Living in a shed!

Yesterday morning the canal was frozen and covered with light snow. Jumble and I enjoyed an early morning walk on the frosty ground.

Ian got busy with rubbing down the tunnel bands, although it was bright and sunny, it was very cold out there.  It doesn't seem to bother the sheep in the field in Pocket Park on the way up to the village.

While Ian concentrated on the tunnel bands, Justin got busy with the roller and put the first coat of blacking on.
With the forecast for snow we were moved into the shed to protect the paint and make those working out there a little less cold.

So now we're living in a shed, but it has meant that even when the snow started earlier Ian has put the undercoat on. It's taking a long time for the paint to 'go off' but hopefully it will be ok.
