Oh bless thank you so much I/we are learning all the time, but I am really enjoying doing the work and get great satisfaction knowing I did it myself or we did it ourselves.  Today we stacked another 5cubic of wood we know how to do that now,  My first attempt went very well until I got to the third line they the whole lot fell down so had to do it again and again it fell down I went by the ytube video leaving the ends freestanding but it did no work so we both empted the woodshed and started again letting the wood lean and it worked so we stacked 10 cubic mts later in the day our neighbours came to help.

We also learned how to cut and turn a tyre into a planter when it's painted and planted I will post a picture. I have many little project on the go, naturally driving poor Dougie mad but this is me wow I need to be busy all the time.  Now the orphanages do not need us any more I must fill my time with something g

We are back working in the garden again, Dougie has made and fitted most of the flynets now inlcuding the gable ends should finished off tomorrow then will take photo.

They tyre has also been cut and planted with a rose so will take photo of that too. Did more weedkilling spraying today so thankfully this is under control. When nets are finished than we really must start cementing on the path. Hopefully all the rain has gone far away now and we will continue to have sunshine. The garden is muddy at the minute it appears Silistra had rain all the time we were away a whole 6 days and it rained Sat and Sunday too.

Well we are truly impressed with our gazebo Dougie made and fitted all the nets just need to sort the opening nets for enterence than it will be totally finished until we make the blinds for winter.

Here are a few pictures of the nets, the bottles has been started and the tyre, boy cutting and turning that tyre inside our was a nightmare Dougie used a knife but will used the jigsaw on the next one. He turned it inside out using clamps, works well.

Well I just could not get the large bottle right think it was the colours so I stripped it and started again and this is how it looks now.  Am happy with this one, just have to decide the ribbon or the beads.

Well the Gazebo is all finished now. All the nets, flowers, deocration, table and chairs bench and the electricty and lights connected just got to get piping to secure the wire underground. Dougie has also taken Bills advice and started to put the guttering up today so no more splattering. We are very very pleased with it.

Next the path we will start that on Sat when we get more cement delivered

Well that is all the guttering on now and we have a big plastic barrel to catch the water so we can water the plants with it - what a great idea La We were going to do the path leading to it, it is prepared even the metal is down just need to mix the concrete, but we started pulling the fence down and cemented in some poles ready to hang the wire, Our neighbours Dotcho and Yvanka came down and they said they would come at 9am in the morning to help us string the wire so that is good news. We will do the first 30mts as that is all the wire we have for now so you never know might even get the path started the weekend....
