It was a momentous day. Dave started on the final pillar and I filled up the gap - so at last we've laid bricks the entire length of the wall. It was another beautifully hot and sunny day - just the weather we had hoped for last year and didn't get but, although we're out in full sun for two or three hours, we haven't had any problem with headaches or sunburn. Of course we slap on the sun cream and drink plenty of water.
We had cleared away all the pots and weeds and general *stuff* from both sides yesterday, so we had a clear run. We both worked kneeling down, so there were some twinges of pain, especially for Dave, whose back doesn't really like to be bent over, but at least it gets better as you build up.
This afternoon, I'm putting my feet up for a bit with the papers. I've a stern letter to write later, but suspect I'll write the vitriolic version first and then calm it down to a more measured one. More effective, usually, even if it doesn't quite relieve the feelings so much.
