The Oak floor has been fitted to the bedroom, (bed being delivered on Wednesday!) and work is going well in the ensuite - continued tonight - and continuing tomorrow! (shower going in)
I havent had the opportunity to take many photos due to builders vans being parked on the drive - .... not being particularly photogenic! and inside it's much the same, - we have moved furniture in now and it's looking great, but there are still bins and dust sheets etc... spread about -so am planning a mass tidy up over the next few days hopefully and will keep this blog post updated.
In the meantime, as I left the cottage tonight - I was able to get a shot of the doorway - with more to come soon ............ promise :-)
at a later date ..
.... and as promised i'm updating the update, it's now Thursday evening, the bed was safely delivered yesterday (with no gas or air!) and I have left Paul tonight continuing with the ensuite - which is looking great. - infact the more we do to the place, - I feel like moving in myself :-) !
I called in on my lovely friend Trude today, - who is so so talented with a cotton and thread, and she handed me over the curtains and blinds she has created from the William Morris Strawberry Thief fabric. I think Paul was just as enthusiastic as I was, and in a matter of minutes the small window in the lounge was suitably attired !
The lounge area is really starting to come together, - quite comfy and cosy!
Steph and I visited Barn Antiques at Quinton yesterday : http://www.barnantique.co.uk/
Actually we were looking for a coffee table, and bedside cabinets.
...... and came home with a log basket and pine shelf !
And Finally, - before I rest my weary head tonight to dream about curtains and tie backs, - a special "Hello" to Paul and Tracey who we saw at the beginning of the week, - it was lovely to see you both again and thank you for all the positive comments about the cottage.
will be keeping you posted !
