Fitted the sink in the shower room - The poor sink sat around for 9 months before actually getting fitted, we are bad at things like that. (note to self: must do better)
|This is an old photo, we have a huge mirror above it now too.|
Tidied the garden - we got rid of a stack of pallets, loads of old degraded carpet and buckets full of rubbish we dug up. We've still got a ways to go, but we're on the right track.
Finished that Rubble wall in the livingroom- We didn't know where to start with this wall, but we knew the look we wanted to finish with. We figured it out #highfives
|One day, I will get a decent photo of this wall.... not today, but one day...|
Decluttered via ebay, freecycle and charity - We cleared a scaelextric set, some posh baby clothes, a fancy dress I would never wear again, a window, an old playstation, a load of crockery, books, CDs, gosh, tonnes of stuff. We still have a few boxes full to get rid of but most of it is gone.
Plastered the living-room and stairwell (well most of it)
Lime plastering in the kitchen - still a way to go, but it does look like the walls are connected to each other now, so thats a good start. You can see how we got started on the walls in this post
Renovated a 100 year old treadle sewing machine - this was an unexpected gift from my sister, and I love it sooooo much. everytime I talk about her I want to go and randomly sew something, I don't care what, I just love the rythmn of the treadle.
Fitted some downstairs radiators - one of those jobs that need done 'before winter' and ended up doing it in December...oops
Finished the hearth - again, it took a year to get around to doing it... but it is now done.
Got fully immersed in olympic and paralympic fever - We loved it, we went to see the flame, watched about 6 weeks of sport on TV, then we went to see the winners parade in Glasgow - and we cheered them all on every step of the way. I wish we had managed to get to one of the events but sadly it wasn't to be. Maybe when the commonwealth games come to Glasgow next year.

These are just my favourites, 2012 was a busy year for us and we got loads done. Here's hoping 2013 will be just as busy and just a tad more productive... it would be really nice to get a bunch of things ticked off the to-do list this year.
