You've probably all seen this shot by now...
What I haven't shared is the other side of the hallway...
Not quite so pretty!
I decorated as far as I could without taking the radiator off. And it's been like that for almost a year!
With the new floor being laid very soon we finally got the plumber in to take off the radiator so I could finish the job.
Wahey! I took off the skirting too as that's being replaced along with the floor. It looks so much better. I was under the impression that having a radiator off meant we'd have to do without heat but the plumber just capped off the one radiator so I could work on the wall all weekend and not freeze. Genius!
I still need to paint the pipes...
Bit by bit the house is getting there. Slowly!
Despite not being able to put up a single Christmas decoration due to emptying half the downstairs for the flooring, Christmas spirit is well and truly here!
At the Friday Flea market I picked up this sweet vintage box with it's paper labels.
I'm not sure how I will utilise it yet but I love it.
And we went up the road to the garden centre to see Father Christmas arrive in style!
And Freddy is getting very excited!
This is the 'good' cat! He's only looking fed up as my husband wanted him to look at the camera when he wanted to sleep! He didn't mind the outfit at all. I think he has a future in modelling!
The 'bad' one would not tolerate such silliness.
