Hail smiling morn…

Day four and we are all still digging! A cold day for May, with showers and hail, so we did a lot of cleaning up our loose and running for shelter. Even with this yo-yo day we have managed to dig out a lot more of the site. A bright point in the day came when we added up our afternoon tea fund, it’s now £2.31! so we ordered the chocolate cake for tomorrow 🙂

Today it was the boys in the west versus the girls in the east, the boys clearing rubble, the girls in what we thought was rubble and finds free sandy loam.

Millie and Kathleen finished the room clearing and then tackled the fireplace, as you can see in the picture the remains of the last fire was still in the grate!

Millie and Kathleen - a job well done!

Now back to the sandy loam the girls were digging, first they came across more ironwork and then we had confirmation that we had a World War II dump when four spent (thankfully!) machine gun shells popped out!
