Sunshine for Easter weekend

Looks like things were timed just right for this weekend – no end of sunshine, warm weather and the tulips in front of the cottage in full bloom.  It’s a shame that they won’t last very long.  We have summer flowers growing at the moment but will need to find something to bridge the gap.   But for now… these will do nicely.

Looking back – Before and After

One year ago… in the thick of enlarging the 2nd bedroom and putting support in the floor to allow for the new stairs.    It was a voyage of discovery and we know one thing for certain:

We will never EVER buy a place covered in woodchip wallpaper again! 🙂

It is nice to look at it now and appreciate the effort.  We were lucky to know an awesome joiner, architect, electrician and plasterer.  The painting (and woodchip scraping…) we did ourselves.
