The little pavement has had some random stones and paving slabs stuck on. The penny is there to remind everyone of how small these little houses are.
The pavement will be painted first, then have some sand and grass added. I'm getting more of a feel for how small stuff has to be, when I first began building them I kept making mistakes with the measurements. The blue paint is the surplus from painting round the windows and door, it has nothing to do with the exterior colour.
We very nearly had another crisis tonight, I noticed that the central heating hadn't come on - not what I needed! Nor could I reset it as the reset switch is bust, have been asking for it to be fixed for ages :-( So what to do, tried a pair of pliers, nope, so got all frustrated and booted the boiler and, it clicked into life :-) I'll still get it checked, and remind them that they promised me a new boiler ages ago.
I'm beginning to feel more like a human being, the last couple of days I've felt so tired, and that is in spite of having plenty of sleep. Not even been waking up during the night. I have to have the blood tests repeated next week, doc wants to check stuff, then I have to go talk to him about a referral to a psychologist. And there is a storm on its way, one which has a name... and? Not sure what the point is of giving it a name, and will we get it, yesterday they said we'd have rain all day so... yes of course it was dry and mild.
Petite Properties have also been very naughty and brought out a new kit... Winterberry Hall, even the name is pretty. But after much thought I'm sticking with buying Hedgerow Cottage as my next kit, it will be my Xmas pressie to me! Now I need a cuppa and think I'll go to bed.
