There are two kinds of friends: Those who are around when you need them and those who are around when they need you. Thankfully I have a few of the first type the ones who are around when they are needed and will spend a whole day grafting to help out, thanks again Keith and Micháel who did a power of work clearing trees yesterday.
The insurance assessor was around earlier and he seemed happy enough with the claim although he said the house and contents should be insured for more than we have it down for. I have to get a quote from someone to rebuild the wall that was demolished by the falling trees on the North side of the house as well. Jessy escaped this morning and the builders ran her home after she was spotted away down at the crossroads in the traffic, she is in Coventry as we speak after getting a severe reprimand. Its very difficult looking after them when I am housebound.
Its a bonny day again today and the builders have started replacing the damaged bits, the weather is meant to change again to showers but no high winds in the next few days.
