I'm Susan and I live in a small village north of Norwich, UK. My main hobbies are reading, gardening, spinning and knitting, though not necessarily in that order....

Two weeks to go.... (maybe....)

Another week, more progress!  As we are hoping to move in a couple of weeks, we need to keep going.

All the door and window architraves are on and now need painting.... (my job), plus Neil has been busy laying the tiles for the lounge fireplace, and has finished tiling the bathroom.

I've been painting my new fireplace feature which will house my range cooker and extractor.  Never painted anything so fiddly before!  3 undercoats and its now ready for the final "buttermilk" colour coat.

The kitchen cupboard doors are nearly finished, and once they are on, the kitchen will look much better.

We now have water in the kitchen (at last......) and the old utilty room has been ripped out.

Ok, I have to admit I didn't actually do the heavy work, just gave it a quick bash with the hammer and then left the hard work to Neil.

As I write this the plumber is connecting up the gas boiler, hopefully by tomorrow we may have hot water!  No more boiling the kettle to wash up!
