We have started work on our house to extend the upstairs attic room and convert it into a living area, a bedroom and a shower room.
It has been a huge upheaval and a marathon to find new homes for all that was in the upstairs room.
Removing the flat roof created a big problem as the day it was taken off the rain came down. The water was pouring in through the light sockets in the bathroom, bedroom (over the bed) and in the kitchen.
It eventually got sorted out and so far there's only been some drips throught the kitchen ceiling and the kitchen door frame.
I had always liked the idea of open plan, but this was taking it a bit too far!
In amongst the chaos of the work going on in and around our house the flowers are continuing to bloom - something to do with all that rain last week I think!
It's amazing they contine to grow as we are not really gardeners and don't do too much apart from keep the weeds down.
I have to say that the colours are rather fantastic and they help brighten up the mess all around the house at the moment!
