... but the sun is elipsed by the moo - oo - oo -oo - oon.

The roof on our outbuilding is finished at last, and it looks good.

While the roof was being reconstructed we took the opportunity of putting some roof windows in.

This is what it looked like as the old roof came off.

The timbers had decayed - and so had most of the tiles. One end of the roof had failed completely, leading to the collapse of one end wall. Now that has been rebuilt, and the building should be good for another hundred years.

The scaffolders came to remove their scaffolding today (hooray!), just as the clouds thinned enough for us to see the partial solar eclipse. The white cloud cover was too thick until about 1015, when I took this photo.

This is the best photo I got. At the maximum we were outside but could detect only that it had got quite gloomy, and possibly a touch cooler. Difficult to tell as there was a chilly north wind. (I did note some actual temperatures during the morning which seemed to indicate a drop of a degree or so.)

Jan took some photos on her telephone.
