Photo Scrapbook

Today we had three builders working outside finishing off the wall and sundry other tasks; three Everest workers indoors putting in six double-glazing windows (action sequence below). For a time we were huddled in the back bedroom, the only one unaffected by work: then we went to delightfully-Georgian Frome to shop at M&S.

This afternoon we walked down to Wells market square and sank pint after pint as Switzerland improbably socked it to Spain. However, by the end of the week it should all be done.

Adrian leaves tomorrow to visit relatives in Liverpool on the first leg of his trip to New Zealand and back on the snow. Clare is sorting his hair styling out below.

Part of our campaign to free up bookshelf space round the house, our first donation to the local library shown below. The library staff pounced upon them eagerly - we're obviously culturally well-matched: completely middlebrow.

Not a fantastic shot of the Tescos staff below, but every supermarket has abandoned its entrance floor display in favour of mountains of lager.

Next week we have the tarmacing to be completed, the cavity wall insulation to be be booked, the blinds to be measured up and the water pipes to be checked for lead. I think another three weeks and we're done but it should be quieter from now on.
