This is my original blog for all our non-caravanning trips since 2009 and more recently posts about coming to terms with being single again having been widowed in 2018. And anything else too really!

My caravanning blog is (Get Your) Legs Down and all our trips in the caravan are there. My grog blog is The Ale Archive where I list every beer I’ve ever tried.

The Flat – Week Four

Another week, another visit to B & Q – or two! Progress continues and there are last seems to be light at the end of the tunnel – although that’s probably a Been & Queued lorry coming the other way….

The last of the plastic skirting board went down today, and very smart it looks too. The rest of the carpet is due Friday, then we can start moving the rest of our stuff in.

Most of the new light fittings are now up – some traditional, some more modern. The ones in the hall have a bit of a delay on them – because they are low voltage via a transformer I guess – and take up to five seconds to come on on from cold once the switch is flicked. Pewter effect switches and sockets are replacing the white plastic ones where visible.

Decorating continues throughout. Nearly two thirds of the hall is done – brilliant white as was on there before, but having little natural light it’s been fun getting even coverage. A coat rack, a picture and a couple of mirrors now adorn the walls.

Most ceilings are done and the lounge walls are looking good in a lovely soft apple white.

A fireplace – coal effect electric - and surround has been ordered and is due in a couple of weeks.
