Lampshades…. Painting…. Carpentry and other bits!!!

Well we are motoring on with the house decorating!! Upstairs is ready for the carpeting (which we have booked in now for very soon in September!!!!)  
 James and his Dad have been finishing off the staircase ready for the carpet fitting!
 James and I’ve oiled the staircase oak!


Downstairs the two newly minted carpenters (James and his Dad) have fitted all the skirtings and have blocked up holes in the downstairs loo round the pipe work!

We’ve been to IKEA for a few things….

We’ve taken delivery of a washing machine!!!

And little Sir has a walker to play in and eventually zoom round the tiled floor!!


A Full farm update….

We have been busy bees, painting, architraves, skirting….

James’ parents have been amazing and have done soooooo much painting and James and his Dad have done all the woodwork upstairs!!! Its nearly at the point of having carpets put in upstairs and painting started downstairs!!!!

So Much to Say!!!

Blimey two months have gone by without a post…..

Whilst there has been no building work done at the farm inside…. because we are awaiting a response from the bank STILL!!!!  I have been down there most of the summer holidays and sooooo much has been done!!!

Firstly there was James’ surprise.  His Mum and Dad came down to the farm to keep me company whilst I was there during the week on my own, waiting to meet a couple of tilers for quotes and to meet the building control officer to talk about access and what constitutes finished for him!

We went to the local Builder’s Merchant and bought some paint and then James’s wonderful Mum and Dad painted the gable ends of the house which we had had rendered!!!!

Doesn’t it look amazing now its painted and the stickers are off the patio windows!!

Thank you Julia and Geoff!!!!!
