Work is continuing at a good pace. Yesterday, the boiler in the kitchen was taken away and the chimney stack came down (img.1), leaving us with no hot water, so we have to boil three or four kettles to do the dishes.

The guys finished stripping the wallpaper in the dining room ready to start plastering tomorrow (img.2). They have got the pipes ready for the new kitchen, and the new boiler should be fitted tomorrow or Saturday in the loft. Last, the old kitchen door is now blocked with a wooden frame (img.3 & 4).

Next week should be interesting as the bathroom is being pulled out on Monday, so God knows what we’re going to do. If you see one of us and we smell, you’ll know why!
