Now you’ve seen what has happened today, all outside action.  The dormers are finished except for the actual windows that is, they won’t be long.  The Velux windows are going in tomorrow, one in each of the front bedrooms, one for the bathroom and one above the stairs.  The stairs are being made right now too, at the other side of Edinburgh, near Ikea, if you’d like to know.

Little Green Shed is a blog I am sure to read every time there is a new post.  Here’s the link – http://littlegreenshed.blogspot.co.uk/.  I am delighted to have joined the ‘nature in the home’ series on the blog, it is exciting to be able to add a tiny part to such an inspiring blog.   Here is today’s contribution.

The pot of daffodils is from last year.  I left the pot at the back door with the intention of planting the bulbs outside at some point. They never did get planted and now here the little daffies are on my windowsill again, cheering the place up, for a second year.  Just as well they never made it into the earth outside, maybe this year when the flowers have all gone.

Well, this is how it started upstairs today.  Where’s the fabulous blue sky gone?

The new bathroom has started to arrive…

now, how does it all fit in the bathroom?

Mark and I spent half an hour today trying to work out how exactly the pieces will fit in the jigsaw of the bathroom.  Think we’re nearly there.  Tricky to imagine it with tiles and a proper floor.

We needed some work done outside for the bathroom drainage.  Mark had a rare time hacking and burning the old pipe off.  My jasmine will never be the same but never mind.  We just won’t mention exactly how the broadband went down for a while.  Lucky the electrician  happened to  pop in just at the right moment or I wouldn’t be able to post today. Perfect timing.

Here’s a wee picture of our first daffodil to cheer you up, spring is coming, for sure.
