Really slow progress on the house front - which is frustrating but appears to be out of my hands. The planning permission has at last kicked into action and the notice is now outside the house which did create a Yippee of excitement, but part of me knows that this is so far from getting the work actually done. In reality I think we will be lucky if we have it done next year - sigh*
The garage was supposed to be done this summer, but we are still waiting for roof to be tested for asbestos (builder has not sent the sample off yet - another sigh*), and we have not ordered the wooden structure which takes about two months to come (third sigh*).
On a more positive note we have managed to put up two sets of curtain poles and lots of pictures, so the place does feel a bit more like home.
