... it is Monday isn't it? Hang on I'll check.........BRB.................Yep it's Monday! I have enough trouble remembering the day of the week as it is but when Joe is off then there ain't a hope in hell knowing one day from the next!
Michael started his new job today, he called in on his way home to check up on Joe and gave him instructions on what to do next. Michael's day went well although it did involve a lot of digging, he was excited about starting somewhere new but was not excited about the digging part, can't say I blame him.
At the end of today's labours the deck is looking like this, all of the joists hangers are done, they ain't coming away from the house anytime soon! All of the coach screws are in through the bearers and into every joist end...twice! Corner brackets done. Still more to go through the two bearers yet. And Z nails too, there's a lot of ironmongery going on. Once all that is done then he will do the noggins, which are the short lengths that go in between the joists to stop them twisting. Decking timber still to be finished on top, then we have to think about hand rails, th-e-en Joe will have to go sell his body on a street corner somewhere to pay for the concrete slab to go down at ground level!
In the garden today
Calla lilies in the most delicious colour
And that's me for today
