I’m a terrible blogger at the moment, my little baby is taking all my time, but I don’t mind! We’ve added a couple of bits to the nursery which I need to photograph, and in the meantime, Barry’s organised someone to do the decking! Finally!
I mentioned the decking plans back in June, and the same plans apply, only instead of Barry doing it, we have a man who can. It turns out that he was £100 more than if we just bought the bits ourselves, and that is £100 well spent. The gentleman is coming for two days this week, and then we can laze in the summer mizzle.
This is the view from our back door at the moment, kind of uninspiring. The dandelions are the only flash of colour. Barry tore the shed down this weekend – the bits are being collected for firewood and the paving slabs keeping it straight have gone on (what else?) eBay!
We’re having decking down the right hand side, extending the patio to the left, and keeping some grass. I want to change the drab paving slabs for something nicer, but that may have to wait. The fence also needs to be a bit higher on the right hand side, otherwise we’d be sunbathing looking over at our neighbours below us, a little intrusive! We’re also going to stain everything dark.
I think – I hope – everything is going to look fabulous!
