Last night, our neighbouring farmer made the most of the dry weather and cut the wheat harvest. The farmers work such long hours. They didn't finish until the early hours of this morning.
There was something rather creepy up in our loft......
Oh thank goodness....it's only Chris!
He was up there investigating some cables and how the bathroom ceiling is constructed in relation to loft floor.
It was a beautiful sunny day so we had lunch outside....cheese, sausage, homemade bread and chutneys.
I have a rose blooming on my 'Golden Showers'....
I dug over a patch of earth near our veggie patch and planted some of the small monardas that I thinned out the other day. Hopefully they will grow well here and will attract lots of bees and butterflies.

I've recommenced cleaning the wall in the living room. To do this I use a wire brush, a spray bottle of water, a pair of protective glasses, a step ladder and a dust sheet. These can all be left in situ so I can go and clean a stone when the mood takes me! You may remember we cleaned some of the stones a couple of years ago on the other side of this wall.
Chris did some more work in the bathroom, removing the rest of the false ceiling and the wood paneling on the rest of ceiling. He discovered three cables that were redundant and removed them. He also discovered that the boxed in corner was free standing now that the false ceiling had been removed!
In the early evening, our neighbouring farmer was back in the field baling the straw.
Lovely to have your company!
