Just popping in to say ‘hi’. We still have no internet use at home and so I’m having to be a bit creative about where and when I can get online. I am really missing my daily blogging; reading yours and posting mine, and am beginning to feel disconnected  😦 But I can hop on Mr L’s iPhone and check in so please keep visiting and commenting – I’ll be back properly soon!

The only painting that has been going on around here, is of the garden furniture. An epic four coats! One of primer (that wasn’t needed once we read the tin properly) and a quick change of product and colour’s and then another three coats of that. It’s looking really good though and when the sun shines (ha!) I’ll take some pic’s.

I delved straight into stripping the new studio room a week after we moved in. Then we decided that if we needed electricity and water for that room, then why not install an en suite in the next door bedroom while we were at it. Cue a long trail of plumbers (all saying different things) plastering quotes, scaffolding quotes, roofing quotes, plumbing quotes, electrician quotes, trips to bathroom fitting stores (not as much fun as I’d hoped) and some demolition to make space for it all. you get the picture?!

“It will be worth it once it’s done” is something I’m heard saying at least three times a day but it’s at that dirty, messy, boring stage where it’s tempting to go for a quicker, simpler option. But hey, at least we can sit out in the garden on our newly painted furniture and ignore what’s going on inside!
