Having replaced the bath with a walk in shower, completely refit the kitchen and created a 'third bed' room, it was the turn of the garden to have some attention. New turf for the lawn area, some new bushes for the road side wall and a new border of heather along by the window. All done with great attention to detail by our new friend, Colin
The back patio has seen additional planters set up,
20 strawberry plants prepared
and Marguerite Daisies for a bit of height viewed from the apple tree with tens of flowers itching to bloom. Our outside room, now that the sun is with us again.
A 'Paper Exchange' between Welsh and China artist, rice paper for the home artists to use and printed stuff for the Chinese artists to use....... in what ever way they wanted to.

Here, on the left, Dylan Thomas's poem, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, written in Chinese script. An interesting show.
What a mess I am making. But, but but.....one wall cupboard already up.
And started the tiling soon after.
Finishing touches still to do, but is now a functioning kitchen after a couple of weeks fun.
We found we had been too ambitious in the planned down-sizing of our kitchen ware, hence the additional cupboards where the breakfast table was meant to be. Bit tight it would have been for a table anyway, I guess
For completeness, the kitchen sink. Thank you B and Q.
And here she is, 30 years later and having a make-over. And what a ab fab job the guys are doing. FUA is going to come out of this refurb as a one unique motor car.
Of course, with the special delivery made, Morganeers always have something to chin-wag about.
The obligatory pose. Thanks to David, Martyn, Isabel, Vicki and daughter Daisy for a cracking day up north to enjoy thier brilliant hospitality. For certain, a day to be remembered. A planned return in the Autumn for another look see agreed.
