|Steps - before|
Next up was the "patio" area - once cleaned I can move the garden table back outside ready for this tropical weather that we are always promised but never seem to have. With a lot of water and gunge to clear I did an initial sweep, left it to soak away and then brushed it with a stiff brush - I will go over it again of course.
Finally I made a start on the conservatory which was fast becoming covered in a slimy green coating - woosh, one sweep and it had gone. I forsee hours of fun!
The second property was much more expensive that the first and would not allow for many improvements to be made initially. Sadly I think that the strong aroma of cigarette smoke did not help its cause!
I must admit, however, to booking a little treat today! Wendy and I missed a Lynette Anderson workshop last year when Lynette was too poorly to come over. However she is doing a couple of one day workshops about an hour away from my summer holiday location and the day before the holiday is due to start! It would seem a crime not to book a place! Sadly Wendy can't come with me but I am sure that there will be a treat to take back for her. I just hope that the places haven't all been taken!
