And Finally, Maybe, Possibly...

Friday afternoon bought with it the prospect of our final trip to our BAH to empty the very last of the bits ready for the sale.
The front steps on the porch were looking a little rusty and Paul wanted to take the angle grinder to them and re paint them with hammerite, thus giving them a more loved look for the new owners, when they decided to buy!

Off came the steps and Paul proceeded to remove any flaky paint with a sharp tool, before taking them up to the yard where he could make noise and not disturb the neighbours

meanwhile, it was a roasting 32 degrees and Fred and I were enjoying the sunshine.... I had worked hard this morning filling the car and trailer with crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, and pretty much all of the final important bits we could now use in the tourer

Paul was quite disappointed at how bad the metal on the steps had deteriorated, but cracked on with the clean up anyway

soon enough, they were all cleaned up and placed back on the van, looking very smart with their new coat of paint.
A grand job done well. Now it's time for a nice bit of grub at the local hostelry! Well I have packed the plates and cutlery!

    Good excuse not to cook, wise move packing the plates and cutlery.

    Your static looks gorgeous, hope it sells soon.
