These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago but this is the first opportunity I've had to upload them onto the computer.
As you can see the 'office' structure has disappeared from the end of the room, and a hole has been knocked through.
Since these were taken all the rubbish has been cleared and I've begun painting the walls. The electrician has done something with the suspect strip lighting and progress has been made, despite a leaking roof which we weren't expecting! In fact we have achieved a great deal and it's beginning to take shape. All the space has been let although we won't be ready for a grand opening until probably mid-August.
Just before work began on the Cheese Room Pauley and I had another of our 'two-week' holidays - a trip to Wales from close of DH business on the Sunday until the Tuesday evening. Needless to say it rained most of the time, but as this was a buying trip rather than R&R it didn't matter too much. I was on a mission to source Welsh blankets for a customer and lots of other stock. It was a success and Trecastle Coaching Inn is to be recommended.
However, after a visit to Liz (Pretty Practicals) we stopped off to watch the Red Kite feeding frenzy. What amazing birds they are. It was a site not to be missed if you are every near Rhayader.
I took loads of photos but the birds were so swift I had difficulty in catching them - I ended up with quite a few empty sky pics!!!
And here is where we didn't stay!!! Almost as eerie as Psycho ! You might need to click on this one to see what a des res it is!
And this gorgeous clematis is climbing up the wall of Mum's house. It's a mass of flowers, the best it's been.
Another Cheese Room update soon, and maybe some photos of yet another fortnight's break!!! I've realised that these 2-nighters that we do are much nicer than a 'proper' holiday. It suits us both better to just be away for a few days at a time, and by treating these breaks as 'major' holidays we get much more out of them and enjoy our time away. Each moment is precious and not to be wasted. I wish we'd thought of doing this years ago. A couple of hours' drive from DH after shutting up shop on a Sunday afternoon will get us quite a distance, just in time for an evening meal. We then have a whole day on the Monday to see the sights, before meandering back the pretty way on the Tuesday, in time for me to open up on the Wednesday. Perfect!
