I am so excited as I am typing this blog post, my visitors are on the ferry. Not long to wait now. I have spent the day baking, making the beds up and getting everything ready warm and welcoming for them. There is a quiche, potato salad, fillet of pork with apricot and ginger stuffing covered in bacon, roast chicken, fruit cake, ginger cake and mixed seed bread all ready. Mickey has had a wash and brush up and is casually waiting in his new bed.
Flowers always make a home feel welcoming so we do have a few.
My little stool has had a makeover. I use it in the kitchen as I am only 4' 11" so the wall cupboards are always a challenge. Yellow chalk paint was used and then I used some of my favourite stamps to complete the look. A lovely makeover.
Yesterday was a day for deliveries. The flooring was delivered, it will be such a thrill to get rid of the old blue lino that is down right now. All the material needed for one of the outbuildings was also delivered and finally the winter logs. We are blessed living in such a lovely community village, friends and neighbours came around today to help store it away.
Another little project was finished for the outer vestibule, using some of the cladding left over.
There was a delay on the road today as some of the sheep went for a wander.
See you soon.
