7 Days To Go and Counting Down

cottage extension designers block
This will be the last time you will see my little cottage looking like this. In 7 days time the building work starts and our cottage will be over twice the size it is now. It's exciting, thrilling, and all those other words that make you want the loo.
Our lounge/kitchen will be 40 feet long and I am going to run up and down it all day every day. I have gotten through this last year by pretending I live in a luxury stone caravan and I can't wait until the day I can hang something long in a wardrobe. I have had my dresses in a cupboard for long enough.
I will post photos of the progress every Monday without fail, builders bums and all!

Good luck to you! I'd rather die than renovate!

Looking forward to living vicariously through you!

Keep plenty of wine on hand....

So great talking to you Monday! The cottage is going to be simply beautiful - remind yourself (and Harvey) of that when you're feeling impatient during the long build. : ) (And come for a break in Paris). xo

Do we HAVE to wait till Monday for the builder's bum?
Bonne chance or should I say what the French really say...Merde!
Tout va bien
I hope all goes well and exactly as you want it!

ooooh, I can't wait to see it. I do hope that you keep the carpet with the grass coming out of it, though. I loved that.
