Drive & Ambition...Some Have Some Haven't !!

 
 
Sometimes in life, you need a bit of drive and ambition !!  This was the task that we have been concentrating on.  It has taken approx 25 ton of gravel and we have been very busy this week.  The first load of gravel was delivered on Wednesday last week and we are now finished....


Ruby has worked well this week it was her job to spread the gravel, this is the first load ready to be spread.... we have managed to gravel round the porch, all the steps to the garden are now finished off and we have edged around the garden room and I now have a very nice gravel path....

 
The steps leading up to the garden, two done one to go !
 



This is the start of the pathway around the garden room.... being prepared.  I have laid some weed resistant membrane around the steps, path and porch to help stop the weeds from coming up.

 
Getting there... this is the first load, just waiting for the rain to come and wash it in.... funny how when you are waiting for rain...it never comes, we have had a lovely sunny week.  Which is just as well, as the place was a bit of a mess at first.

 
Tesco's home delivery !  taken to a new level.... well if you can't beat them ...join them !  We briefly had our wheel barrow stolen ....

 
The boys going out one lovely sunny morning earlier this week ....

 
Ruby and me .... spreading the second load !  Its all done now and I have managed to finish off the divides in my log store ... which will stop the logs falling down.  Oh that reminds me ... another job on the list...the log store is quite bare.....time to fill it up before the winter comes...
 
We are having a day off tomorrow.... its the calm before the storm..... we have another date with the vet and Dougal ........wish us luck !!
 
 
This job has been waiting to be done for years ... I think its safe to say ...this job is now well and truly crossed off the 'to do list'.

You and your parents have tons of drive and ambition! Congratulations on getting the gravel done. It looks great, and will make things so much nicer when the weather is bad.
Best of luck with Dougal - I remember the dart!

It's looking great Jayne. Are you going to run out of jobs eventually!! I doubt it as you always do such a fantastic job of anything you do.

As usual you put us all to shame with all that you manage to achieve! Well done! Lucky you having that sunshine, we've been having a particularly wet spell so having to work indoors, usually we see rain where you are whilst we're enjoying sunshine!!

That looks very posh - you'll be having a fountain next!
WISH we could be there to see 'The Dougal Episode'!!

Plenty of drive here too but we don't have a 'Ruby' to help - it's all done with the same type of supermarket trolley which your mum is pushing! Shirley & Robbie
