After... (2) (Thursday 11th March 2021)
Diary blip. The scaffolding came down this morning revealing the new roof and skylights. There are still a couple of jobs to do which rain prevented today, including replacing the fascia on the bathroom (on the left) and along the conservatory and porch. The white spots you can see on the roof are plum blossom blown across the garden by the winds.
I haven't decided yet whether to plasterboard in the porch, but I do have a quote for the job.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Marvin Gaye & Kim Weston - Till There Was You (recorded by 21 September 1964, Hitsville Studio A, Detroit MI)
Barbara Cook was the first person to sing this, in the 1957 Broadway cast of The Music Man, and it soon became a hit for Peggy Lee. Paul McCartney performed it live with the Beatles in Hamburg for several years before recording it for With The Beatles in 1963. The Beatles also taped versions of it for the BBC Light Programme on several occasions.
This version was originally intended as a duet between Marvin Gaye and Mary Wells but when she suddenly left the label in 1964, Kim Weston was brought in to dub in her vocal onto the existing recording, and it appeared on their album It Takes Two - which I have been playing today.
