As you know, this house has been freezing cold ever since we moved in. We have lived under blankets and hot water bottles for months and my one goal of the year is to install the fire in the living room. The novelty of the house will soon wear off if we have to go through the bitter coldness for a second winter.
To try and make it a tiny bit warmer we had put films up over the windows to keep the cold out and while it didn’t look very pretty it seemed to help. It was therefore very exciting to come home the other day and see that The Boyfriend had made the bold decision to tear them down. With the blinds open I was reminded just how much I had liked the living room when we first looked round – over the last few months I have just started to see it as the coldest room EVER!
Once we replace the fire (and fireplace), put in some curtains and install a new, insulated carpet this room could actually be nice and cosy.
While I was taking the photos I realised I haven’t put any photos of the kitchen on here. It isn’t anything very exciting at the moment (and there is no storage what so ever) but it is more than adequate for now.
