Busy, busy!

We spent a very long day working on the house yesterday!  Michael attached the last of the radiators ready for the boiler to be switched on, repaired some reclaimed facings and put up the new bannister at the top of the stairs.  I finished painting the kitchen and the builder started finishing off the outside of the extension.  We ordered mattresses today, carpets are here ready to be laid and curtains are all ready to be hung.  I just need a few days to blitz the cleaning first!

Kitchen plastered

This week saw the final plastering of the kitchen.  It will be dry enough for me to paint on Friday!  I sat outside in the garden yesterday for the first time this year painting windows.  It was lovely and warm in the garden, our new extension shelters us from the icy wind coming off the sea!
