Now that we are ready to begin laying bricks, it was time to entice the 'family muscle'
aka Tim and Adam, together with partners Georgie and Justine, with a basket of
home made rolls to boost their energy levels.
It was the maiden voyage for our snazzy red cement mixer, and it looks as if Jonni's
being careful not to get it too wet!
There was much knowledgeable opnion offered on the correct consistency for our first batch of mortar.
It was unanimously decided that Jonni should lay the first brick.
(not too sure about that strange looking mortar!)
After we'd all laid one brick, we left it to Tim and Adam to show off their skills.
They look understandably a little concerned about the distance between their bricks and the stringline.
But in the end our first four rows were completed.
We'd promised drinks after the completed four rows, but I don't think iced tea was
what Tim had been expecting!
