|An early start sees breakfast all over and done with by the time that family start to arrive to help with replacing the conservatory roof. The rest of the day consists of pulling the old plastic covers off the roof and replacing them with the new sheets and rubber seals.
Uncle Jim is really pleased with the progress and, amazingly, the sun shines the entire time. The job is finished by 3:30 in the afternoon and we are all sitting down to a drink by 4pm.
Shortly after that the rains starts, and it is a good downpour. A good test for the new roof and seals. A small leak in one small area, but that should seal itself as the painted on pitch seal heats and dries.
Tea is pie and chips. Mrs Marple and NCIS takes us through to bedtime. After a full on day sleep happens quite quickly.
