Dare I Believe

Well today should be the day

Barring any last minute delays

That finally we will own our home

Little Winter

I'm sorry little cottage that you are in such a state at the moment

But painting is still in progress

Lights have been renewed


Wood sanded

Plate rack hung


Open cupboard hung


Downstairs radiators removed

The clock hung

By men (Yes two) one to hang clock and one to say when it was level!!

Then repositioned by me! (After photo)

Holes filled

And drilled

And filled!

Furniture has been moved

Carpet for downstairs, stairs and landing measured for replacement after unfortunate accident involving rogue flying coal from the woodburner

Cooker ordered after site visit

Door man has been to measure for composite door

But little cottage you have a hobbit sized door and they do not make composite doors that vertically challenged

We're considering oak

I've fallen in love

Well who wouldn't?!

I'm trying to make the curtains

With thick interlinings

Lots of hand sewing

And then there's work

Lots of it

Both from our own business and my assessing role

Life is busy

But mostly good

I'm actually looking forward to us being 'empty nesters'

Although I've been assured that they will be popping home frequently!

Oh and a builder has been to plan for our side extension

Hopefully that will begin next February

And thus I need to get ready for work

And hope as hard as I can

(Eyes tightly screwed up kind of hope)

That the final legal proceedings go without any hitches today

Blessings J. x
