I am surprised that there have been no comments – so far. I thought – whoar. All that beefcake all to yourself!! And they are going to fix the roofs too! And I was worried that the weather had broken down and that they would call off. And there they are – sunning themselves in your garden. How much work did they get done? Oh I am so excited. See you soon, Sandra
Hi Sandra – I think you and Dobby were leaving your comments at the same time!
They started on the gable end wall. To be fair – I did take this pictures when they were on lunch break and they didn’t stop for long. 🙂
Hi Karen, this is not at all what I expected from you title, LOL. Maybe three wonderful fall blooming plants, or wonderful new tools, or new lady gardening friends. But look at this! What did you do, make them a picnic? HA Did they do any WORK?
Hi Frances – So glad that you were amused … they did actually make a very good start, but not on the roof! (They brought their own picnic!)
I love the expression on the dog – he looks like he is asking – hey, who are these blokes and should I bark, take a nip, or just beg for food?
Hi Susan – thanks for visiting – I think the expression on my dog just makes the picture. He, of course is delighted that we have builders here – who eat FOOD – I expect that by the time the roof is finished he may have put on a bit of weight. The builders are his new best friends too! 🙂
We have builders in too and they are lovely. The experience has been pretty fraught but not because of them! Tea is helpful I find but just liking them is the best thing of all. Yours look as if they will deliver the goods.
You are so right – about just liking them – and I think – just let them get on with the job!
Thanks for visiting
My sister told me in Canada they dont come down off of the roof once on, only for lunch and end of day. It’s finished in no time at all, the roof tiles are about the size of one of your large pictures and they are delivered on to the roof for them straight from the lorries. It seems welsh slate is tiny when you compare them. Glad to see they have started, you wont want me around for tea now!!
Hi P. – Not only is the Welsh slate tiny – but because of the “diminishing roof slates” they are various sizes and have to be put up there rather like a jig saw puzzle – it all takes time.
PS – You can still come around for tea
Wot! No ‘wordless Wednesday’ I hope it was not a ‘workless Wednesday’ I trust that you have cracked the whip and kept them on their toes. According to the weather report you will have had some heavy showers Did it stop progress? Hope not. S
Hi Sandra – You beat me to it – Wordless Wednesday is up now. We did have heavy rain to-day and it did not stop the builders – no whip cracking was needed. I was working today – and got drenched!
