Five Photo Friday............

.................And  Bathroom Update 2 So mostly we've spent the week in the smallest room. Not much time outside which I'm really missing. However progress has been made. Cabinets are well on the way to being finished.

Tiling and grouting are done. The colours are much prettier in real life, the look I'm going for is a coastal relaxed look.

Maybe this week will see the rest of the house returned to normal! I am feeling a bit more positive too, the end is in sight.

It's a bit of an assault course at the moment.

I'll leave you with a happy sight, our hedgehog made an appearance last night. He's looking very big and healthy, I'm hoping he'll find a nice corner of the garden to hibernate. We've called him Milligan (after Spike)

Hope you've all had a good week. See you soon Love ♥Sue♥

Oh and a rather alarming crack in the toilet.
                                        Finally I persuaded Lovely Man to get the builders in.
Now, he can do all the work beautifully, loves doing it, is amazing at it. Unfortunately Parkinson's disease kind of has other ideas, it's just too much after a hard day at work. The last thing he needs is spending all night renovating and getting exhausted.  We need our free time, free to enjoy, while we can. So in came the builders.
They made a good start.  Week one old bathroom ripped out walls striped and re plastered. Good all good, no stress. Then week two.
Basin in, pipework done.  New window in. Then without warning everything went…
