I thought I'd do a little round-up of how things have changed, and continue to change.
(I am so sorry that I lost my initial photos that showed how we did so much work to the inside of the house but hopefully you will get the idea of how things have developed.)
we finally ended up with a better looking space to work with and here we are today from these angles.
Right, this is getting a bit self-indulgent as I have spent lots of time looking at how things have changed and our achievements in the last year or so. I could have included so many more photos but that would have been ridiculous!
Hope you enjoyed some of these photos. It does make you realise how far you have come when you see the differences between now and then.
In less happy news one of our elderly neighbours died at the weekend. Pat, in her 80's, was one ot the first people to come to our front door and also to say hello to Jon whilst he was swinging his legs from the scaffolding pointing the gable end. She came brandishing a list of things that would be happening at the community centre across the road from us hoping we would join in. And I did. Also Pat would drop by and have a brew with me and I would stop by to check she was ok. I will miss her very much and was very pleased that her family came to tell me of her passing.
