It is lucky we dismantled the tree and brought everything in from the veranda yesterday. I think it would have all blown away overnight.
After the painter finished Doug's grandsons came around and helped him get the roof back on the cat run - just in time. Doug made sure it was well fixed on otherwise we would have lost it last night. (It had to be removed for the painter to paint the eaves.
Considering the wind the garden looks remarkably good. Some tomatoes have blown over and the courgettes have had a hammering. It is still blowing and a slight drizzle so we will wait until it calms down before doing a proper check and clearing things up.
This afternoon we both have Osteopath appointments - I think they will be the last with the lovely Camille as she and her partner are going back to France. She told me one problem her partner will have is his name - it is Laurence and French people always expect him to be female as it is a woman's name in France. Anyway, it will be sad to say farewell to her.
We must also start to clear out the back covered deck ready for the painter on Monday. At least from tomorrow for several days the forecast is for fine weather but that could change.
