When we’re not working and running our business, we seem to spend a lot of time doing the jobs around the house that we can do ourselves. It would be lovely to have a limitless budget and get people in to do everything, but we don’t have such a budget and even if we did, it is nice to to stand back and admire your own handiwork.

With that in mind, we continue to chip away (not literally) at the window frames and shutters, the whitewashing of internal walls, and the painting of floors. It’s all taking much longer than we anticipated, as these things tend to do, but the house is slowly, but surely, transforming, from an empty, cold shell into a real, warm home. It’s also very therapeutic to find images to stick on our wish-list and think that one day, we might be able to incorporate some of these ideas…
