrow) buy a friend to keep it company. The chickens have been great fun and have produced literally hundreds of eggs for the table; it’s time for a change though.
