Week 5 - build update

We're 5 weeks into the build now and it's going up a pace. 
It's so exciting to go off in a morning and come back at lunch time to see progress, then again at the end of the school day see another big change. 

I got to go up the scaffolding and had a birds eye view down on the space. It's going to be a lovely big, generous kitchen - my absolute dream.

I've been kitchen planning too - trying to marry together cohesively all the ideas that have been floating around in my head all these years. It will of course have elements of our previous kitchen/house as a lot of the free standing furniture will be going in there but it will, I hope, have a different overall feel. It will be 4 times the size for starters but it will be combining the dining room space of the old house too.

So on Monday the Chippies arrive and the floor joists go in
 and then the roof is going on - eek!

Because of the build, we have decided not to do Christmas proper. We really don't have the space, everything is in storage and with all the dust and mess, it really doesn't feel that festive. I've brought back a mini tree and I'll wear my Christmas jumper (to keep warm!!) and drink from my new festive mug (from Sainsburys) We're not hosting Christmas this year so I'll just have to save up my festive flair until next year and decorate in style.

Have a great weekend!
I have orders to prep and send out, pressies to wrap and a kitchen to finalise - all too exciting by far x
