The problem is not having too many books, but rather not having enough shelves. So now that we have a Wendy house, and have moved some of the stuff from the outside room into it, and put up some shelves in the outside room, we can think of putting up more shelves in the house and getting some of the piles of books off the floor.

We didn’t have any shelves in the dining room, so Val and Jethro added them/
Val and Jethro added new shelves, so we could put out some of our small books stored in boxes.

Back in the spring we took some photos of the thorn tree in the corner of our garden, all over yellow catkins. Now it is autumn, and the catkins have all turned into seedpods. We thought it might be interesting to take pictures at various times of the year to show the changing of the seasons, but then a couple of weeks ago we lost half of it, when some of the bigger branches broke off and fell down.
Fallen branches from our tree
So we had to get some people to cut up the fallen branches and take them away. They made pretty quick work of it with chain saws.
Workmen cutting up the fallen branches
Within a couple of hours the fallen branches had gone, and they trimmed a couple of others that looked a bit dangerous.
And now our tree reminds me a bit of Aslan, when he was shaved for the slaughter.
