Hill update

I thought seeing as it's Friday you might be interested in seeing an update on the hill. 

The steels for the shed have finally arrived, however this wasn't without incident. The artic delivering it got stuck on the way up the track, the driver was far from happy - luckily I wasn't there at the time.  I was there though when a nice local farmer came to the rescue and did a couple of trips up with his tractor and trailer.

The house is also progressing nicely, the timber frame is now up and the roof trusses are almost complete.  Next week the roofer is set to arrive as is the stone so hopefully the house will be ready for Christmas.
We have been over to Hexham mart today and bought some more sheep.  We got some 5 year olds and some gimmers so I think that will be it now, other than a couple of tups or rams depending on where you live.

Tups round here!

Are you getting a sheep dog too? or are they very well trained sheep? or can Paul run very fast?

hi Debbie,Really pleased to see the building is going well and the steel has come at last. I think it would be quite funny watching Paul running after the sheep, but i think a sheep dog would do a better job.x

That house is looking good - and, hopefully in for Christmas! You must be longing for the day you open the front door and walk in!
