I must just say a big thank you to Alf for leaving me a comment yesterday. He suggested we get a Erbauer multi cutter tool to help with the removal of the small partition. Ian took one look and said that's just what we need. So a trip to Screwfix this morning saw him return with the goods. Although Ian hasn't used it for the partition yet it's already come into it's own by cutting away the wooden struts holding the bath in place. Just goes to show that there are some very helpful readers out there.
Because Ian was going to carry on with the hammer drill to remove the rest of the tiles, I left him to cope with the noise and dust ( he had on face mask, ear plugs and ear defenders) and went for a walk. Not a time I usually go out and not one to do again. Not a soul about other then the odd cyclist and with the wind picking up as the afternoon progressed, I started to feel a little unnerved. Could be that it got dark early especially as the skies were already showing sign of the impending storm and it felt a bit oppressive. Anyway I was glad to get back even though Ian was still hammering away at the tiles but my earplugs helped to deaden the sound. Still heard the small branches dropping onto the roof, though, and the main storm is not due till tomorrow. 60mph according to the met office. Definitely time to batten down the hatches, bring in the coal and sit it out for the next few days.
|Slight tinge to the sky this morning. Ready for the forthcoming storm|
And seen today on my walk
