Friday Skywatch

The contents of the sitting room have been camping out in the dining room while we have waited for the chimney to be fixed. It's chaos in a small house when work needs doing. We've been in this state for weeks now.

This morning the sitting room was still sheeted up. A bank holiday weekend ahead and family arriving on the evening train! But the workmen came and EVENTUALLY the chimney lining was in place  and the wood burner reinstated.
By late afternoon we had our sitting room back,
with pictures hung and every little knick-knack washed and replaced.
Then it was time to drive to the station to wait for the London train, and to take a photo for Friday's Skywatch.
Wishing you all a very happy Bank Holiday.

  2. It is not fun to live in a home where construction is going on. We just went through three weeks of it and the dust and noise was awful. I understand your pain. Your house, though, cleaned up nicely.

    1. Oh, Maybe, I'm sorry you've been going through the same sort of disruption. Hope you are back in order now.

    1. The scaffolding is still up and blocking various windows but at least the house is our own once more. What a relief!

  6. A lovely weekend, Wendy, with plenty of talking, eating, a bit of girly shopping, lunch out, a walk and yet more talking. Lovely. Bank Holiday Monday, this is Blighty. What does it do? It tips down with rain!

  8. The mess was worth the trouble. Your room is so nice. Have fun with your company. (Thank goodness the work got done just in time for company; so rare!)

    1. I'll confess, Christa, that I had a bit of a strop with the firm fitting the chimney lining. The work was finished just in time, although it was a close run thing! It's great to have the house back to ourselves. However, over one month later the scaffolding is still in position! They've promised me it will be taken away tomorrow. (But I'm not holding my breath!)
