Lounge blinds

Finally got the blinds up in the lounge tonight too. Started last night drilling holes but thought it was a bit noisy at 11pm so stopped until this evening.

We're both pretty happy with how they've turned out, though they could probably do with a steaming.

One step closer...

Dining room update

Just to update you all, the decorating in the dining room has been put on hold until January as the decorator slipped in the snow and fractured his arm :(

Bedroom blind

Just finished putting up the blind in our bedroom. I thought it was going to be a bit of a nightmare to line up the holes in the wood with the holes in the wall but Lu came up with a good idea and it all worked out quite well!

So we now have a proper anti-light device in our bedroom rather than the curtain from our last place which had temporarily (for a year!) stuffed in at the top if the window to keep light out.

Next, I'll be attempting the blinds in the loungebay window!

Sanding the dining room

We've spent the weekend sanding and varnishing the floors in preparation for the decorator coming next week. He's unfortunately fallen on ice and fractured his arm however so we're hoping he's going to be able to find us a replacement, otherwise we'll be doing it ourselves or waiting until next year :( fingers crossed!

One year anniversary

Just a quick note to say that we realised only this evening that its our one year anniversary at the house today!

We've come a long way and now we've just got to finish up the last stretch. More posts to follow soon.
