Happy New Year!  The first update of 2008.  Although there is plenty to update on the completed work in the interior of the house, instead I've decided to focus on something new that we're doing.

Kitchen - Part II - a new page added.  Granite worktops and hob fitted.

Thursday 4 October

Apologies for the massive delay since the last update!  There were some valid excuses - we moved into the new house 3 days after the last update and then didn't get broadband set up for at least 3 weeks.  However there are no good excuses for the last 2 weeks!  Anyway, there are a lot of updates to give, but for now all I've managed is the Kitchen page.  More will hopefully follow over the weekend.
