20th-23rd May 2015
Just as everything was going along rather well, we had a random moment and decided to complicate matters a bit. Sitting down the end of the garden one evening, glass of wine in hand, I said something to Ju along the lines of “You know, what that needs is a circular patio with a gazebo over it”.
Within a few days, we had commenced this Grand Diversion and before we knew it we’d laid a patio. Meanwhile, Ju had started to stain the wood that would be used in the construction of the gazebo. This wood was that which had been stored at the side of the house wrapped in plastic since the previous Summer, as well as some of the wood we’d bought for the studio.
