Tidy up day with the Quinns coming tomorrow for a couple of days. Toby and I took time out for a riding lesson and a cappuccino (not simultaneously though) in the morning and I went for a very stiff run in the evening. Not stiff as in difficult but stiff as in "Ooooo me bones and joints...." Ginny came with me and danced around pretending to chase deer but did not actually go too far in case they were scary. No Lucy as she has had a limp for a day or so and needs to take it easy (er). Very nice guests in at present which makes life soooo much easier and nicer!!
The “Then” blog. For details see entry for March 7th 2009. In brief the restoration of Claonairigh House.
Monday 10th August (Garret)
Sunny 4 midges....all bit me!
Fitted mortise lock to front door, rendered porch outside, partly inside. Primed raw woodwork outside porch and porch door. A couple out walking popped in to chat a little, they used to play in it 12 years ago, he said it looked a lot better with new windows!! (they were worth the work). Pulled lathe and plaster off part of the hall and library to get at lintels. Measured for some lintels. Fee went home at 10am, walked Tess down to telephone at campsite, she chased some bunnies, I talked to a very lonely fee and Dad spoke to Mum. Dad is naming all the large trees, No, Not oak, beech, larch but Richard, Oliver, Raymond. Maybe he is working too hard or he needs more lemonade with his wine
