The fabulous French

Over the last month or so we have had a fabulous Frenchman called Fred living with us and helping with the house. We have now managed to sand the floor, paint all of the walls and almost get the kitchen in - we love you Fred!

Party time

So we managed to patch up the house enough to hold a christmas party and what a lot of fun it was!
The day before we had big holes in the floor and the old kitchen was in the garden. For party time we put the kitchen back in the house, fixed the holes and distracted people with food (that they brought) tunes and some sunshine.

Bricks

Today we ripped off some more plasterboard, found some new bricks and almost ordered a kitchen.
Our help x'er Gabriel is fantastic and worked with Dan to remove a load of plasterboard while I bought a load of wrong things from Bunnings and failed to buy a kitchen!
Finished off with curry number 6 with Aileen McSparkle.

Empty wall space

So the walls are down and the new window is in! The carpenters Will and Luke are quite lovely and almost finished.
Next job is unexpected rewiring.... that starts tomorrow and then the plastering, floors, kitchen and paint. Phew.
My commute to work is pretty nice, the cycle path is lined with palm trees and agapanthus,  feels a little bit Californian.
