Ok, so things aren't quite at 90degrees just yet, they are getting straighter. The lovely sunshine today tempted us down into the garden and now the sheds are clear and usable again (ready for growing the summer veg!) and we found some old friends that can come out to play again.
Upstairs is also looking good, now we just need to buy some racking to finish off the linen cupboard. The Easter sales have also encouraged more spending and the final unit for our bedroom should arrive... In 4 weeks!
We now have lists per room and are trying to stay on top of the budget. Most rooms have curtains - waiting for a visit from Hilary's Blinds next week to help us work out how we can keep some of the sun out of the back of the house to protect the sofas and table, and hopefully a velux blind so we don't have to get up with the birds (even on weekends!).
Despite the long to do lists, just having one household to look after is already showing its benefits and now all the hard work in the garden can be rewarded with a beer now that we have a fridge... This time last year the coolbox from the other rented house never really kept them cool after a full day of grafting on what used to be a building site!).
