I know we've been quiet this last while but there has been steady progress. .
The entire bathroom floor was a tad rotten (a stiff brush could remove a joist) and the floor was very patchy so that's been replaced with some lovely thick 140x28mm boards throughout
The toilet is in and fitted with its old high cistern pull chain flush (although off again for painting) .
We have windows!!! Yes 3 new windows, the kitchen , our bedroom and the big pantry. What a difference they make too! Definitely worth the money for the sliding sash it's just looks fantastic
@hantravelssolo bought a desk from some lovely couple in Alford and then left me to go pick it up, but then she redeemed herself by getting a few coats of colour on the old bath a few days later
Good bit of help this week from @jules_1707 coming and filling all the holes and tidying our mess of a house to make it feel homely again, the. @karynbrown_ and @tomstarkey_ this weekend rebuilding parts and getting the first coats of paint on the walls, as well as emptying a few bottles of prosecco!
Project 101 - Seascape Photography. Made the crazy decision to shoot during #stormali which hit the northeast coast recently. It took 3 hours to get one shot, attacked by sand storms, heavy winds, sea spray and the odd flying umbrella ☂️
The next island was Lismore. It was the day before Storm Ali and while the morning crossing on the dinky ferry was flat as a pancake, the return journey was rather more entertaining especially in such a teeny boat 😆
We walked in the pouring rain up to the heritage centre where we ate the first of many excellent slices of island cake and discovered the work of the wonderful @gillybridle ❤️
We wanted to bring some home but didn’t want to risk spoiling it in our rucksacks in the rain so we bought @justacard and promised to buy some more when we got home.
Thank goodness for the internet 🤩
We saw seals on the other side of the island, saw the first of many rainbows and saw a very busy sheepdog at work.
I can’t wait to go back ❤️ #lismore#portappin#lynnoflorn#lochlinnhe#scottishislands#takemeback#alltherain#stormali
Yikes I'm nervous flyer as it is. @Regran_ed from @aviationgoals - Nerve-racking moments for many people who traveled to the UK last week.
Here we see an Air France Airbus A319 struggling to climb away in the go-around due to the strong tail and crosswinds!😱 Tag Your Friends! #StormAli .

Today was a fulfilling day. I wrote my first poem in Norwegian, for my gallery ‘I Fjellene’ and I finished editing all 858 photos for my first major commissioned project! So excited to start telling stories with my words and pictures.
