Apologies for not updating the blog for such a long time 🙁 Work on the house has been progressing well and after a long 6 months of work the new guest suite is now finished!!! We are really pleased with it and was well worth all the hard work (on Phil’s part). It was recently christened when Mike & Dean visited and both guest rooms were tried out and given the thumbs up.
Our next job after our friends visit was to redecorate our own living quarters and I’m happy to say that our bedroom, bathroom & lounge are all now freshly decorated and looking good. The log burner has been given a good sweep out and polish so fingers crossed this winter we won’t be suffering with smoke billowing out into the lounge everytime the door is opened.
As usual the summer has arrived with hot weather and the village is currently getting prepared to kick off with the annual summer fiesta this Thursday evening and it will go on till Sunday night. The office is ready for Ginger to escape to and hide from the noise of the rockets, fireworks and marching bands. Peace will return by Monday.
Work has now started on the final part of the house on the top floor to create the last bedroom & ensuite and access to the guest terrace (stairs are there but it’s more a building site at the moment). Fingers crossed and if all goes well we might have it finished by the Spring and be ready to start receiving paying guests. The new rules for renting out property/rooms will be made available later in the year so we’ll see what we need to do to get registered. In the meantime we’ll crack on with the work.
Hope you all enjoy your summer whatever you are up to and hopefully my next post will be a little sooner – probably Christmas!
