The Storm Before The Calm.

Why is it that when it's dry, the sun is shining, and you're ripe with anticipation, your bloody JCB man is always busy. However, when it's freezing cold, the ground is as hard as iron, and all you want to do is stay indoors by the fire, your bloody JCB man turns up. 

Anyway, my bloody JCB man has now arrived to cut the new drive-way up to the Séchoir, which will make life a lot simpler. He has strict instructions not to harm the beautiful Oak tree, and to leave things as TIDY as possible when finished..... We shall see!

I took the two above pictures yesterday evening.

And here he is today, hard at work. He's just promised me that everything will be fine.... They all say that; but in him, I have total confidence (ahem).

And this is the final result. We have, of course, to put down crushed stone, grass seed etc. But, I'm sure you'll agree; the boy done good!


  1. Looks good to does that mean it is a nice walk or a short drive to the new abode or work in progress?
    Still looks darn cold there.

  2. It's just off the track that leads to our house; about 30 metres away. Builders' lorries will now be able to get up to it.

  3. Do you realise what you have done? Owl is insisting now that he must have a JCB man. The staff quarters are cramped as it is.

    1. I'm shocked to hear that he doesn't have one. Tut tut.

  4. Looking good. Cro. Hope the weather warms up for you soon.

  5. Yes good job
    Ii could do with him to clear my pond
    Keep warm

  6. That's the trouble with JCBs - very difficult to get snowed in.

  8. Hey, welcome to Magnon Gulch!

  9. Why does he show up in such cold lousy weather, you ask? So you can enjoy that fire and glass of wine all that much more when the job is done. Looks terrific!

  10. It is always a relief when something gets done right.

  11. Play this for him the next time you see him Cro
