What to do on a freezing cold Sunday ?

I know !
lets go and stand in a freezing cold workshop
and remove some calf pens.
I know Marion Loves Me, because she just said OK.
I'm leaving this section in for two reasons
first to keep the feel of the original use of the room
and secondly to keep the workshop separate from the showroom area.

So with Marion's help we set about clearing the space,
it's going to be a long job, doing bits as we can find the time.
And the work that is covered by the Planning consent
has to be agreed in advance with the planners giving 21 days notice.
But the National Trust are getting contractors in to do that bit.
So my first Pottery lesson due to start on the 9th February
may well have to be in the existing workshop, until all the other work is done.
Still, we made a start and I feel better for it and warmer.

Nice new space--and a nice helper on a cold winter's day.

The space is going to be wonderful! and I love the idea of keeping some of the pens in tact.
Good luck with the building and keeping warm.
