Yet again Clive had blood on the wrong side of his skin, he seems to be accident prone :)

I'm off to count my bruises :)

I'm pleased to hear you were both unscathed  :) Thank goodness you had steel toe caps cliveh ! It's a shame you can't claim danger money.

I escaped unscathed today LynL, but there was a close call.  Clive did offer to throw rocks at me in place of my brother who wasn't able to come along today :)

Clive I am not surprised you have a dent, there were some very large blocks falling out of that spoil!

I tried Lyn L but she kept moving!!!  :)

As a matter of fact when I got home and went to take my boots off I found a huge dent in the steel toecap of the right one! And I still can't think how it got there!!  :)

Glad you feeling better Merc.  We were lonely today!  There was only me, Cliveh and Fixit!

Clive and I started on the infill on the staircase and cleared the first three stairs.

Pic 1 is how it looked this morning.
Pic 2 is how it looked when we stopped for lunch
Pic 3 and 4 is how it looked when we stopped about 3pm

Sorry Kyn, won`t be able to make this weekend as I have promised my services to another restoration project!

Think Fort Borstal and me are to be 'ships in the night'.

Fort Borstal is privately owned and at the moment is a residence, so there is usually someone on site all of the time.  And when there isn't there are three rather large dogs waiting to greet visitors.  This is one site that is very safe :)
