Apart from rebuilding the gardener’s cottage which adjoins the house, we are also having to take down the roof above the laundry room and rebuild it. This involved finding a new home for large colony of bees that lived in the roof space. Two huge boxes full of bees were taken away after many decades of residency by successive colonies.
This week, one of the men inadvertently went through the ceiling, scoring a direct hit onto my basket of freshly laundered towels which were waiting to be sorted, folded and put away.
