This will probably be my last post . . .

. . . this side of Christmas, and may even be my last post before New Years Eve, as I've got various things I want to "talk" about, but its not the right time for expecting you lovely people out there to be interested, so some things are going on the back-burner until the new year.

A quick up-date on our dining room. As you can see, the walls are stripped. The new door into the conservatory is booked and will arrive in January, the plasterers are booked to come in after the door, Rog is going to finish the electrics and block up the fireplace, then take a break.



In the conservatory, the gooseberry plant and three raspberry plants that I bought are looking good, there is even a tiny green shoot at the base of one of the raspberry plants!




I'm looking forward to planting these out in the raised bed at the side of the house in spring.

In the mean time, I sincerely hope you have a wonderful Christmas - ours will be fairly quiet, just as we like it (we hope).

(I'll be continuing with 2012 Illustrated until the year is done).

A huge Thank You to all my followers, I look forward to seeing you all again soon. x x  x
