I know i’ve been quiet on the blogging front lately but we’ve been buried under the rubble of restoration – our hands are raw from hard work and our hair is perpetually covered in a fine layer of dust and i think we’ve lost or put on weight [i cant really tell which as we’ve been eating anything we can lay our hands on but working hard enough for ten people?].
As Spring begins and I write this with the sun streaming through the new gauzy curtains in our bare bedroom, I feel like I am sluggishly emerging from a long dream – those awful days of late night wallpaper stripping seem a world away and the frantic time sensitive evenings making a hundred trips in David’s VW Beetle to transport all of our belongings and my hundreds of books seem… well not so far away… but the memories are fading.
The place is far from done – the windows still need painting – they will all need at least a whole weekend’s attention. Some fixtures still need fitting in the bathroom. The whole spare room had to be re-papered because the walls were so bad and still needs painting, the hallway needs a floor and the living room is waiting for more furniture! But I thought i would share a few up to date pictures with you [I am in love with the lights in our bathroom]… more soon!
