Hi everyone, so good to be back after my mini summer blogging break. My aim is to hop on here at least once a week but we’ll see how that goes as our little addition,
We had a fantastic time while Hubby was off work for two weeks. The weather was amazing. The first week was a working holiday and Hubby certainly worked hard!
We used to have a wedge shaped piece of land between the house and the garage. At the from its the width out a doorway but at the back is quite a bit wider so Hubby built a shed to fill in the gap!
As you can see it’s not quite finished. A little more work on the roof, another coat of paint and some glass for the window needed yet! And the best thing is that all the wood you can see, including the door didn’t cost us a penny!
Between bits leftover from jobs and wood with slight defects that the local shed company leave out for people to help themselves to, we have managed to do this at a very low cost.
Inside is a bit junky at the moment but you can see the basic layout. The tall brown cupboard on the right will go and there’ll be a butler sink there. The door on the left is where Hubby knocked through to the garage. Wellies and old coats will come out here. We have an extra fridge and freezer out here too and eventually the washing machine will be here too and I’ll have a dishwasher indoors. To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about that. I’m quite happy washing up by hand and I like the convenience of having the washing machine indoors but we’ll see, I’m sure I’ll love it once I get used to it!
Reading that back makes me sound old and stuck in my ways, oops. It must be being the wrong side of forty. I must admit though that change does bother me a bit more than it used to but I’m determined not to get like that as I get older.
So, what did Josh do during this week? He helped Hubby at times, played with Tilly quite a bit and played in the pool. Yes we, well Josh really, has a small pool in the garden. He worked with his cousin, helping him with some gardening for a day and a half and earned himself enough money to buy a 12′ diameter pool. We have had so much use out of it and had lots of friends round to see Tilly and have a dip!
Well I’ve rambled rather so I’ll leave our second week and tell you about that another time.
I hope you’re all doing well and have a lovely and creative week.
