My Husband's Graffiti

How sweet is this;


It will end up between the walls when the room is finished so won't see the light of day again until the next mad people decide to knock it down and start again! Probably in another hundred years.

Progress has been slow this week, we are all tired, aching and fed up. Last night with the help of my friend Mick we put up some of the ceiling;

Today we dug out all the crap that was in the fireplace with the help of my father-in-law. Why do people do that?!


The plan is to clean the bricks and white wash the chimney breast like in the girls' bedroom. It looks really good and will lighten the room as I want to go for a moody dark blue on the walls.

Still a stud wall to build and plastering to be done but Simon back at work tomorrow so we may be on the futon a while longer. It will so be worth it though. Am very excited as I can see it all coming together now.

The garden is looking good too and after I have filled a (nother) skip tomorrow it will look even better!! Hopefully it will all be finished and beautiful and the weather will hold at the weekend for Elizabeth's birthday.

Looking good! Back to work so soon though? Boo hiss! Can't wait to see the next stage. (our bedroom is wallpapered in a green leaf with a cream painted floor if you wanted to consider that!)
