The bungalow was built with a double garage and the
previous owners used one garage to extend the front main bedroom, this
work was done about 6 years ago. So I have a nice big bedroom/craftroom
and en-suite shower room at the front of the house while the really good
size living/dining room is at the back away from the road. The kitchen
and bathroom are also at the front with the other two bedrooms at the
back looking onto the garden. I've got used to not having a door to outside from the kitchen so may not bother to have one put in. With no fires to fetch wood etc for I won't need to pop in and out quite as often in winter so just having the patio doors into the back garden from the living room will probably suffice. I'm loving having the patio doors open all day - something that's never happened before because both at the smallholding and at Clay Cottage the doors opened into a conservatory which just made the rooms too hot.
It was another lovely hot sunny day yesterday - now we are due thunderstorms of course (someone said an English summer is 3 fine days and a thunderstorm) and a bit more unsettled for a while. More good tennis on TV yesterday, with Cam Norrie and Jack Draper both getting through to the quarter finals.....and due to play each other, so we are assured of a Brit in the semis. I went swimming but found I had no energy so only did 25 minutes, that was enough.
