What a miserable day, we have had such a good run weather wise that it’s a shock to the system when it’s grey, damp and misty all day long. I felt for the roofers today when the final Velux was going in, must have been grim up there. The extra skylight makes such a difference, the photo does not do it any justice. Even on a day like today the light was flooding in to where the stairs will be. My little bookshelf is looking good and is being used as a tool store just to check that it works.
Ryan has been stripping the wonderful bird wallpaper off today. I thought we had a sauna in the house at one point there was so much steam. He was chuffed to find a note from a previous owner, he was not to know it was from my Dad. What a lovely surprise to hear from him (in a manner of speaking). I’ll be adding to this very soon, ‘reinstated 2013’.
Other Stuff – Today’s Findings
The very last place that had not been emptied needed to be cleared out today. The dining room cupboard. A pipe has to go down the back of it from upstairs. In there I have found some more interesting objects not to mention enough Edinburgh Crystal to open a shop. Here are my ‘must keep’ favourites.
Make sure you have a look at the cherry blossom on my other post today. Dad loved recounting its latin name, Prunus Autumnalis Rosea. He said it so much I know it too. Must teach it to my children. winter flowering cherry

Aw, must have been lovely to see your dad’s note. I still think of them everyday xx
I think the cheese beano was from either uncle Peter or Derek.. That stag plate.. Was it from G and G Purves’ house?? The wall note from dad brought a tear as it shows I am so glad the house is now yours and finding things like the wall graffiti means more to us than anyone else x
How lovely to find the treasure – the note and the china 🙂 Not sure about the cheese beano though x
Thanks Katie – all our MCC mugs were Rosen when the cupboard fell of the wall, so we are really pleased to get that one. Your Mum loved the winter flowering cherry – a breath of spring in these cold damp days. A xx
We’ll keep the mug safe for your next visit to Edinburgh. Thanks for the kind words x
The old vicar says the cheese beano wasn’t him. The note brought a tear to us too – we miss them both so much xx
