When I woke up on Thursday it didn't take me long to realise that Something Was Up. The outside of my house was covered in lots of metal poles, and there were lots of strange piles of wood lying around. The Mog was looking a bit spooked too.

Just after breakfast things got even stranger when lots of people arrived and started rushing about doing things. They seemed nice enough, but I was a bit suspicious (particularly because the Mog suddenly vanished just before they all arrived), especially when they all dissapeared into the loft and started making loud hammering noises.

Fortunately, Dad explained what was going on before he had to rush off to work. One of the main beams in the roof is broken and needs to be replaced. To fix it, they have to take all the tiles off the roof, so Mum and Dad thought that if they were going to go to all the trouble to do that, they might as well put in another oom while they were at it. I'm hoping it might turn out to be a new bedroom for me.

After that, I decided that that the builders were alright. They hadn't finished by Friday, so I thought I'd better given them a bit of a hand to speed them up a bit. I'm good at bashing things with my hammer:

The builders didn't turn up on Saturday and Sunday, and we all had a lovely weekend. We went walked up the Garth on Saturday and I went to Church with Mum on Sunday. Dad says that the builders are going to be with us for another nine weeks or so. I think it's going to be quite fun, although I think The Mog will find it a bit hard.

Glad you are keeping up the family tradition of starting your DIY training at an early age. I'll send your dad a photo of him and Uncle Dave "helping" in the Leeds house - he might even put it on your blog!

(Just keep off the ladders on the roof - ask grandpa and Uncle Dave about that one)
Hi Will,
It seems you have decided on a career before you've reached your second birthday. Nice work! I still haven't worked mine out yet....perhaps you could act as a career's advisor between building projects?
