We have a fence!

When we moved into our house we had this lovely little white picket fence. Unfortunately it was rotten and full of termites. It was also thoroughly incompetent at keeping in large dogs and small children. Soon after this picture was taken we pulled it down (including the part that fell on my toe *thanks mum*).

The Gas Man then devised a plan. He was going to create a masterpiece. A fence to rival all fences that dared be erected near ours. It was to be an artwork and a supreme security device. His inspiration came from pictures like the one below.

So 5 years and 4 months ago he set about building 'The Fence.' And today, finally, the last piece was put in place. It's the work of art it always promised to be, isn't he talented?

Did he make that himself? That's impressive. No one will ever try to escape from your house!!

Yep he did make it himself and so far the dog hasn't managed to find a way to escape.
