We are expecting more workmen next week as we have the outer doors replaced. It does sadden me to lose those beautiful old wooden doors, but the draughts they create are not conducive to keeping this old cottage warm. We have now had two Winters here and despite many attempts to stop the draughts we have had no success. Once the doors have been replaced we can then get on with replacing the floor in both the kitchen and the outer vestibule that we use as a utility room. There is also a big gap where the boiler was situated as we have had the new one placed outside. Shelving may provide the answer, time will tell.
Mickey has had a good grooming and looks quite handsome, sadly it doesn't last long.
We have bought some solar lights for the garden. Although not needed at this time of year we are hoping that it will help in the Winter months to light the paths. Let me take you on a little tour of the front garden. The pots are starting to take on some colour and are a delight.
The little lanterns make me smile, though some hidden weeds that I can now see in the photographs do not. Just when you think one area is done it all starts all over again. The never ending task of keeping the weeds and the garden under control.
Time once again is rushing by so I must finish and get ready for my aerobics class. I do thank you for your continued support, your emails and cards despite my lack of posts please know that you are in my heart.
See you soon.
