Summer 2014

I've not posted for some time as I have lost the charger to my camera!  A new one is now on it's way so I can retrieve all the holiday photos.

Summer was not as good as last year but we still had plenty great days at the beach and in the water.  It meant that not a lot of work was done on the house!  We started the summer with a fantastic outdoor performance of 'George's Marvellous Medicine' at Duff House in Banff.  This was the second show we have seen from Illyria and it did not disappoint.   The boys swam with their snorkels, jumped off the harbour wall (once!) and enjoyed meeting some friends from last year.

We have had our builder and plasterer in finishing off some things for us.  The coving was completed at the beginning of the summer.  That has really finished off the rooms and has also stopped the draughts!  Our builder has bricked around the back of the fireplace and that marks the completion of the living room.   All we need is a door on the downstairs toilet and cement at the back door  and we can apply for our completion certificate!

A storm coming in - we had a few of those!

Couldn't get the boys off the beach on this night! 
Living room finished, I love the fireplace!
