I got to work - An old shirt is my work-wear, very handy if I need to quickly be clean enough to deal with 11 month old Teeny. The shirt fits over my regular clothes and the cuffs keep out the dust. Small, aged 8, was my helper and reportage photographer.
Busy family life in the house means we need to be able to work around everything without making too much mess - I wasn't able to clear much space to work in - this wasn't a huge problem as the job was quite small and a quick sweep and mop up after dealt with the mess, ready for a crawling baby again.
The biggest problem was retrieving the bit of plasterboard from behind the pile of wood in (what will be) the bathroom.
Finally, the big hole is covered.
The bricks on the left will be lime plastered up to the plasterboard - all part of blending new building with old walls while trying to retain the unique character of the house. The space on the right is under-stairs storage, still in need of finishing.
All the while, John was busying away in the kitchen looking after Teeny and whipping up this most amazing belated birthday cake.
Productive day, and chocolate cake
