It's all suddenly feeling very, very real!

Windows have been cleaned inside and out, we can't find another square inch to paint, the place is looking rubble- and plaster-free, and today a massive step forward - the carpets arrived! Garry got here at about noon, and made light work of three bedrooms, a bathroom, a dining room, a hall and a lobby - done by 1600. Nice going!

The dining room before....

....and after! Thanks Garry!

And equally significantly, our excellent sparky Zaz completed his work with the woodshed and rear external light - all done and dusted. Really massive milestones achieved - it really is ready to start feeling like home now.

Thanks, Zaz!

On the biodiversity front, we've added Chorthippus brunneus (Field Grasshopper), and lots of plants - Redshank, Scentless Mayweed, Field Madder and Black Nightshade. The Buzzards have (we think) two flying youngsters, there are Emperors and Brown Hawkers buzzing about, and Julia saw a Roe Deer in broad daylight in the lane. Also a definite whiff of autumn - lots of Phylloscs on the move through the hedges, and a juvvie Redstart down the lane earlier this week....
