We have finally run out of steam in the DIY process. Sick of spending all day long in paint spattered old clothes we put away the paint pots, put some pictures up on the walls and put down the carpet.
Life has returned to a temporary kind of normal, until we have recharged our batteries and have the energy to do a whole battery of jobs that need finishing off. After nearly two years of moving our furniture and belongings up stairs and back down again, across the channel and back again (in some cases), in and out of the barn, it’s a miracle that we can still remember what normal is like.
We’re very pleased with the overall effect. Let’s hope that we don’t stop noticing the bits that aren’t finished and get around to finishing them – eventually!
Ten points to the person who can spot the forgotten screwdriver!
