Well it really is. So what happened to Summer, you know the bit between cold, wet, Winter and Spring and cold, wet, Autumn and Winter? Oh yes, of course, it was cold and wet then too.
Did the endless rain, wind (read gales) and leaden grey skies, stop work? No it did not, we purchased a wonderful 'pop' up gazebo that is 6m long by 3m wide, wide enough to cover the footings of an extension we are currently building, and long enough to be easy to move and dry to work under. It was a real life saver and the job is progressing very nicely, even if we arrived one morning in July to find the newly dug footings resembled a reservoir!
We still have the main roof of the house to do....praying now for an Indian summer...
