Meanwhile the back garden is thriving on all this and the grass is nearly waist high! And according to the longer term forecast, there's absolutely no chance of getting it cut for most of next week.
I am so glad I got the old shed demolished and burned on a bonfire when I did. I had a sense of it being a race against the weather, but little did I know that if I'd missed that chance, it would be weeks before it was dry enough again.
