Whilst having breakfast in the woods with my family we heard a bang, thought nothing more of it and went about eating and drinking, then a creak and some more creaking. Yes, something was happening and it didn't sound too good. Then a serious creak and a 'let's move quickly' we did, a crash, a thud, the ash limb broke and landed on the top of the 'palace', luckily it remained attached to the tree, otherwise the 'palace' would have been splinters. I jump onto the roof to check for damage to the liner and carpets, but it seems to be okay. A few days later Paul came over and with remarkable skill took the limb down without any damage to the 'palace'....an almighty phew from me.
