The big news is that we now have a fireplace in our lounge and it looks wonderful! It looks so right that I think you wouldn't know it hadn't been there since the house was built! On the day the work started, I was lucky enough to have been out at the hairdressers, thereby missing this lovely sight...
And so to the POOL UPDATE!
Not quite what we expected as the first pictures of someone in our pool!!!
So what other "bits and bobs"?
Well, when the lovely weather arrived, Danny thought he'd better get himself a new hat - you have to protect the top of your head, you know! Here he is showing it off!
I wrote last time about having ordered our new kitchen. Well, we are hoping that the stonework that needs to be removed so that we can change the window to doors will be removed very soon. We went out on Saturday and bought doors for it, together with a door for the doorway between the barn next to the house and the utility room-to-be. So now, other than these doorways, we are totally ready to go, kitchen and utility room wise. Here are the component parts of my kitchen, languishing in Danny's barn....
Tiny, perfect, red and green apples
Cherries, ripening.... can I get to them before the birds do?
And finally... here I am, sitting in the shade as it was unbelievably hot on Sunday afternoon. Liam is keeping me company while I do the crosswords that Tony, my brother, sends me each week from the British Sunday papers!
I hope to be back soon with more news of the pool.... watch this space!
Till then..à bientôt
