My new bed arrived this morning and the guys assembled it for me. It looks lovely in the room and is the perfect size, I'm so glad I went for the four foot option. We went back an hour ago to check on things and I managed to stash all those white storage bags in the spaces under the bed with a little bit of room to spare.
The most exciting thing today was the delivery of the kitchen. Currently some of it is stacked in the living room in the exact space the sofa will be sat by tomorrow night ... hopefully!!

I don't think much has changed in the annexe over the past couple of weeks, but everywhere is a bit cleaner, the curtain poles are all up and the wardrobe was assembled. Alan managed to unbox the boxed-in toilet long enough to be able to replace the old toilet seat and then reassemble the boxing in, so that is much better now.
Everywhere seems lighter and brighter and since this photo was taken my old shop fitting bookcase is now in the living room, stood at the end of the sideboard ... there should even be books on it by the middle of next week ... a house is not a home until the books are unpacked in my opinion 📚😀
... and the next day the Smeg was in place.
The sofa and bed are both arriving next Tuesday now, so hopefully I will be well enough to hang around at the house until they arrive, the plan is to be stacking books on the bookcase while I wait.
And then another couple of days. The beauty of sowing seeds late is that they romp away, now I just need the sunshine to come back so that they can go outside, where all good Courgettes plants live.
Yay ... homegrown vegetables 🤞

Just popping on extremely briefly as I am about to run out of charge in my laptop, mostly to thank those of you who have, for the comments and emails enquiring about my back. OUCH is all I have to say about my back ... or words slightly more offensive along with some deep groans.
I am really out of action at the moment and trying desperately to 'get back to normal' in any way that I can. With this in mind we called to the house this morning to take some measurements for curtains and then went onto Dunelm to get Alan some curtains. His choice of colours are his and his alone ... and that is all I am saying on the matter. Although I did after some slight persuasion encourage him to buy some really beautifully patterned curtains with touches of green and purple in them instead of the plain purple ones he was going to buy to go in his purple and white room.
I can cope with being in the car on the motorway, it's mostly lovely and smooth even with Alan driving (!!) but the potholes in the roads of this bloody town are to be felt to be believed, ironically it was the subject of discussion on the local Facebook page yesterday with the road we have to use to get to the new house being cited as one of the worst in the area .... trust my luck.

The fence between us and next door is finished, and it's looking really good too as this photo taken from the first floor window shows.
