IMG_4744 - 2014-11-22 at 15-23-50Have I shown you the wardrobe finally in place in the bedroom? We had become quite tired of carting its 11 separate components around the house to keep it out of the way of the builders. It is never moving again – if we sell this house we’re calling it a fixture!

Last Saturday we held our first dinner party, which was quite a milestone.

There is still much to be done but it can wait until next year!

Season’s Greetings to all.

  1. Congrats on getting to your first dinner party! I cannot wait to do the same. The house is coming along nicely and I love how festive the living rooms looks. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and I’m looking forward to seeing what 2015 will bring for you! Nadine x

  2. is there a street party/wake for the funeral of King Richard III? is the town abuzz?
    I do hope the quiet blog just means all is well and gorgeous at Cat City.

  3. re the hampers: just informed, as I am, by TheLadyMagazine that F&M hampers are made and stencilled by PH Coate & Son, Stoke St.Gregory, Taunton, Somerset.
    englishwillowbaskets.co.uk and they work hard making willow beds for 3 years and it can all be ruined by flooding. Who knew? x x
