|Galley. The drawers are NOT blue!|
Climate has dominated the news in Britain this winter and we see pictures of flooding down south. I am convinced Atlantis is in formation. A boat does seem a safe choice. Winter in the East Midlands has been mild and I believe the rain has mainly fallen at night. The local rivers are running high but not to the levels I recall seeing last year. As far as snow and ice, touch wood and uncross legs, nada (=nothing in English). Wind, yes strong winds have blown and there is a bit of firewood around.
I am fortunate that I have been called back to the outside working world to annoy other people and get paid for it. Although it takes me away from DB fit out, Chris is doing a wonderful job. The electricity is connected,12v and 240v, and the gas connection is ready to fit to a cooker of our choice when we choose it! The plumbing is in place and we are days away from filling the water tank! We have bought a smoke detector that doesn't react to burnt toast and a CO2 detector-life-saver to warn us of leaky gas or solid fuel fire gremlins. Back to the electrics, I am yet to be convinced that a 3kw inverter is going to be a goldmine of energy but my Yorkshire man lights up when we discuss its potential.
Our bathroom is taking stock of goodies from IKEA. We've even got the full length mirror door on a bathroom cupboard. Well hope is eternal that one will appear as one remembers oneself and it hasn't been often that we've been able to view a full height 'selfie'!

The ceilings are starting to look closer to a top coat with the halogen spotlight turned off and I am determined to get a finished coat on the bedroom and bathroom ceilings within the next week! We have got into a spot of colour on the cabin walls, in the latter mentioned rooms, that is reminiscent of former days in Portugal. We've got lots of ideas and plans as we turn DolcieBlue into our living home.
