This is the barn at the start of the weekend. Before I could get on with cleaning the last few things had to be taken out and stored elsewhere.
I trundled 18 bags of lime mortar up to the Tractor barn.
I was nearly through when I discovered that the sacks weighed 25kgs when I had thought that they were 15kg’s. A 15kg bag is what we buy our dog food in and isn’t too heavy. I had been thinking that the mortar bags were heavy but had thought that it was just because they weren’t as loosely filled as a bag of dog food. Had I realised that they were 10kgs heavier I would have waited for mum to help. However I was so nearly done by the time I discovered it that – to her relief – I just carried on!
They have been stored on top of several bags of cement…. Set cement so I was pleased I wasn’t moving those!
So now the Tractor barn – so called because the tractor used to live in it, just as well it doesn’t need to now!
– as it is full of things that we don’t quite know what to do with or else we do know but haven’t done it yet.
It was a really fabulous day and I stopped trundling sacks about for a moment to take these pictures, still snow on the tops but you can see just how clear and sunny it has been these last few days.
It really doesn’t always rain in Argyll!
And then finally, taking a well earned tea break on the poshest garden chairs I’ve ever sat in!
