Brrr, it feels very wintry today. Cold and grey although the rain from the south west won’t hit us until late tonight.
I’m missing our log fire today. The gas living flame fire is on in the sitting room and is very effective but it’s not the same as the real thing. Graham, the joiner, came earlier in the week and fitted all our new doors. I am delighted with them and it’s lovely to have doors that I can actually shut now; the old ones definitely needed replacing.

Unfortunately the two sets of glazed double doors leading from the sitting room have not been delivered yet so he wasn’t able to complete the job. Hopefully it will all be finished soon.

Work will start immediately after Christmas on the new bathroom and then we will turn our attention to the biggest project of all - the kitchen. We plan to knock a wall down between the existing kitchen and dining room to give us a big open plan space. The first thing we have to do is get a structural engineer round to see if we will need a steel beam. Then we have to co-ordinate builders, plumbers, electricians and kitchen fitters. It’s going to be one big mess before it’s finished!
