Getting on and getting better (the house and me)
Sorry there's been a bit of a break. Sadly I got more ill while away with Phil and Shelagh and we ended up coming back a bit early for me to go to the doctor and get pills for my bronchitis. Anyway, on the road to recovery after some time in bed and not doing much for a while.
As you will see from the photos, things have moved on quite a bit with the kitchen units installed in the kitchen and utility and we have a cloakroom with working toilet and running water - luxury even if the water isn't hot yet (the boiler says it should be but it's not so that's got to be sorted out). Tomorrow Mike the plumber moves to the bathroom and shower room so hopefully progress there soon.
We also have the new door from the lounge to the kitchen and the new radiators fitted in the kitchen making the house feel a bit warmer. Still no working radiators in the lounge so we are gobbling up electricity with the fan heater. In the meantime, I have come to realise that there is only one thing that makes more mess than taking down walls .... plastering (and that's not finished yet).
