Today I did my first cementing… ever. I enjoyed an inordinate amount, and also the camaraderie with my fellow boiler-suited worker who has been busying himself today with scraping the flaky paint off the outside of next door’s house.
We’ve had intermittent showers, which almost rained off play once or twice, but I persisted as long as there was cement left to, well, cement. Worked for about 5 hours today, mixed up about 4 batches and filled all the major holes and re-pointed the end of the wall.
Not pretty, but just aiming for a rough surface all on one ‘level’ without any giant holes at this stage.
