House Renovations part 2

Sew the floor sanding is going really well. After 2 shreddded sheets and one not sheredded, the bloke is using the last 40 grit we got from the hire shop. It is  coming up nicely. Diagonal passes are done, and he’s doing along the grain now. Cannot wait to start painting next week if this finishes well!

House Renovations

Sew, as our quest to make our house of bricks and mortar into a home this is the weekend where the living room will become liveable again. The plastering has been done and the floorboards laid. It going to be a messy, dusty and noisy 2 days.

The bloke rented a sander and edge sander after I complained and said this is not a job to be done by hand… Let’s see how this goes.

This is a small part by the front door. I wanted our sofa back, that’s what’s on the right of the picture. All these boards have been treated, rough sawn and the wood is Scandinavian Larch.

These are all new treated boards in the front bedroom. The bloke finished this last night and I’m so proud of him. X

Lavender Fields

Lavender Fields

Sew today, as we were both off for the summer holidays my Mum and I decided to do stuff.

I’d heard that there was a lavender field near us last year during the winter, not so good to see in the cold (plus it’s closed). I told my Mum that we should go but she thought it was too far away. I’d heard that in my area, back in the day, it was full of lavender fields; there are a couple of streets named Lavender Road and Lavender Gardens, so knew this too be true. Make a long story short, we went. It’s a 30 minute drive from where we live and it was a beautiful sunny day.

 

It was only £1 to enter, which helps them to maintain the gardens from  April to October. The smell was amazing. A huge field of lavender bushes that had a heap of bees in them. When we were away from the crowds we could hear the faint buzz of the bees. I tried to get a photo and almost succeeded.  Tell me if you see them or not…

Major update

I have been very slack for the last few months. The bf has been promising to promote this blog as I have no idea how to do it which is no very motivating.  But none the less, I have been crafting, making and travelling to make heaps more posts so stay tuned.

P.S. School holidays have started so I can do loads of stuff I mean to do during ‘regular’ weeks.
