Rest of house: amazing new fence by Tom and Phil making me want to garden. Need to knock down the brick pillars next.
We've also got a new bed and some snazzy bed linen:
Tom's dad is staying for a few days on his way back from his holiday. We were proper tourists on Sunday and went on a little boat trip from Lymington.
We also had our first roast dinner of the house, and rounded Sunday off with a pint in our new local, the Butchers Hook.

Tom's started giving everything a coat of cheap magnolia, to help make the polyfilla less absorbent. Next is carpentry to replace missing skirting and picture rail, the last bit of sanding, then a coat of the extra thick white paint.
Paint has been bought for the top coats.
Now thinking about bed buying, lighting, mattresses and furniture.

Thanks to Robin, Olivia and Dave for helping with this bit.
I've been going around making patch plaster repairs, and using Polyfilla to fill in rough patches. Tom bought me some posh Polyfilla One Fill. This is one of those times where paying for the brand name is worth it. Like using a light whipped icing, barely needs sanding if you're good at applying it. I do love plastering things.
Hopefully painting next week!
This weekend we're at Sandy's housewarming in Sheffield. We've done a 7k walk along the River Rivelin, and are sat around drinking champagne and eating tasty things.
Here he is sat on a chair in the middle of the River.
