Filler added and then a coat of brown paint (in case anything drops off and you see the underneath) then some glue and green tea.

The green tea is very effective, any idea how it ages?

No idea at all -- but the tea I have has not changed over quite a long time.
The tea bag was used and then dried in the sun before storage, if that helps.

Does Earl Grey give a slightly different colour and texture??

I prefer Typhoo, but then, I am a heathen!

I am more of a heathen than you - I don't drink tea.
I have some green tea and also some ordinary tea that I use for soil.  Like the foil from wine bottle tops -- "she who must be obeyed"" drinks it for me.

Beetroot would be more appropriate I think.  And maybe a Russian peasant woman picking it to make a big pot of Borsch for the brave defenders of The Motherland.

Very very good Zak and Kitemen  "Spudlova" and "Tatty"
The roof is now on and just a few bits and bobs to finish.
My friend Oggy is happy -- he has a nurse to look after him and his bike is near by -- he is not even bothered about the head wound.

but he should be - head wounds can have quite long lasting effects, as you've proved from that time your Mum dropped you on your head when you a child  ;)
