After another good weekends work with the Living Room almost completed, the curtains are up, some of the boxes of books are unpacked .....
... we even have pictures on the walls.
Here are the pooches posing with their new friend the door stop ...... who is currently unemployed !!
The large gap in the left hand corner is where our tall bookshelf will sit, but it's one of the few things that doesn't fit in the back of the truck and will have to come up when we are bringing the big animal trailer in a couple of weeks.
The cupboards are now all painted, white inside and our gorgeous green outside. But what's that flash of blue to the right I hear you ask, it looks slightly out of place ....
... it's a shower curtain in the bathroom doorway !!
Had you spotted that we are missing a few doors, well ALL of them to be exact. On Friday we took off all the doors and delivered them to the door stripper who will be dipping them in his solution and removing years worth of paint, and hopefully bringing them back to their former glory. We have no idea what they will look like, but it most definitely cannot be any worse than the lumpy bumpy layers of peeling paint that was on them. If they come up well we will be staining and waxing them, if they look dreadful it will have to be a fresh coat of white paint, I have my fingers firmly crossed for the former option.
I can't wait to see them, but it will take a total of two weeks until we can go and pick them up again, so I will have to be patient. In the meantime we are completely open plan, and the only bit of privacy is our shower curtain to the bathroom, which the dogs have now discovered is absolutely no barrier whatsoever , so every shower, bath or visit to the loo is accompanied by two little doggies, who are absolutely fascinated by this new viewing delight.
Oh well we do our best to keep our animals entertained :-)
Oh, and although we remembered to put back the clocks while we were in Wales, we got home, did various jobs and then sat down to some television on Sunday night not realising that we hadn't changed a single clock back here. Sooooo another glass of wine and another hours tv it was then ..... most welcome after that long journey home battling wind and rain and slow slow traffic on the motorways.
