Whilst Mark completed the joinery on the roof, Luke threw himself into removing the arch between the kitchen and the old utility room.
Having been to Glasgow on business for a couple of days I was keen to see the progress made on the extension. Ali had finished removing everything from the kitchen just before the units were removed and reassembled in the garage. We have a temporary water supply to the garage so the washing machine is […]
After a weekend of looking at tiles and trying to keep one step ahead of the builders it was a welcome break to visit Liss Forest as a family. Megan is gaining confidence on her bike without stabilisers and William loves riding with his big sister.
Today Chris and Luke joined Mark to crack on with the roof despite the temperature topping twenty five degrees. Its Luke’s 31st birthday today so I have a bottle of ice cold beer for him when he comes down from the roof.

Mummy was up at the crack of dawn to ice Megan’s cake before taking Togo for a long walk with Grandad. Meanwhile Grannie Annie enrolled Megan into helping with some household chores whilst Daddy and William went in search of a large number 5 helium filled baloon. With Party preparations complete we walked and scootered […]
