With the lawn finally finished there was one last little job that I wanted to do before leaving. Months earlier I had told Seerung that where the lawn was going to border with the house I wanted to put in a small pebble path. She vowed and declared that it would look ugly and thought that we should not worry about it.
I stuck to my guns and when the garden kerbing was done I made sure some was also done along side the house.
When we purchased the turf in Ubon Ratchathani I also selected enough paving and pebbles to finish the job and asked them to deliver that along with the lawn.
With just a day before we left the village I set to work. The first thing to do was level off the soil a little better before pouring in quite a few wheelbarrow loads of sand from the river behind our house. Some mesh was then laid on top before pouring the stones on top of that.
With plenty of little people wanting to help we finished the job in no time.
When it was all finished Seerung came and took a look, smiled, nodded her head and said it looked fantastic. Phew!
