We were up with the lark again and lo and behold, Martin turned up with Anthony, the carpenter. He was on his own today and fairly quickly started on my room first. It didn't take him too long to finish, then he received a phone call. By then, Martin had gone, without so much as a goodbye! Anyway, it seemed the phone call had been some sort of crisis, as Anthony said he had to go, but that he would be here on Monday morning early.
So.......... drum roll.........
Isn't it beautiful? Of course there isn't any skirting board yet or a door! But I just love it.
The Saga of Buster's Bed
Poor Buster is having terrible trouble keeping his new bed by the boiler to himself:
Sandy snuggled up in the corner! He is a cheeky cat:
BlackJack on the rug, Buster and Sandy in the bed!
Sandy stretches out a bit more - well, as much as he can.
Poor Buster, he looked so worried.
BlackJack poses for a photo.
Later on, Jim called me to the kitchen, and this is what we saw:
Buster had given up on his bed and was sharing the rug with BlackJack and Sandy! Poor boy doesn't quite know what to make of it all!
'Help Me Daddy'!!!
This is the brand new chair given to me by Ann Broderick. It'll be perfect for one of the bedrooms. Aren't I lucky? It's a sort of chunky Regency. The seat is actually really comfortable.
If you've been following my blog you'll know that Jim dropped our television a while ago, and it broke, not surprisingly. We've been getting by with an old one with a 14" screen. As I have to have the sub titles on, it's pretty hard to read them on such a small screen. So Jim brought us a new tv on Wednesday and set it up in the snug today:
I love it! I can sit here at my computer and still watch it in the snug!! That's my kind of television! I can't wait to watch 'Strictly Come Dancing' tomorrow evening!
At the moment the film 'Witches of Eastwick' is on, which I have seen a couple of times but it always makes me laugh and I just love Jack Nicholson! He's so, so, BAD!
It's been wet and cold today, the first time we've had the boiler up to it's highest setting, number 5. It seems to be coping ok so far.
I took Buster on a walk down to the lake just before dark and I had to wear my Damart cardigan and Jim's big coat! I was amazed to see that the fishing stand behind Kevin's house was almost covered by the water! I suppose we have had quite a bit of rain lately. I didn't walk out on it and Buster wasn't too happy with that water level either.
Happy Weekend to Everyone.
