The coil for the heat pump is now in, and we have a lovely canvas for the vegetable garden, so two birds with one stone. There was a bit of a glitch with the heating system - breakdown in communication between the plumber and the heating engineers, but I think / hope it's sorted out now. Worst bit was the water leaking on to the kitchen floor - we've been really trying to get it dried out, since the debacle with the non-setting screed knocked us back a fortnight. So we're not sure when the heating will be on now, so that's a bit of a pest.

However, the tiler was here and almost finished the bathroom. We need another box of tiles and I agreed to seal the slate floor. Must do that tomorrow, actually.

The builders should be here to put in the new woodburning stove this week, along with the Ames taper. We've ordered some sample pots of Farrow and Ball paint for the hallway and the livingroom - we can't afford F&B but if we like the colours, we'll have them mixed.

Soooo looking forward to getting into the house now.
