What stops a girl from blogging...

Christmas holidays dampen blogging spirit as one stays as far away from one's office (and internet connection) as possible, and Christmas here in Spain lasts until the 6th of January so I have been not blogging at all...
We have, however been working on the house and here is proof:

The sunshine men came and put electricity into our mechanical U.

So we have been doing this

with the help of a very good friend who also happens to be an electrician. We love our friends.

We also bought this lovely Portuguese marble basin for the bathroom. It was a great deal because it has slight slight slight chips on the outer rim which you won't see once I embed it in the very first ever piece of furniture made by ME! Out of scrap timber too I might add! Not quite finished yet but getting there. I think my furniture making gene is coming out. Thanks DAD!

There are so many little things to do. One of them is putting the neat inner frame on our windows which you can see here. This is a pretty good shot to give you an idea of the glass we used too.
Anyway, now you are up to date, and I am off to work.
More soon.
