🏡DEVON COTTAGE 10 🏡April 2016

Blog 10 🏡  Decided to change the two rooms downstairs around, using the log burner when you’re not sitting in the room seemed daft so moved settees into that room, they are slightly big but fine for now….

Back out to garden as weather so good at the moment, thought next job would be to pull apart the chicken house as we are clearing that side of the garden……

image

BUT look what the chicken house was resting on ! Wheels …! Maybe you could move it around ?

image

Another shed to knock down was next to the original outside toilet ! (Will not be using that !) From this….

To this……… (that’s the toilet house !)

Problem is we’ve got to get rid of three huge piles of brambles, trees & wood now !! Now it’s lucky across the road lives a neighbour who has a tree cutting/garden clearance & shredder company so when we ready it can go ! Oh and that’s where we get our fresh eggs too ! Handy eh !

image

Garden looking much clearer on this side now, gained metres due to those nasty brambles, you can see in photo how much gained & where the original chicken house stood.

Well that’s April photos sorted & blogged, it’s May on Sunday so here’s to next blog……thank you for reading xx

🏡DEVON COTTAGE 9🏡 April 2016

Blog 9🏡 Easter holidays are here so Devon here we come !
A busy time:-  look at our new doors fitted last month, front & back, love them ! Make all the difference to heat & light, especially the back door.

Another difference to heat the house is the Aga !  It’s been serviced & cleaned thoroughly & now producing lovely heat after being switched on this week, especially in the kitchen, hopefully heating through the house eventually. Enjoying learning how to cook again ! Instant heat all the time, so cups of tea always ready ! Have put away the plug-in kettle, toaster & microwave not been used all weekend !  Used a toaster gadget on Aga this morning & cooked lovely toast, next step is to bake some bread to make toast !  It will go with the fresh eggs from a neighbour’s hens this morning ! We have the wood burner on tonight & not too bad with boiler turned right down, so ok as it was a cloudy, wet day too !

We have a great table/pool table which has been used alot !  We visited a Furniture Recycling shop locally & found some nice chairs for the table.

image

Another shop selling antiques & bric-a-brac had a kitchen table, the right size, but a dark colour so it will be a project later to strip the wood & stain it.  

image

Another addition is a washing machine, only you ladies will understand how important that is !  Have been here for the week so glad it’s sorted !

So until the next Blog…….thank you for reading x
