It’s Finished!

Well actually no it’s not, but it is almost finished…

All the flooring is down in the lounge and the extension, the fascias and skirtings are all just about done and we’re just about at the point where we can draw up the snagging list. According to the blog the started around the end of March so we’ve gone from breaking the ground to snagging in about eight weeks – which is not bad, but we’ll reserve final judgement until the snagging is all fixed. I’ll take few pictures of the current state of play and post them to flickr later today.

You don’t realise just how much it takes over your life, until you spot its nearly a month and half since we last updated the blog – still its not all been chaos and dust over the last few weeks (although it does sometimes feel that way). We managed to fit in Jim and Clare’s wedding in Cambridge last weekend (which was fab) as well as visiting Irene & Vera, Ann & Brian, Graham & Rachel and Mark & Jack) and Matthew & Abigail (and Mark & Adam) en route. We almost managed to visit Laura & Andy on the way back as well, but that proved one visit too far!

The weekend before was Jim’s stag do in Barcelona which was also one to remember, although certain parts are still a bit of a blur – I think I’m still catching up on sleep, its a good job I’d booked the week between the stag do and the wedding off work or I don’t think we’d have made it.

We’ve got a home visit from Megan’s teacher this week (good job that some sanity has been restore to the downstairs so she’ll have somewhere to sit!), so that she’ll have a chance to meet her before she starts school in August. We all get the chance to visit the school next week, but Megan’s already spending the odd day at nursery actually in the school building – so she’s not phased by it all.
