Finished, almost!

I've been busy! After much corner taping, sanding down and painting I've produced (in terms of decorating at least) the most finished room in the house - the guest room! Ok, there are still no floors or skirting board and the door frames need painting, but apart from that this is a finished room!
Oh, and the mirror has to be hung on the wall too! I need to buy a length of chain when I'm next in Inverness.
Sometimes when I get a bit despondent and think nothing is coming on and the house will never be finished I have to remind myself that this was our house a year ago almost to the day; still packed on a lorry! I took this photo (hopping up and down with excitement) on March 13th last year. The driver parked in a lay-by just before the turn into Letters while he studied the feasibility of maneuvering a huge lorry up a single track lane with passing places, that ends in a field with a not very large turning point
But he made it and so did the house!
Can one be proud of window sills? Well, I'm proud of these. I sanded down between coats and used a pad to apply the paint, and I think I've managed a superb egg shell finish, free of brush streaks, almost!

I've just heard the weather forecast and looked out of the window - I hate these dull, cloudy overcast days!

Well done, so much in a year. I am sure you and the guests don't look at the painting etc... but the marvellous views, which I love seeing photographs of, please keep them coming.

I love your sheep ornaments.

We have great Spring weather here for the time being!!

Love to you both, Phil & Jackie.

You have flying buttresses like us Ann, what happens muggins here bangs his head on them sometimes.
