IF I HAD A HAD A HAMMER...

I do have a hammer and I have been hammering in the morning, lunchtime, afternoon and evening, and look what I have done...
Me and my Hammer!

 It has been a very exciting week, my hands are a bit sore but I haven't got any splinters, which is amazing if you think about all the wood.

 We fixed the wood on by hammering at one end then straightening and then hammer at the other end.  To stop it curving or bowing as Dad says we then put nail in the middle of the wood.  We started at the bottom of the door side and very quickly it started to come together. We have used loads of nails and it is quite tricky to get them in straight.


Bertie has been making something for me - I think it is a door stop, but he says wait and see.



I have now finished the door and window walls and am very pleased and it already feel like my space inside.  The walls have made a colossal impact!

My new home

I am going to have a look at making curtains today, mum has a bag of nice material and I have chosen some with blue and red checks.  I measured the window and have made a plan for both windows but I will only make one at a time.

Red and Blue curtains held on with golden rings for the main window- I hope to get some at the auction.
When I go to the auction next Monday and am hoping to get things for the treehouse, fingers crossed.  I'm off now, maybe I will do curtains tomorrow, its really sunny and mum is getting the water slide out - woohoooooooo

Be back soon - THG

Wibble Wobble

Not the treehouse...a jelly. We made out of the damsons from the tree that is getting in my way.  Revenge! 

Had a great weekend got lots done.  My cousins came on Saturday and we played in the treehouse, they loved it.
We played mums and dads and even though I might be a bit too old it was really good and just the kind of thing I wanted to do in the treehouse. 

Later on Saturday Dad started a waterfight when he was meant to be watering his plants. 

We all had a go. It is one of my favourite things to do and Ruby and Grace loved it too. 


When Grace got cold Dad took her in and she had a hot bubbly bath. 

 On Sunday our friend Robert came, then something really exciting happened, his dad gave me some wood for the wall from the house they are building next door.
Me and my wood
  Nothing will stop me now.  I am so happy,  he wants some of our Apple and Blackberry jam in return for the wood. So Dad, Bert, Connie and I went to pick the berries after tea tonight and will help mum make it with her secret recipe tomorrow. I love making jam...and eating it!

This is my favourite picture from my weekend
Be back soon THG
