Replacing the rusty sections of the flue with stainless steel brings all the maintenance up to date and will be done once spring arrives. The do-up has involved many weeks and quite an upheaval. Decluttering and disposing of things was a drag... with little time lost in the process. Everything is in place now with cupboards and drawers neatly stacked. Knowing where things are is heaven.
New carpet and vinyl planks are proving to be practical and should not date. Lifting the ceramic tiles was an all-day messy job and completed steadfastly by a man of few words. He was amazing! Just wanted to get it over and done with!
Here's Kit looking rather pleased with himself and with good reason perhaps. He has two new cat friends. Possum strolls over from next door and they chase after one another. But recently, Kit has been sending her off back home. Maybe it's just a territorial thing or sharing leftovers scattered on the lawn is not to his liking Birds flocking in for their share is bad enough so chasing after them is to be expected. Possum may be treading on his paws with her shared interests and sending her packing is what any self-respecting cat would do.....
Mabel is his other not-so-little friend. Isn't she lovely? Like Possum she weighs a ton. Don't know what they're being fed... Certainly, they are very well looked after.
The nectarine has been sprayed twice already with Liquid Copper and the last spray will be after petal fall.
Kit with the cobweb on his head... so funny!
