Waiting has its benefits...

I think it's fair to say that for the past couple of months I haven't been my usual, "chipper" self.

Not sad or depressed. Nothing that extreme, just not my usual self.

But I have to admit I'm feeling a lot better and it's partly due to me getting a (part-time) job and also partly due to us deciding to, and acting on, getting Number 10  FINALLY FINISHED ! ! ! !

I blogged back in 2010, that some changes were in the wind as far as the study was concerned and now those changes, with a few tweaks, are happening. NOW!

The study window is being removed and a smaller window installed, which will give us more wall space in the study and give me a better work space for my new job.

The back door, which is near the laundry/storage room is also being moved. Out.

At the moment we hardly ever use the back door and instead walk through the dining room to get outside. We're hoping this will change all that.

Originally we planned to put a floor to ceiling cupboard here to accommodate the vacuum cleaner and ironing board and all the stuff that usually takes up residence in the laundry, but we've changed our minds. We thought it might make it too "closed in" and poky so instead, we'll place a low cupboard along the wall and a nice basket (or something) to hold the dirty laundry

Oh I'm so hoping this works out OK.

I'll post more pictures as work continues and I can successfully get my photos into the computer and resize them


  1. Renovations are always so exciting and great for getting you feeling motivated :) Can't wait to see yours progress... x

    1. You're right Amanda, I am motivated now, but that motivation has been lacking in the past few months

  2. It is always exciting to see progress especially when it feels like you have been planning forever. xx

    1. Nellie, I feel like I have been planning this for years. Oh wait. I have! lol
