Thought I'd post a picture of how the garden has blossomed since the air has turned to Spring. Loads of colour coming out now with plants and flowers I have no idea what they are. Need to get in there and do some weeding at some point too.

Front house windows

So we finally got our planning permission approved to have the windows at the front of the house installed, only took 2 months!

One of our neighbours told us when we'd already ordered them - the back windows are already installed - that we needed planning permission because our road had recently been turned into a conservation area.

So we pre-empted the approval and booked the installation 2 days after the agreed approval date and they're in!

Toilet installed

The toilet was finally fully installed this week. Take any timing a tradesman gives you and double it! Anyway, it's in and working so we now have an en suite loo in the room.

I have just finished putting grout cleaner and protector on the tiles. The plumber put his grubby paws all over the paintwork so the walls will need another coat (will have to cover everything in paper/plastic) of paint. Black pipe will also need painting to white.
