Yet more scaffolding arrived today and has gone up at the rear of the house. Originally the part of the roof over our bedroom wasn’t going to be touched but now it is, as every slate is being replaced. How DS managed a 2.5 hour nap this afternoon I shall never know! What with the scaffolders outside & the builders knocking hell out of something above us, the noise was incredible! We also had a young brickie who turned up to do the prep before work starts on one of the gable ends next week; he man-handled 800 bricks and a large number of breeze blocks up the ladder, seemingly without any effort at all! He earned every penny of his pay today, I can tell you!
