The woodburner is in situ, and Mr Millport Breaks and I are thoroughly enjoying the warmth as we continue to redecorate.
Preparation is key, Mr MB always tells me, so while I’d much rather be choosing the paint colour, or hanging the curtains, I’m busy sanding woodwork every weekend, oh frabjous joy.
He’s busy papering- first an insulating paper, then a lining paper- nearly finished this bit! We think it will make the flat cosier , and less prone to condensation in corners.
While we stripped off the old paper, we came across some lovely old 30’s frieze along the top of the wall. This room was originally the kitchen, with a bed reccess for the maid probably!
We’ve taken lots of breaks for coffee ,soup, and giant breakfasts , in the Dancing Midge cafe, and also for a bit of foraging for kindling wood along the beach.
We will be taking a short break over Xmas, but will be continuing with the refit as soon as the festivities are over, and we will soon be turning our attention to the new kitchen…
