42/366: practically perfect patio

Having levelled the backyard, it was time for our first major task: the patio. Before a career change, my husband was a plumber. Being a tradesman is very useful for undertaking home handyman jobs. Today the pictures can help us re-live the project.

And what a great job he did! In this last photo, in the front corner, are our first two cats, Bubble and Squeak, whom we adopted from an animal shelter on Mother’s Day, 1985. Bubble is the very visible white cat, while grey tabby Squeak is cleverly camouflaged.       As you can see, a new patio is something fresh to explore.
