Disappointingly we did not get out to do the shed and lay the base because of the weather. We have the powdered cement base that you put down and then lay the slabs on top and it then sets itself.
Despite indications to the contrary it just did not brighten up and there was a proper mizzle in the air. So we stayed in and pottered.
Evenutally OH did manage to get the slabs into the garden - so everything is to hand ready for us to get stuck in when we can. Bit disappointed that we have not got further but hey ho these things are sent to try us.
We have however had a very nice tea tonight. I prepared the roast beef by placing it on a sliced raw onion in the bottom of a roasting pan and then popped a foil lid over the tray and cooked it on Gas mark 4 checked it halfway through and took the foil off and there was a lovely natural gravy in the bottom of the pan which formed the base of the gravy for our meal with the addition of some other bits and bobs. I served it with shredded cabbage, mixed broccoli, cauli and carrot, mashed potato and peas and lots of gravy. I must say it was very tasty and went down very well. No Yorkie Puds or roasties for a change. I am now as they say stuffed!
Its cold and damp out but at least it is warm in the house.
Right must get on and get ready for work tomorrow.
Catch you soon.
