A digger in my garden...

Firstly, I am very sorry for not posting for a while but I have been pre-occupied with the work going on at our house.  Anyway...

I had a lovely Mother's Day and was treated to this lovely breakfast.  I wanted to show you the lovely tea for one teapot which my little boy gave me.  (Chosen with a bit of help from Daddy!)  It is perfect as it is all my favourite colours and I just love my cups of tea.

That is Ewan sticking his little finger in my breakast!
You're probably wondering what has been going on in the house?  Well, firstly I want to say thank you for all the advice about door handles v door knobs.  We decided on handles in the end! Mostly due to the fact that there was a better choice available.

All the new doors are now installed and waiting to be varnished.  The whole look of the house is much improved and I am so glad we chose this design. 

You might also notice that the walls are all white now.  In our living room anyway!  We finally stripped off that old wallpaper and painted everything white to freshen it up before we are able to properly decorate.  It is amazing what a difference a coat of white paint can make.

A reminder of how it used to look!
We are delighted that work has finally begun on the extension.  The old sun porch has been torn down and foundations dug out and some bricks laid.  The workmen are putting timber joists in today so we are glad that the weather is still good.

Ewan has been enjoying watching the men at work and particulary liked the digger being in the back garden. 

Work is going well so I will try to get some more photos taken soon and keep you updated!
