The outside tap now has it's own bonnet to prevent freezing up!
Things are moving on in the house. Bathrooms are almost finished, tiling and grouting almost done. Nicole and I have stripped wallpaper from another two rooms.
She carried on even during a tea break! The back of the house is so cold, that Nicole has now moved into the room we just stripped, which being on the south side and above the room where there is a log burner burning most of the day, is much warmer. (Hotwater bottles and bedsocks still required!)
Now that work in the house is almost done, materials have started to arrive to start on the barn.
Plasterboard for the walls.
Stone blocks to support the roof over the terrace.
The house is still full of dust and holes, but it is moving on. Tomorrow sees my biggest challenge yet - taking the car to the garage to get the 'MOT' test done. Appointment has been made (not by me!) but I have to take it and explain that I am responsible for changing the headlights (which are not quite shining in the right direction!) to the mechanic whose accent is apparently very local. Wish me luck......
