Two hands waving at me,
coming through the wall they were,
the wall which is the wall of the house,
which is supposed to be solid?
beyond this door in the kitchen is the next room to be done,
It is a dusty environment at the moment
but Builder Jim has got most of the old rendering off the walls now...
...... and the cupboard in its 'before' time
....and now in its 'halfway there' time
(the lintel is rotten by the way and comes out today)
.....only the old sink and shower area left to do,....
....and all was going well.
I was sat at my spinning wheel in the courtyard,
happily feeling zoned out in the sunshine,
when from behind me came a crashing down of something,
"You alright?" I called,
"Yeah" responded Builder Jim, cheerily.
Moments later and "Helloooooo", he called,
and round I turned,
and there he was,
only it was only his hands I saw,
the rest of him was the other side of the wall.
(you might have to enlarge the photo below for the full effect)
Just holes in the sink area of the wall where stones had fallen out,
and to bless the little birds who constantly chip away,
first at the rendering,
and then underneath the rendering to very 'glue' holding the stones in the wall together,
so that all falls down eventually,
Not to worry,
Our builder is fixing it.
We might have some more 'surprises' today as he starts removing rotten lintels from over the sink and cupboard areas.
We may, or may not, have some more stones tumbling down.
Not to worry,
the sun is shining,
there was no frost this morning so it is not quite so cold,
all the snow has gone,
and everything is drying up.
