Hopefully Weebly will permit me to show you the Middlesbrough photos tonight as yesterday it all seemed to go up the swanny. It's been a hectic day and waiting for VW to ring we had to make sure that one of us was on hand to answer the phone. I got the covers done for the N East DVD releases and have nearly completed the three DVDs and clips should be on the Youtube channel, the DVDs are already listed on the shop page. After this it was back to the drive way preparation work, I went to B&Q and picked up thje rest of the kit I needed and then repaired all the mortar, broken bricks , gaps etc and thus ready for a clean up tomorrow.
The biggest job turned out to be the easiest, this was the drain cover which had partially collapsed, I had to scoop out a lot of earth and rubble, the paving people had leveled it with some rando9m pieces of untreated wood which had rotted, they are off my Christmas card list, to think we actually recommended them to other people. I have an old block of sharpening stone which was the same depth as the gap, this was hammered into position on the corner which had given way and seems to be rock solid for now. The next job is to use the cement repair kit for cracks and eroded sections, all relatively small areas. The forecast for tomorrow is superb for Carlisle so I'll be filming the rest of the Cumbria bus DVD then trucks for the rest of the day at the northern exit to Stobarts etc.
Next week we have Mon, Tues and first part of Wednesday in South Wales assuming the weather is ok. We hope to cover the new Newport bus station, Cardiff, Bridgend, Neath, Swansea, Haverfordwest and Carmarthen.
