I'm stone walling you08:00
I'm not sure if that title's funny or just weird, what do you think? Is it weird?
Anyway, a few of you have talked with me about my big stone wall out the back. So seeing as we're hoping to move soon I thought I'd better take some photos of it and tell you all about it. Who says that blogs have to just be about interesting things, right?
So...the wall. Each of the houses in our terrace has two rooms downstairs and three rooms upstairs in the main house. On the back of each house there is a newer extension with kitchen then bathroom. Yes, downstairs, away from the bedrooms, as far as you can get on a cold winter's night when you're desperate to go.
If you stand looking at our house from the front, the neighbours on the right extension forms our right boundary wall in the lower back garden.
Our extension forms the right boundary wall for our left side neighbours. Here's the view of 'the wall' from our dining room.
Those steps lead up to our main garden which is a super steep slope as it's set into the mountainside. The main garden patio is about level with the bottom of our house roof.
This is the view out of our kitchen window above the sink. When Dusband's doing his washing up, this is what he gets to see.
On the wall there is a rusty old iron hook. I don't know what it's for, I don't know why it was put there. I do know that it's a handy place to photograph bags when you need to hang them outside for a photo.
The ground is just plain concrete in this lower section and gets little to no sunshine at all. 1) it's north facing, 2) it's in Wales.
Above the dining room window there's a pulley thing, I assume that's for a clothes line.
Standing at the top of the steps up to the main garden this is the view to the right with our bathroom roof in the front of the picture and our two neighbour's the one side.
So there we go, a nice traditional Welsh stone wall. I challenge you to post a more interesting wall blog post....go on, I dare you :) Come back and let me have the link if you do!
