It was hot so jobs in the shade were the order of the day.

Any tool that looked “a bit scrapy” was grabbed and Team GoodGym set time work on the wall we’d cleared of ivy, to make sure it’s ready for painting.

Huge roots were dug out to try to stop future ivy ingress and refreshing cordial was drunk. Bags of weeds were carried and barrowed to the top compound (Rich preferred carrying the wheelbarrow back). And a new profile pic photo shoot.

Good times!
