The renovation monster still has its jaws firmly clamped around our evenings and weekends, but the house is slowly coming together.
Eagle-eyed viewers will notice that tiles still need to be grouted, walls need to be painted, pictures hung and the building detritus that seems to have taken root in one corner of the room needs to be removed. But today we finally got to hang the lovely herb container I brought from Bristol Ikea and filled it with bunches of fragrant coriander and mint from the farmer's market. When I go downstairs shortly to make a Thai seafood curry, I will snip off chunks to throw into the wok. Isn't it nice when a plan comes together?
