    Adele 30

    So talented to be able to write her own songs I know she comes across as as a bit depressive as most of her songs are about heartbreak and relationships But that’s her life and she is living it out on stage she has such a lovely tone to her voice no screeching and wailing like most young singers are today I get the marmite bit you either like her or don’t I am one that likes her
  6. I used a mix 4 parts soft sand 1 cement For laying the slabs I used 4 parts sharp sand 1 part cement with a dash of adative in it
  7. all done now and i love it it took 2 tons of sand 15 bags cement 36 sq metres of slabs and 10 bull nosed slabs in total it cost about £1500 its now much more modern and i am well pleased with it
  8. the next bit was what do do with the garden under the patio i decided to go over the old concrete railway sleepers that i had down in the same stone and make a small rockery garden so the mrs can plant some alpines a little banksy on the wall to brighten everyone up all done !!!!!! so i thought after running the hose on it i had cocked up a bit and water was running towards the house so i had to angle grind and chisle out to put a drain near the house
  9. its gradually getting there nearly there and i am pleased so far as i am a not a craftsmen and just like a bit of diy and i think its all going well so far
  10. i started at the top step laying the bull nosed first and laying the others behind leaving a couple of inces between the step and the house so the rain can run down the back into the driveway and not against the house i also cladded the step under the slabs to create a nice look cutting out the 2 air bricks and fitting them then came the fun part of laying the proper patio
  11. the 36 sq mtrs of slabs arrived with 10 bull nosed slabs for the top step and the bottom ones i took off all the top step hexagon slabs as i didnt want it to high near the door and took out all the loose ones on the patio
  12. so down came the wall and i decided to make it a bit bigger with 2 steps inside so next step was doing a little footings for the wall followed by the other side and started to make a wall then filled both walls with rubble ready to concrete over it
