A new year

Sorry, I know it has been ages since my last post!  We have been finishing off lots of bits and pieces, none of which make very interesting photos!

We had a great time in the house over the Christmas period with our parents.  The weather was cold and crisp and we were able to do lots of walking to work off all the food.

We have started to landscape outside with the addition of a new fence which really tidies up the garden.  The back part of the garden has been levelled ready for a patio area, we just need to demolish the shed so we can finish it off.

Inside, cupboard doors have been hung, a few light fittings have been fixed and the downstairs bedroom now has a carpet.  I bought some beautiful fabric from Liberty in London when we were there on our long weekend.  I cannot wait to make it up into another quilt, Great British Sewing Bee has me inspired!

On another weekend away we visited Boyle's in Glasgow and picked out our coving for the downstair rooms.  It was a treasure trove of all sorts of designs and I think we came out more confused than when we went in!

The men doing the washing up!

Fantastic weather on Boxing Day

Took a couple of attempts to get the cables the same length!

Love my light fitting!
