I did promise to blog about the new house tonight but I've just looked for some pics and they are all too dark, so I will take some more tomorrow .....basically the house looks like a building site, its currently being rewired so all the walls have been chased and with it being a 1930's house its that awful black dust that has covered every inch of the house.....the new kitchen is currently residing in the front living room, the new bathroom laid in the boys room.. stripped bare walls waiting to be plastered, the floor in the old part of the kitchen hastobelevelled with the newer part as it has dropped. The only new thing to be put in is a new toilet in the downstairs cloakroom! I realise blogging about this without photos is boring so I will pop some on tomorrow so you can see it in all its taking longer than we thought so it looks like we will be moving in around July.......more tomorrow.....claire

So I came here looking for lovely photos to lift my grotty day but there are none!!! Sounds like a lot is all going on at once, hopefully it's not too stressful, enjoy it though because it can be a lot of fun. It's great to have you back, looking forward to more posts.
