The wall heaters are all fitted and ready to go. We tried them out last night and they should be adequate although the amount of electricity they got through in a few hours was, well, interesting. I have to keep reminding myself that our gas bill will be virtually zero, given that it’s only the hob that uses it.

In progress is the loo. A cheap and cheerful cabinet is now on the wall and there is a new blind up at the window. A coat of paint on the walls, bog roll and towel holders to fit, then it’s done.

And that will be it. Nearly….
