Glutton for Punishment

The builders were supposed to have finished yesterday. Of course they haven't. To be fair they were rained off. So now the scaffolding is due to come down on Friday. Bruce the builder and I were looking over the job last night and discussing what needed doing, the last few snags and whatnot... and it struck me that maybe it would be a good idea to repoint the east side wall. It had be previously decided that it wasn't in need of repointing, but now the rest of the house has been done it looks a little shabby in comparison. So when the scaffolding comes down on Friday, half of it will be re erected on the other side of the house. All this will be costing :-( but it'll tie the whole house together, leaving it will look like I ran out of money... which is dangerously near the truth.
