Move in day set for end of Sept!!!!!!!!!
Ugly fireplace - SO gone. Nicer one, hopefully coming. Fingers crossed.
Walls getting painted, the man and I off tomorrow to pick light fixtures, front doors chosen, windows should go in next Mon or Tue and the plumber is doing toilets and gas tomorrow.
I won the big fat battle about window seats for youngest, assisted by youngest herself. You see, the contractor has two daughters, both young. The architect has no kids. Youngest came in, when bidden, to talk about window seats. The architect looked like thunder, HEFTY disapproval. Eventually the contractor asked Youngest why she wants window seats, she simply told him, 'cause they're cool.' He got it, and was totally onside from there. Architect never got it. No kids.
We are going to need 35 light fixtures! Can you believe that? Is that not crazy???? 35.
Man, I wanna move.
Then we went up to a friend's finca, bit of land, sort of like a cottage, but no lake. To watch the sunset. Was that ever perfect. My o my. Beautiful weather, a lovely group of people, snacks for dinner. Gotta love it when dinner is chips, some olives, a little chorixo and cheese, topped off with champagne or lemonade.
Oh, and fresh air, stars and sunsets.

Good dessert, that.
Now, where is that Ikea catalogue?
