Gates - and doors

Having come back to Newcastle, looking at the pictures, I realise that we are now the proud owners of an incredible variety of doors and gates, in many vernacular styles.

Tomorrow I'll present an inventory, in the meantime, Elaine has uncovered the front gate to the garden:

uncovered for the first time in decades

nearly half way to the front door!

New Friends

We met our new neighbours across the road today. A more kindly and generous couple you could not hope to meet. We count ourselves very lucky to have been welcomed so readily and look forward to growing a long friendship with them.


We had a visit today from Helen and her family - to survey the wreckage and supply moral support!
