Winter is always a busy time with many maintenance tasks and changes. This year as promised we renovated the bathroom completely. It was finished on schedule the week before the season started in March. I am very please with it having dispensed with the bath and fitted a spacious shower complete with grab rail for safety. Everything looks more modern and there is much more storage space in the bathroom. We also changed the bathroom door and our plan is to replace all the doors in the house as our next major venture. Have a look at the pictures.
i also bought a new cuddle chair,which I though would be larger but it's still a smart but of furniture and in the process met a very friendly and helpful supplier. I have masses of books in the house and reluctantly dispensed with some to make room for a super new stowaway table giving more options for eating. We moved one bedroom around, bought new lamps,cushions,dishes,towels to ensure all is smartened up for the year ahead. The garden seat was brought up from the garage and we were ready to go.
i am also planning to run a bespoke week at the end of September as a retreat week, which I will host. As my background is in social work and counselling and as Lewis is such a special and naturally healing environment it would be good to use the house for people looking to escape the pressures of a busy life. It has been my bolt hole for many years and proved a very therapeutic and restoring environment. More of this will follow on the website but I am open for business of anyone wishes to contact me to have a chat about my plans. They are flexible at the moment as i have a number of ideas of whet would work best but need to do some more research and this may involve trying different options. Delighted if people help me shape these weeks in this special place.
I have a Facebook page and am trying to be proactive on this to let visitors know everything happening locally so check it out . i will also give Instagram a go this year so it would be great to receive all your photographs.
