I think my Penguin mugs collection is getting slightly out of hand, but I do love them. They seem to bring out a few more titles every couple of years. The only colour we haven't got is the classic orange - I'll have to put one on my Christmas list.
I've found a more permanent home for the garage sign I prised off the front of the house before the builders arrived - above the door in the downstairs loo (which was, like the small sitting room, carved out of the former garage.) I did have it in a frame above my desk but it was too heavy for it and going wonky!
Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone! Good luck with the roof MaryPoppins - let's hope the Indian summer lasts a bit longer. I'd love to make my own curtains Lavender but I am a complete butter fingers with a needle and thread. I was always the girl in needlework at school who somehow managed to wrap both sewing machine and self in a big tangle of thread. I did manage to make a skirt once ( from one of those Simple patterns) but by that point the rest of the girls in my class had moved on to designing couture or something...
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.
Our architect recently commissioned photographer Joel Knight to take some photos of the Worst House in its finished state. Have a look on his website at joelknightphotography (The Worst House is in a couple of pictures on his Architectural page under 'extensions'.)
You can also see some very scary photos of the Worst House under construction on our architect's site -architecture wk. (The Worst House is under selected projects/residential/Morley Road.)
And photographer Carl Pendle took some pictures of the Worst House in January for Real Homes Magazine - watch this space...
