This is how it's looking now.
It's still not finished. You'll see the fence has no palings, that's because we're planting a hedge there instead. That still has to go in, and I've also bought a little old wire table and chairs to go on the grass, which we will hopefully pick up this afternoon.
And in other news of progress, remember these eggs in the nest at my Dad's?
They've since hatched and the birds are about to leave the nest any day. I wonder how the bird is that was in the egg we dropped?
I have finally hired house cleaners, they start in two weeks and I don't feel any guilt (sort of). Clean, shiny floors, here we come!
