It has been a pleasant stop here at Galgate, it fulfilled all our criteria for the weekend, ie Church, Pub for Sunday Lunch and shop for papers etc. It even has a bank wide enough to put out my chair in the sun...........what it did not provide was the sun so to do!!!!
I have been desperate to do a bit of touching up to the black sides of Petroc so I risked it this afternoon. I managed to almost finish just as the clouds loomed dark again and began to dump their load..........we have certainly had some heavy showers in the last few days, and some thunderstorms also.
We had had some minor trouble with small leaks in two of our windows but have just acquired some "Captain Tolleys Creeping Crack Cure". During a brief dry spell Geoff used this and , fingers crossed, it may have done the trick.
