I am not a great one for relaxing - it seems to me that wasted time is lost time... but sometimes you just have to! So I sucumbed to a holiday - but I won't be found lazing on a beach somewhere! No, it's busy busy busy for me!
Last year it was building the pond... this year it is the summerhouse! After it was delivered in about 6 million pieces we made the very sensible decision to let some burly chaps put it all together for us... and this was the view from the house on Saturday.
With the help of my friend Sarah Trude, Paul and I turned it into this by Saturday evening!
Then Paul and I got around to brunch on Sunday morning before giving the whole thing another coat.
Jack is settling in!
And we get to enjoy a little home grown cream tea!
It needs to take a few days to settle but we are beginning the fun part of furnishing it from junk shops and draping every surface I can find with quilts! Oh how exciting - and much better than lazing around on a beach!
