Over the last four years or so, we have had our fair share of ups and downs.

 

But this is an up. And now,  GCNs are very welcome.

From a twinkle in our eyes in the little local-stone built cottage (to the left of the photo) to a contemporary orange (coloured) box... which will be silvery grey in a while. Like my receding hair. Lots more to do, but hey!

SWMBO reminds me we started when POTUS was being sworn-in , and just moved in by the time he had been sworn at long enough to be kicked out. Is there a lesson there? Probably not.🙄

A real achievement Ian.  Easy really, wasn't it?

 

You are now allowed to spend a bit of Christmas feeling proud of yourselves.

Thanks Dave.

Rendering to do on the west face front needs cladding too - but we now have a magician plasterer and a good chippy - but they are ragged raw with too many customers, MVHR second fix early next year - so  spring 2021 ish ?

Thanks. I post the difficult stuff partly to help write it out of my system and focus on the future, but also to encourage others. I have not lost my loathing of east winds yet

 

@jack, I need to learn to be a bit more pleased with our progress: I look at the niggles all the damn time.

We've been in five years next month and I still see the flaws and challenges virtually every day I live here, although I worry about them less as time goes by.
