the best laid plans!

Today I had hoped all the stencils would finally be sprayed….then I woke this morning to the sound of rain….

We had a lovely day on the first day of the project on Monday! followed by a  wash out on Tuesday. Yesterday we got got some stencilling done with the green spray which was fun there are now frogs, dog prints, bear prints and footprints!

I had hoped to go back yesterday evening but life got in the way, a dentist appointment late afternoon (a huge filling) and an invite for a meal ( not to be turned down!)

Here are photos from our first day…many thanks to Lorraine, Juliet, Angela and Kirsty for helping out.

It was really busy with car after car entering through the gates, here is a nice considerate driver trying to avoid the stencils!
