Things are moving along here. We should have the first draft drawings of the house alterations this weekend, then we can sort out the insulation and get the SAP rating. Dan's been researching potential installers for the heat pump and the PV system.

I don't think the estate agent's particulars had very accurate room dimensions, from the mutterings of the architect. I know they always put a disclaimer on, and now I know why. We planned to move the bathroom into the smallest bedroom, but it looks like we might have to include part of the original bathroom as well, to give us enough room for a bath and large shower. For cost reasons, we had hoped to avoid this and just keep the former bathroom as a store cupboard but we need a decent sized bathroom.

I've given up thinking about floors and tiles - we'll have plenty of time once we get the keys, when we can get a proper "feel" for the house.

Normally, I'd be spring cleaning but I've decided to leave it until we clear the house. I quite enjoy it - and you can certainly see where you've been when you clean here! - but not enough to do it twice. If it stays nice, I'll get the curtains down, cleaned and stored away.

I'm doing little things - like clearing out the study, running down the freezer and tidying cupboards - but I can't wait for the 14th May.
