Gosh we need to get a bit warmer before too long. This cold damp weather is having an effect on my limbs. Nothing feels particularly comfortable when we’re very cold and very wet. It’s always worth checking out various maintenance jobs in these adverse conditoins, lest we come downstairs to find something ghastly has occured overniht. As I did pretty recently. I paddled down stairs towards the kettle and looking out to the garden, noticed immediately that my enourmous back fence had blown town. It was a dreadful sight – fence panels flipped all over the place. The fascia boards snapped and buckling had occured. I had to call the fencing contractors. Because of high demand, he couldn’t come out that day to inspect but the next. This was good. The actual fence now looks fab. I asked for the medium priced alternative to include 3 trellis panels too. The professionalism was excellent. A first class job all round.
