Yes! We’ve finally got the conservatory sorted out. Up to now this has been a sort of dumping  area. Recycling stuff, tins of paint, building materials, all ended up here. Over the last few days we have had a big sort out. All the aforementioned are now in the newly tidied shed and the conservatory is at last how we want it. A useful,  usable space. A nice place to take a break or chill out in the Summer heat…hopefully!

That’s me faffing about at the end…under Lettie’s watchful eye…as always. As you can see we’ve even found a place for the desk here.

It’s the only place we could fit our big old American fridge. Not a modern reproduction but the real thing made in the US in 1957. We bought it in a second store when we first came back to Ireland in 1996. Someone loved it enough to bring it to Ireland with them.  I wonder if it was a returning emigrant or an American coming to live here? We shall never know but I often wonder.   Still works perfectly and a lot roomier than the new fridges.

Well it seems thats the house finished now! Time to get out there and get that garden sorted.
