It's not brilliant..but it will suffice until I can afford something better. After the digging of the holes on Saturday, the man arrived on Sunday, which several children in tow, and put metal posts in the holes and filled with cement. Then he went away.
Yesterday afternoon he came and fixed the chicken wire to the poles...job done...well almost. (My friends...I'll call them L..the man, and A...the woman). L had a look and agreed with me that there were gaps around the bottom where Monty was already starting to dig his way out, and the chicken wire wasn't tight enough. So L tightened up the chicken wire as much as possible, whilst I put down some spare roof tiles and rocks around the inside of the perimeter in the hope that this would deter them from digging their way out.
The metal posts are very secure but at some point we may need to replace the chicken wire with something more substantial.
And I promise that from now on I will try not to mention the fence again!
The weather was glorious today...clear blue skies and sunshine. A little chilly but very pleasant. A welcome change from the recent gales and storms. The forecast is much of the same until Friday when we are due more rain. So L & A and I will make the most of it and go for long walks over the next few days. We will attempt to get M & M used to walks on leads with choke chains, so that I can manage this when my friends return home.
Today we are going to Milas market. We will leave M & M in their enclosed section of the garden..as a test really to see if they are able to escape. If they do...it will be back to the drawing board.
So it just remains for me to wish all my followers and blogger friends a Very Happy Christmas...I sincerely hope it's enjoyable for all of you.
