Ray decided to take the ceiling down in the back room/George's never room/Little Poppet's room to be, the bathroom and the little hallway... We need new insulation and soundproofing.

 I wasn't allowed in, the dust you see. So I made tea and sandwiches.

Little Poppet will have a small room but with a nice view of the garden.

It feels good to be doing watching Ray do something to make a place for a new life. We never got around to it for George. We thought we had time. We'll decorate in neutrals and I can add my own paintings to babyfy the room later. I have lots of unused small canvases. I will just have to decide on designs.

Our living room had similar, although less violent, treatment a couple of weeks ago... carpet! We got carpet instead of the attractive but cooooold varnished floorboards.

From this sickly peachy colour.

To delicious iced coffee and chocolate (wallpaper on just one wall)

It's great having a painter in the family and a landlord very willing to put his hands in his pockets!

PS I got the ticker on my blog. I couldn't wait until after the ultrasound. (18 days and counting...) Our Little Poppet deserves to be celebrated.
