Blessing in disguise

I know it's a bit quiet on my blog. A lot of things to do. One of them is making a new fence. The old one came down during a storm a few weeks ago. Lucky us, because it was a cheap, ugly fence. We sat with our neighbours and discussed the new one. We wanted it half open, they preferred closed. They liked horizontals, we verticals etc. With some give and take we're now making a closed fence with vertical boards. Ours grey, theirs unpainted. Actually my dad is making the fence and I assist. I, the apprentice, drilled about 1400 holes and fitted half of them with screws. Quite some work and not finished yet. But I love working with my dad this way. And our backyard is looking so much better than before.
