The end of the rainbow

After four days of chugging with the pressure cleaner, stopping to let it rest, or to dismantle jammed whirly bits, I am none the wiser as to why it works perfectly for just an hour or two after I've dismantled it before finding an excuse to jam something within just one more time.

Despite now being intimately familiar with its innards, I am yet to discover a logical reason for its intermittent malaise, but even with all the stutters along the way we are finished. Every horizontal surface outside has been cleaned to within an inch of its life.

Decks, driveways and the tops of fence posts are now officially devoid of fungus and may feel free to start growing it again. We are ready to hit the road!

Amazingly it's almost two weeks since we departed London. We are not quite settled into home although the list of things to do has diminished remarkably, the cars are serviced, bike tyres pumped up, workshop ready for the next project.

We are almost ready to start new projects once again. After living in a fine mist of water and splatter for a few days it seemed entirely appropriate to end the afternoon sitting on the steps with jobs done beneath a perfect rainbow enveloping our house.

They know you like to tinker so are keeping you happy. Don't know if I've mentioned this before, visiting your blog is much more pleasant for me since you took to public service announcement ads.
