Some bits from the first two weeks

My antique print tray passed to me by my mum, filled with plastic tat and trinkets alongside my Great Gran’s thimble, my own nappy pin and a wooden rabbit with one ear from my Granny.

Last weekend – so cold we lit the fire in the evening

This weekend – 26 degrees and enjoying summer flowers from my folks

New sand pit made from old Belfast sink we found in the garden

New improvised decking and pots to stop small people damaging themselves (somebody should tell her about that label)

The Olympic flame passed the bottom of our road so it would have been rude to miss it, although it was rather an odd occasion with more police and sponsors than torch bearers

We’ve been living in the house for two whole weeks now and I haven’t blogged anything yet, mostly because nothing is finished and I’m not quite sure where to start.  Should I post finished rooms with before and after shots, or bits and bobs along the way?  While I dither about what to post on a blog read by N and a handful of people who really don’t mind, here’s a couple of shots from the past couple of weeks.

    I know exactly what you mean about whether to post finished rooms only or snippets here and there! Love that your specimen draw is up already, mine (given to me by my mum too) is still wrapped in bubble wrap until I decide on it’s final destination. Which room is yours in?

      In the sitting room – still trying to decide how to fill the vast expanses of white wall that need filling all over the house so it may not be its final resting place. Worktops fitted today, and tomorrow we shall have a cooker! Hope you had a lovely holiday. x
