I'm already having a great week, first of all I'm on holiday, a whole week to do just whatever I want. The cheque arrived from the insurance company who have paid out for the water damage. I'm a bit disappointed with them because each stage of the claim has only moved on when I contacted them to find out what was happening. Why couldn't I be told to get a list of prices for everything that needed replacing on the day that I contacted them instead of 4 weeks later when I hadn't heard anything from them. Then again two weeks after faxing them the quote I had to e-mail to fond out if they had received the quote, before I got a reply to say they had received it and had put a cheque in the post that would arrive within the next four days. Anyway it's here now.
I can't wait to get crafting in there.
The new floor in my office/craft room was fitted by my lovely brother yesterday, it makes the room look huge. The units have arrived and the joiner is coming this evening to start fitting them. The electrician came last week and fitted all my extra sockets and new spotlights. The only thing I need to collect now is the roman blind I ordered, that I believe should arrive this week. So hopefully by the end of this week my lovely den will be complete. That just leaves me to redecorate the other spare room and replace everything that was damaged. No rush for that though, I can take my time.
I've spent most of the day in the garden tidying away all the debris from the winter, I love my garden and spend most of the summer out there.I even got the grass cut. It has the sun on it most of the day, so is the ideal place for breakfast and starts the day off just right.
Right now I'm in my office on a TV table with the window open that overlooks the garden. The sun is out and all is calm. This picture was taken last summer from the window that is going to be my office, so this is going to be my view.
