This post will be mostly photos, as I've had a busy week and need to try and crack on out in the garden and do some tidying up. We have had a busy two days with the carpenter here fixing the sash windows, which needed new sash cords. I also have a long pole with brass hook which opens and shuts the stair landing windows as they are too high up to do by hand. I feel like I'm back at school only this time I'VE got the window pole and not the teacher or her favourite pupil! No point in taking photos as they still look the same, only they open now! I have lots of caulking, rubbing-down and painting to do on wet autumn days . . .
