Hello Dear Reader,
We’ve now called a halt to any further work for the long weekend. We’re now on holiday for a few days. We need to get our energy back. I’ll have a walk and an early night after this very long day.
This morning, we moved down stairs. We have a bedroom and a bathroom on the top floor and open plan living downstairs. The place is habitable but far from finished. I have a big functioning kitchen and I’m looking forward to some proper cooking.
Our friend John came round today and installed a shower and toilet. The previous toilet was cracked and was ready to fall apart. The shower was a tiny leaky hose with a nozzle the size of a box of tic tacs which we had to hold over our heads. It felt like we were camping……in the 1970s!
DB built the stairs, there’s a hole and the stairs are in. It’s such a relief to be able to use the house. It’s no longer a house and a studio flat but an entire house.
In total, we’ve lived in the house for six weeks. Even though it’s no where near finished, I think we’ve come a long way. I’ve had a lovely soak in the shower, I’m sat on a sofa in my living room with a fluffy dog and I’m feeling very spoilt by my extremely hardworking husband.
