More Progress


We now have front lights and a house number! I will have to go and sit in the gutter across the road tonight, to take a photo of the place all lit up. I think I'm going to give 'Clark Griswold' (National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) a run for his money, in the exterior lighting department!

The lights are called 'Oceanside'.... sounds so coastal.... if you close your eyes, you can hear...the sea?..... oh no that's a train..... a little bit of seaside in the city!

Another view, from the other side of the fence (from my instant new best friend's garden)! Hi D!

'D' and I are taking the morning off and going out for coffee. As much as I love my house to bits, it's nice to leave it sometimes! Work can wait today....... I need some time out!
Have a great day!

    P.S. Loved your comment over @ The Hedge tonight. Yep, MOTH needs to keep in buttoned. He just escaped suspension @ the Tribunal - got a severe reprimand & a big fine.
