Nearly at the end of the house build

When this photo was taken, we had no heating and the log burner that didnt produce any heat. The snow somehow managed to make it all look very pretty!

During the wretched build!

This was taken at the point where I really thought that it would never end and wondered why we had even bothered!

Before house build started

This is the house as we bought it in 2008....we needed alot of imagination!

The house build update 6 months on!

I am delighted to say that we now have a floor through out downstairs....after months of having concrete! That has been a huge change for us as it is alot cleaner. We had floorboards laid down and then we painted them white,,it was a good idea at the time! We spent the whole of winter without central heating, we had oil heaters. When it hit -15.c the girls got into bed with us. It was bad but not as bad as the previous Christmas that we spent with no roof - just tarpaulin. We decided to invest in a log burner which was very pretty but made absolutely no difference to the room temp...don't ask me why?
We finally got around to decorating the lounge just before Christmas 2009, but could I decide on a wallpaper? It took me ages to find something I liked. I finally settled on Laura Ashleys 'Josette' and I am pleased with it.

I have neglected my blog!

I have to hold my hands up and say that I gave up on my blog in October, but I am going to give it a go again!!!! So much has happened since I was last here, with the house, the business, it has been a very busy time.
