new found skill!

I can do plastering! We built this brick raised bed last year and have had to wait until good weather to finish it off. After long phone tutorials with my Dad and watching youtube videos I got stuck in! I fixed beading for neat edges and then mixed up a rendering mix of 1:1:5.5 cement:hydrated lime:builder's sand and slapped it on! Just look at that professional sausage shaped blob on my float! Really not that hard to do and lo and behold it was still stuck to the wall the following day!

Only half done so far. Will have to finish it later this week.
