yesterday .. April 12th

31 years ago April 12th was a Monday - Easter Monday to be precise.
It was bright and sunny, a slightly cold wind, but nevertheless a lovely spring day. For mr digandweed and myself it was a very special day, for it was the day we were wed !
Fast forward to April 12th 2013  and we spent the day in a very different way.
Yesterday's event involved


 various tools - including this really useful bradawl which was my dad's.


pieces of wood.


assorted screws



and lots of drilling


Several hours later and here is the result -




our anniversary present to each other.

Ok, so you will notice that we ran out of time and our lovely new arbour has no roof!
That is a job for tomorrow, along with painting it and generally making it cosy with cushions etc.

Then it will be lovely place to sit and read, have a cup of tea or just take in the beauty of the plants in our garden.

There will be more photos!
