All quiet


After in Annie Sloan Duck Egg and a layer of clear wax

My badge collection from 30 years ago!  It will become a piece of art!
Things have been a bit quiet over the past few weeks.  I have been busy making costumes and being a nun in the Sound of Music so the house has taken a back seat!  While I have been at home I have been treating some furniture for woodworm and refurbishing it.  I am really pleased with the results!

The carpets are ordered and all the appliances are ordered too - just need a kitchen to put them in!  The joiners are starting to build the frame for the kitchen this week so it shouldn't be too long now!

Foundations in

Over the past couple of weeks we have had the builder in digging out the foundations and filling them back up again for the new kitchen.  It is now ready for the joiner to put the frame up which should start in the next few weeks.  They have promised it will be wind and watertight by the end of the month!
