I finally made a start on replacing the front stairs. Having ripped out the old single step I find I can now reposition the water pump slightly, which may make it a bit quieter.
With the old step out of the way I've now worked out the form that the new steps will take, but will go no further until I get a new workmate bench to do the cutting on.
This morning we're getting ready to go away for a few days to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. 4 days up in Alnwick, with a lunch booked at "The Tree House".
