The first stroke!!
Val hovering spiders
The difference an hour makes!
The graffiti is all gone, Val and Daisy painted the store room while I stripped paint off the walls in the office.
It feels lovely to be there, so tranquil, no computer, no phone, no dye vats......

So far he has tried eating 1 ball , which I didn't notice until he squeaked and then I realised I had puppy/alpaca/silk sock wool spaggetti and 1 small wound skein which he dropped as soon as I told him to.
He is learning so quickly and I am proud to announce he now knows "sit", "no" and his name.
I am hopeing this is a good sign and I know we have a long way to go, but at 9 weeks its not bad.
The show room, where we will entertain all our customer/visitors
We have phone number for the farm, but no phone or connection.
We will be connected on the 2nd of october, had better buy a phone by then.
We are still haveing plumbing traumas, no one knows where the drains go to and as it was a prison property there don't seem to be plans. The prison seems to have made it up as they went along,
I counted 8 drain covers in our small piece of garden, you would think we would be able to work out which went where......
Fred modeling the dye room door, it has since been finished. This is also pre-windows.
We still have drain pipe problems and when it rains the doorway leaks.
Our delightful kitchen area. The hand sink has now been replaced with a kitchen sink and draining board, but apart from that it still looks much the same.
