Week 26

Yes, it is a significant week, 6 months we’ve had this house!  Looking back we’ve done a lot but at the same time I’d hoped to be further along by now. Half a year and still living in mess. JM says we're a tenth of the way through our 5 year plan...

The drywalling has begun! We started in the main bath and have done the bath alcove. We’ve also pretty much finished the little washroom too.


We installed a ceiling fan in the washroom and have marked the position for pot lights, we’re now waiting for the electrician to come and get those in.

The shower pan has finally made it here so we can now get that installed and plumbed in.
The lawnmower has been given a test drive, the pool cover is finally clear of water and the warm weather is just around the corner, life is good.


Wildlife still abounds including a black squirrel and blue jays which haven’t visited before. Kaiya also frightened a poor raccoon, she must have chased it up a tree because she was at the bottom barking at it and the poor thing looked scared to death! While fitting the bathroom fan in the attic we had a bit of a look around and where there is some bat poop on the insulation, we looked up and there they were, a little family of bats hanging from the ceiling! I think we counted 7 but it was hard to tell since they were mainly huddled together (don't tell Shabana!). Time to get some bat boxes..

We’ve also had our first signs of flowers, a single daffodil is open, along with a couple of grape hyacinths and a whole bunch of violas dotted around. Finally feeling like spring J
