spread about reasonably evenly and tidied up again, having tracked it in as much as poss ... she's a bit of lump in a relatively confined area..... then get it rolled down a bit and ready for a top off with the beam
that was until Clara wanted me to go play with her for an hour !!!!

so ...... a bit later ..... it got the roller for an hour and a half .....







apologies for some of the pic quality .... not been the brightest of days ...... and 'twas getting on ...

I think jake and the Thwaites are gonna get shifted out the way tomorrow; give me some more maneuvering space .... and a nice level stand for pulling a top with the beam .... few bits to 'trim' at the bank edge, for the drain first though

looking a hell of a lot better than it was, anyway .... and before anyone says .... why didn't I use me 7ft bucket .... it's full of buckets and buried amongst everything .... bad planning that !!!!

sod all achieved today ..... Clara-ed ..... yesterday however I did get a bit done .... not as much as I'd planned, due to a dead battery on't Thwaites .. new one time me thinks .... so got the long narrow bit filled .....



and rolled down .....





hopefully at some point tomorrow I'll get Jake an' his mate out the way, so I can spread the rest of that pile about to top off and flatten what's gone down reasonably well already ........ with me beam



after I've filled in the odd gap here and there and shifted the burning drum .... bloody leaves take some getting going ..... gonna need a new drum soon too ... t'ain't gonna last much longer

managed to get 'in the seat' by 12-ish and hauled the beam out, after I'd deposited a bit of stuff around the edges with the bucket to start with .....



Alex has used this a lot and says he finds it better on backwards, with out the roller, so thought i'd give it a try ....



he's right .... float it so the trailing edge is smoothing it out and the 'front' is just cutting .... great results ....



and still makes a great 'shovel' - face shovel style .... drop a beam-full and pull it through ... can place lines of material really accurately ....

Rough night, Saturday night , for no apparent reason ,,, body was not a happy bunny... so was lunchtime 'fore I'd 'sobered up' from the Tramadols .... and in no fit state to go chasing yon roller about the patch.
Alex has been in need of this for a while and now I'd had the base plate for it, thought 'twas an ideal time to finish it off .... now't too strenuous and a lil' job in the sun for an hour or so, whilst I reclaimed my head

set out the plate and holed it, before chucking the gallows on the bench .....



set up the end plate ....



stitched it on and tacked on the braces ...



before welding it all up ..



gave 'the man' a call, as I knew he wanted to get it off to the powder coaters .... soon as .....
on his roof rack an hour later ..... and in the powder coaters' before tea Sunday night

sorted.

Altered one of the hinges on Pam's gates ... as the damned posts have moved with all the bloody rain last weekend ... hopefully they won't be doing it again, having had a good soaking

Picked up me materials for the infill last Friday and was going to get some of it chopped up, but as it'd been dry and sunny all day, with a good breeze, yon grass all needed the chop and it was dry enough to get it done ..... 'least most of it was, so said gates had to wait ..... AGAIN!!

good job I did .... started to rain just as I was putting the ride on away ....

they did forecast an hours light rain at 5 tonight and it was bang on schedule
dry for the rest of the week though
Body dependent, it was either to be, gates Monday a.m. or a few hours on the roller .... or might even treat meself to a 4t ride on for the day, if the boys in the village's 1200 was sat in their yard .... or gates Monday and the 4 tonner today even ...... get it whacked down

Roller not available ... so had to be old faithful this morning ......
