Lifting the curtain
Whilst the curtains have been drawn, we've quietly been making progress. We've given the bathroom a lick of paint. The loft has been fully boarded. And we've officially got builders and an architect. Over the last 6 days, the chimney breast has been knocked out from roof to kitchen. Wallpaper has been stripped (me! I did that bit!) and the bedroom ceiling came down (not quite planned - I didn't do that bit...).
We're currently living in our sitting room on the sofa bed, with the fridge and Miss P. There is a comedy 'slumber party' feel about the set up. Miss P was quite excited on night one, nonplussed on night two and irritated on night five. Tonight - night six - and we're hoping that she'll sleep until 5:30am. One can only hope.
Lots of progress photos to come. And baking - I must share my epic baking day. And our week off - yes, a whole week. No blackberry. Just us. A little bit of pottering, local day trips, sun hats and a smattering of freckles. Some big birthdays were had - Mum turned 60 and Grandpa turned 90. Oh - and I got to see Beyonce - wildly random, but utterly brilliant. Uh oh ohh, oh oh ohh, ohh.
