First of all, my sincere apologies for the delay in blogs. We have had problems logging on to our own web pages since our server was hacked a few months ago, and this last week have lost not only the ability to log onto our pages, but also have been unable to receive Penaeldroch emails. We hope to resolve both matters soon, but please bear with us while we try to resolve these difficulties.
I will keep things brief to avoid overwhelming you with three normal blog-posts of details. Since last I blogged, the cafe has become a lot busier, so we have spent more time in the cafe and thus have less time to spend destroying the place. Having said that, we have still managed to:
make our first batches of nectarine jam
take out the electrics and then stud walls on floor 3, and also removed plasterboard and insulation
and then dropped the junk from a floor 2 window into the waste bin (action shot below)
Do some planting up inc plants from Kath
finish painting the window on floor 3, then dismantle the tower
we have thinned a stand of larches back to one tree
been to the riverside and marked plants to be pollarded later in the year.
lit the bonfire, to try to clear the space for planting, but then covered it with the larch trimmings
Entertained our nephew and his friend
Today was our second busy day in a row, and Jane now on holiday. so taking our leave to ensure we have the energy for the next couple of weeks without our chef.
