Lots of spare screed

The garage floor screeders arrived first thing this morning and were very efficient. By 10am they had finished and gone, and we now have a garage floor that we can park our car in. 


Actually not quite yet because it has to dry out first and then we have to build the driveway to get to the garage, but you get the idea. 
We had loads of spare screed which was what is called a dry mix. It was a very nice consistency, but we needed to use it all up. I started by filling in the foundation trench that I dug two days ago. 


Darren and I then worked together to build a new, and hopefully stronger platform for our water butts. It also used up some of the spare coping stones that were cluttering up the front garden. 


There was still some left so we dug more trenches at the other side of the house. This site was chosen because it was in the shade as it was very hot today in the sun. 
However, my lovely stork looked very happy standing in the sun all day, and he seems to be successfully stopping his relatives from eating our fish.
