Day Thirty-Four

That’s us at seven weeks now, wow, this week has really flown in.  New stairs, lights decided on, windows organised, skeleton walls with some solid plasterboard up. The progress is incredible if you look back at these.

day one, day thirteen

Here’s today’s photos, hope you like them,

Friday afternoons have evolved a new ritual recently, the clear up for the weekend.  The hall goes through a huge dust removal procedure (extreme hoovering) and the bathroom gets cleaned and given its weekend look.  The colours in the mat are brilliant.

Other Stuff

We have some new improved dogs today, I always forget how funny they look when they’ve been clipped.  I think they look at little embarassed – what do you think?

There’s a bit of a running theme going on here this weekend, F is doing a sponsored run tomorrow and C  is doing a half marathon on Sunday. The closest thing to running I’ll be doing is running after them I suspect. Good on them though.

Just took this picture of Lucy relaxing, she’s so funny.

All that’s left to say is have a fabulous weekend x

Day Thirty-Two

What a funny day it’s been.  Sun, snow, hailstones, wind, great bright blue skies and a chill in the air.  These tulips would manage to cheer even the most solemn face. tulips

We had a visit from the window man, that’s the next big step.  Today’s big questions were how many astragals on the upstairs windows and what lighting to have upstairs.  All sorted now.

Two pictures from upstairs today, one from the front, the other from the back.  The whole perimeter is plasterboarded now and the ceiling (or walls, depending on who you ask) is next.

p.s.  Look what I got for Mothers’ Day.   I swear you would get 8 cups from it, it’s massive.  I’m saving it for once the regeneration is done.  I absolutely love it to bits.  Thanks to my lovely children and husband xxxxx

Tulips

My pretty tulips for Mothers’ Day.  Mother’s Day is bittersweet for me since losing my Mum.  The excessive marketing that goes with it is quite overwhelming at times.  I wish the marketeers would consider those of who have lost our Mums and those who long to be one.
