Busy Indoors and Out

 
What's that we spy from the bedroom window.....

 
... surveyors lurking in Chicken World.
 
They were here the other day taking level measurements all around the house.  Measuring, taking notes, photographing and playing with their theodolite all around the place.  It's the first stage of the work towards our second planning application, so we can build  open fronted garage spaces and a workshop for Lovely Hubby next to the house.  The roofs of these will provide the platform for our solar panels, hopefully making us self sufficient for most of our electricity.  Another tick on our list.

 
Meanwhile indoors, two plumbers tried to fathom innards of the upstairs toilet, it's a good job they were friends the space they were both in is tiny, really tiny :-)
 
 
While washing the cups from all the cups of tea I had been making this gorgeous little face stared back at me.

 
The surveyors' dog patiently waiting for his master to finish work.  Isn't he gorgeous, our dogs loved him, but I kept them inside while so much was going on.
 
And I apologise for the unseasonably cold weather .... I unpacked my Summer clothes from the suitcase under the bed ..... need I say more!!

    1. It didn't work when we moved in, and ever since we managed to get it working we've had nothing but trouble. Touch wood (taps head) since the guys came back for the second time it actually flushes AND stops flushing when it should.

      It's the only kind of loo that would fit in the tiny space available, I don't know how Lovely Hubby will even fit in there once the door is back on ;-)

    2. Why not leave the door off and put up a heavy curtain? I've seen that in a couple of small cloakrooms!

    1. It was nice to catch up again, and nice that our guys had so much in common.

      Sorry about the weather, I'm going to slide that suitcase full of summer t shirts and dresses back under the bed and see if the weather improves again :-)

      Take care. xx
