Ta daaaaaa!

Oh my goodness the mess that was created by this project, seemingly all so simple at the start, lets put a logburner in........and then  you have to have something to burn, four builders bags full.....

  Then we have the delight, a project finished and fully working, its so so comfy cosy and totally more than we ever expected, well worth all the mess, am now learning how to keep a nice fire burning.......

2 days and counting!

 Til our woodburner gets fitted, we have logs, 4 builders bags worth, we have blazer logs, we have kindling, we have stove fan, we have stove thermometer, we have wood damp meter, we have log basket, we have long matches and we nearly have the fireplace finished.  Hubby has worked long and hard on it, the bricks were so hard to chip away at they were really baked but he has done a grand job, mind you the brick dust, why is it it just gets everywhere, even 3 days later it still lands, but will be so worth it.  Daughter was laughing and telling me that they forecast a mild wet Christmas down south, and???? you'll just have to wear a thinner top because that fire is being!

Thought would share photo of front garden of bungalow, this was taken from the estate agents details, lots to keep me busy.

Changed my mind....

Ok, I must admit defeat, after starting my other blog I have decided to keep with my current one.  Far too much faffing around, didn't know what I was going to put where and when etc.   So the exploits of updating our bungalow will carry on here along with all else.  So thought would put pics up yeuk fireplace which is in transition, hubby has been working really hard...lots of pics later but for now.

Thought would show you the pretty view from our bedroom window, it is so nice opening the curtains in the morning and seeing this.  We have a lovely conservatory to the side.
