Llechi

Dave the builder came today and taught me how to slate the roof!

It was a lovely sunny day and I am hot and sweaty and covered in slate dust so I've rewarded myself with a lovely supper of fresh courgettes from the garden, Halloumi from the goat farm up the lane, and some of the lovely rhubarb wine Paul helped me make! Yum!

You are slating the roof yourself, that is very brave. I don't like heights and even get worried on the step ladder picking apples!

Dinner looks great, I never did get any courgettes this summer but theres always next year.

Step ladders are a different thing altogether! The roof is quite solid and sturdy and doesn't move about the way a ladder does. I don't like getting on and off it, but once I am up there, I'm totally fine...

We have only had something like four courgettes this year, so compared to last year that's practically none!

Excellent. Real slate, eh? Does that take a lot of maintenance?

Nope, no maintenance really once it's up there. If a slate breaks or slips you have to fix/replace it, but that doesn't happen that often. And that's it!
