|Before at Donnas house|
Griff and I have four daughters between us and his youngest one Donna, gave my youngest one Vickie a playhouse for the garden.
Donnas' children no longer use it as they are growing up, and of course Vickie has her Grand daughter ... who is three year old Isabella.
Last week Griff took it all down from Donnas and transported it into Vickies garden.
Over the weekend while I have been on C&C she has been busy adding undercoat to all the parts.
She chose a lovely green and white and on Monday Griff and I went round to help her paint it all and hopefully make a start to put the house back together in her garden.
Isabella knows nothing about this playhouse and Vickie wants it all finished for the weekend when she will have her over to stay.
We have been so excited about getting this done we are worse than kids. You'd think we where going to live in it !!
Once the platform was built, and placed in the position where it needed to be, the walls are starting to go in.
The tree in next doors garden had to have a serious haircut to accommodate the roof height
But work went on at a steady pace ... mixed with regular brew stops.
But we are so pleased that we have got so much work done and thank fully the rain held off
The ladder is now safely in place and it is as steady as a rock ... and very heavy.
But now it is decoration time. Yaay !!
Griff thinks we are going overboard with the things that have been bought for the house .... we said he's not female and he's not three so what would he know
|After at Vickies House|
And a "Welcome" sign at the front of the house.
We have added in two Dragonflies, a Butterfly and some bunting along the edge of the platform and some more bunting to go inside.
It has bright pink flower boxes on the fence with flowers planted in them and her little car is in the "Garage" under the house.
Under the house and the play area has to be finished yet with some rubber chips to keep if soft, safe and clean.
And today Vickie is going to add in a little fence around the edges where the rubber chips will be.
On Saturday we are going to be waiting for Isabella to arrive and Griff will be filming one little girls reaction to this wonderful house that her Nana Vickie has created for her ... and I can't wait
Many many thanks to Donna for letting Vickie have this house ... but now Donna likes the changes so much ... she wants it back !!
More tomorrow ...
