So today I am pulling on my big girl trousers and getting a grip. Well sort of, still a bit down about work, I've got a lot of vacant days and trying to get work is tough.
We are however off on our holidays soon though so the end is in sight. We are lucky enough that James' sister wants a week of peace so she is going to live at ours, sit in the sun (or more likely shelter in the front room) and read and relax and more importantly feed the chickens and water the veg. Not to mention stop burglars!
We spent a few hours yesterday with the kids as a family in the local national trust house Brockhampton. They've opened up more of the house since we last went and it is beautiful, the garden is my inspiration for the future. It did us all good to spend time away from the house and cheer up a wee bit.
So here's some pictures of the progress on the house, which has come on leaps and bounds this week.
Thanks for all the love, as always the support of our friends is invaluable.
