The First Post from the New Place



Well we've not moved in yet, that will be in a couple of weeks, but we are here and busy decorating most days.


Let me show you what we've been up to this week.




This room is an added part of the bungalow round the back, we've decided to use it as our office and utility room (that's mainly because the washer/dryer is situated here).  We've cleaned it up and painted everything white.



Ten windows to go round with masking tape and paint, no wonder we decided to get it out of the way first, my aching arm is testimony to the effort put in.  But now it's gleaming and sparkling white.




After a quick clean of the floor, aided and abetted by a certain little doggy that just had to rush in and kiss daddy....



... pose for the camera guys.



I put up the curtains and Lovely Hubby was able to connect us to the internet so Blogging could recommence.  We have our priorities here you know!!




One house that needs no decorating, thank goodness, this lovely little tree house just across from the office window. 



Inside there are little kitchen units ... 


... and a gorgeous little armchair and two patchwork pouffes on the upper floor to make the most of the lovely view.

  Underneath there are a couple of hammock seats, and to the right a normal swing and a larger bench swing  We could rent it out to family and friends, any one interested....you have to be under four foot to fully appreciate it!!

Back soon with more news and pictures, now I'm off to wield my paintbrush again before my arm seizes up completely.

Have a lovely weekend.

Sue xx

  3. Welcome back to blogland even if you aren't moved in fully yet. That room certainly looks better for a paint, much lighter. Is the combined window/door sort of a 1930's metal combo?

  19. Oh, the luxury of not having to move straight in!!

    I love the tree house.

  20. That tree house looks lovely. You are bound to have some young friends wanting to visit you so that they can play in it. Shame it isn't a little bigger so that you could have a holiday let.

    Take it steady with the painting. Looks lovely so far.

  23. You've made that room look lovely Sue. I hope it's warm enough in there- an add on with lots of windows sounds chilly.
    What a dear little tree house !

  24. Wow! Sue - that play house. They cost a fortune you know - seriously I bet there wasn't much if any change out of £5k. Just have a look on here - http://www.play-houses.com/the_range.html

    I would LIVE in there if it was me!!

    I love your new room, it looks white and fresh and lovely.

    It is all so exciting my friend!!
