We don’t need a Ramped access!!!!!!

Hurrah, Building control said we dont need to make a huge unsightly front door ramped access we can have an access via the barn!!!!  Building control also said he needs the commissionings for the heating, electrics and plumbing, he needs to see stairs with all the guard rails in and steps front and side appropriately guarded oh and all the building work finished off, e.g. all the boarding and skimming done!!  But yay no ramp no ramp no ramp!!!!

So last week James, His Parents and myself went down to B and Q in Carmarthen and got a set of steps for the patio doors!!!!

James and his Dad then proceeded to build the steps and some handrails for them!!!

They are Fabulous!!!!!!! And its so nice not to have a huge drop from the patio doors any more!!  Thank You Julia and Geoff!!!!

James and I have painted them, but unfortunately before it dried we had a sudden deluge of rain and its a bit mottled…. so we will have to take another photo once we have given them another coat!!

The reasons for my absence!!!

Well the reason I haven’t blogged for a month is that James and I got married!!! We have also spent a fortnight at the farm (a week pre the wedding and a week post thereabouts!!) so no interwebs access!!!!! The horror!!!! Anyway this means plenty to update on here…. Well in subsequent posts!!! For now here are a couple of wedding shots for those curious to see what we look like out of the overalls and chain saw helmets and visors!!! Lol!!

Little Miss Z and Mister Moo scrub up well too!!! A far cry from digging in the slurry pit over half term, although Mister Moo spent half the time trundling gravel around the courtyard!!

Views from the fields!

Last weekend we went to the smallholding again on a Friday after work and decided that the first thing we should do is walk the dogs to wear them out!! I took my camera and took a few shots of the fields!
