We got all the branches off the tree on Sunday afternoon, what made it harder was the fact that the trunk has split into three quite low down and getting just one of those down was a task in itself. It must have been funny to watch us pulling the rope tied to the top, then me climbing up the other trunk and trying to kick the other one down. We got there in the end and we've just got the biggest trunk left to tackle another day.
Last week after we had the fruity cloud all day, Debbie took some more photos at dusk....
With all the commotion going on outside on Sunday, Eric retired to his favourite spot for forty winks.
Toddy was just too nosey to hide inside so watched on from the relative safety of the flower bed.
Lucy managed to avoid all the falling branches and even found time for a spot of posing.
Lollypop thought all his birthdays had come at once, a lifetime supply of sticks!
It's going to be a mission to get all the branches chopped and bagged ready for the tip in the next couple of weeks but we'll get there, we really want everything nice and tidy before the snow comes!
