Voices that whisper, dark deep despair turned 6 today!
Soon To Be Back To Life and main point of staying in touch with people and my life’s ongoing twists and turns for hopefully a better 6 years ahead, which will mean not being stuck in hospital and able to have energy to update here, not just to catch up on what has changed but to then continue to have things to post, share, blog about!!!
A very simple before and after. The windowsills in all the rooms were tiled, so cold and drab looking, a simple bit of wood as you can see here made all the difference we repeated this in all the but bathroom and Kitchen as the kitchen.

even a simple thing like putting the blinds up which was as much for security as to get them out the way and make more building/mess making space, anyway it made a huge difference and started to make the place feel warm.
Note it was icy cold, the only heat at this time was one little electric plug in heater in the kitchen as the old storage heaters had been removed and the new heating system would turn out to be one of the last things fitted.
the 3rd step seemed to be to destroy the house even more, as well hammed and smashed walls to rewire the lights and plugs, we lowered the lighting switches and raised and tripled the amount of electrical sockets, it would all make living much easier, however for a while it was rather sad watching the place look worse rather than better. Thing about doing it all now was that all the wires would disappear as the new floor would eventually be laid and raised two inches with extra insulation. I learnt a lot about wiring and plastering during this stage of the process and also that a simple wire clothes hook is a very useful DIY tool!
