Well I have finally caught up. Have been snapping daily whilst away but no wifi.
Then I came home to chaos in my craft room as it had been decorated by Simon (the decorator) whilst I was away! He actually finished the downstairs and hall on the Wednesday but stayed on 2 days to finish the week doing other decorating round the house which is wonderful. no carpet until April 14th. The 3 piece hasn't arrived from warehouse to the shop yet :( and no curtains made yet either!!
