Progress..... very slow but I can finally see a difference in my house!!!  Yay!!!  The walls are plastered and drying, the kitchen cabinets and sink are in, we have a new back door and half the plumbing is done! So now we are waiting for the Plumbers to finish and the decorators to do their stuff when the plaster has dried and then the floor can be laid!

I'm still taking the easy way out though and we are decamped at the cabin for at least tonight, mainly because I don't see the point is starting any of the clean-up operation until the house is finished but partly 'cos I'm a lazy ass and if we stay here I don't have to get up at 6.30am to let the workmen all in!

It's really warm and sunny in England today and I'm having an ok day (apart from a small car crash which I'll blog about when I've clamed down!!!) We are sitting on the dock in our shorts and t-shirts looking at the river:

I'm sure I've mentioned it before but I love that it's so peaceful here.  Apart from the very occasional barge passing you can only hear the birds so I'm going to sign off, grab my book and enjoy the last hour of sunshine whilst Chick plays with her Barbie's!!!  Hope y'all are having a good day too!


  1. Yay for the house work being done! So fun! and that river? I would like to sit there!

  2. It is definitely worth the pain of your renovation to escape to the cabin and have that view!

  3. Great to hear about the progress on your house - do you have a finish date in mind? Beautiful shot, too. Really calm and lovely :)

  4.'s completely amazing and so relaxing!

    Muummmmeeeeee.....I'm not sure about that ;-)

    @Rachel.....We're hoping by the end of next week for the bulk of the work and then we can redecorate!!! There is light at the end of the tunnel.....Yay!!!!!

  5. Nice to see you calm for a little while Miss.I really do need to go to the cabin for a chill, as you know what a stressy week I have had.Hope you had a great weekend.
