It’s pretty frosty out there but I reckoned if the water wasn’t freezing in the bucket it should be ok to start some pointing. I found a great video on YouTube which helped with my technique, but my results look like the ‘how not to’ example. It will all be covered by mosaic so I wasn’t being overly careful, plus I was blending up to the edges of the render that has stayed stuck. Megan wanted to play constantly, it’s like having a toddler again, so I had to keep stopping to throw the ball otherwise she would drop it in the mortar.
Repairing render and pointing, roughly!
