one is better than none
we ended up with one builder yesterday and today - as he was a billy no mates he agreed to let Stephen become his official right hand man
now, stephen is more than capable but has always felt reluctant to force himself on to the building team - nobody wants to work with the boss around ;)
after two exhausting days of really hard graft the house is coming along nicely - Stephen has really enjoyed his time as a labourer but was not overly keen on scaling the roof with only a thin batten to stop him from slipping!
tomorrow we have another builder coming over from Orkney so even more progress should be made - i am not posting pictures as the shape and structure have not really changed, hopefully next week i can show rooms that have all been boarded out - yay :)
i have enjoyed my two days of being a real girl again, clean jeans and a pretty top rather than my building clothes, and some actual sewing has been done
my mind has been full of these little critters for ages and it feels good to actually see them appear - cute, cute, cute!
i have lots more planned for Autumn and will start some Christmas sewing hopefully next week, lots of ideas and Christmas sketches have been done in my current favourite book........
all this fun creating and sewing stops this evening as first thing tomorrow i am back on site - attaching the battens to the other side of the house and cutting and laying the insulation......
also this week we had a special delivery from two of our very favourite little girls....
Molly and Daisy.... talulla says a BIG thank you for her present, she shared them with her two little sisters Bean and Mabel Moo, but brother ghillie was not allowed one as he would only have swallowed it whole and choked!!!!
also she would like it known that the doggy sticker was very quickly swiped from under her nose - she has no idea who the culprit is.....
hugs to you all lovely cupcakes - talulla loves a pressie x
