Hard work

Well here we are again, Monday morning, after what has been hard working weekend, I bearly have the energy to lift my arms enough to reach the keyboard. However we have made some excellent progress, so with hard work comes results!!

This weekend we completed a number of tasks - lots of things to tick off the list (Hooray!). We took a very early delivery of our sleepers for the back garden
After lots of hard work digging (heavy clay sun baked soil and LOTS of stones- sheesh) We have managed to make this (I still have a bit of soil to put back in and it needs to be planted up)
The wall deals with the slope in the garden by making the bad along the back all one height, so its a lot higher on one side.

As if that wasn't impressive enough, we also managed to collect the white glass (obscured glass) for the door to the back room and top panel of the new door frame

We have also removed the last of the kitchen units (meaning we are now down to washing up in the bath as the sink has gone) and the husband has nearly finished the wiring, but behind the sink we found a glorious array of very retro wall paper and some newspaper from the 1950's

The kitchen now looks very bare indeed and its a bit strange. We hope that the units will start to be fitted by the end of this week (fingers crossed), but in the meantime we will have plenty to get on with in the garden and glazing the door.

Now on with the working week! At least I get the sit down for a bit (though its a bit painful getting up again....)
