Oops - where did November go?


Time really does fly when you’re having fun (and when you’re trying to meet a deadline…) Now somehow it’s almost Christmas! The beehive is almost complete - it just needs a few coats of Watco on the outside and then the finishing bits that aren’t supposed to get oily added on. And then it will be time for bees. Which I admit to being somewhat nervous about - and they’ll know, I’m sure of it. Hopefully the welcome mat of cherry blossoms will be out and they’ll be so glad to call Short Meadow home that they won’t care.

I’ve started painting upstairs - in the hopes that I can live up there soon. Whitewashing is really a messy business but it does look good! It looks like I will have to forego underfloor heating for now - which is a disappointment but does mean I can probably get the floors done sooner and possibly do them myself… famous last words but I do like a challenge.

I will resolve to post on a more regular basis in 2019!
