Bye-bye builders!  
They arrived on the first of November, disappeared for several weeks during all the snow before Christmas (not to mention Christmas and New Year), came back and made a lot of mess. However, they have gone, and what's more, they tidied up after themselves!

It's a small extension to the diner area of the kitchen diner, which makes the room about 40% bigger. Big roof window, and French doors that the cats love. They sit there and watch everything going on in the garden.

And this is how the builders left it! Tidy builders! It's unbelievable! We had tidy electricians too, even when they took up all the carpets upstairs to lay their wires. *can't believe it* Moving everything out of my study wasn't fun, though...

Here's the snow that kept them away. I guess it's understandable...

And icicles like I haven't seen since I was a child!

That looks awesome.

Whoa with the snow, dam but those icicles look killer

thank you! Yes I had enough of snow very quickly, but the icicles were fab!

Yay for tidy builders! And yay for having more room! I can imagine that the cats love those doors (and admit it, that was of course one of the reasons why you had that extension built ;) )

And hey, we have the same cat door! Except ours is brown. Lol, and I just noticed we also have a red cat dish like that.

Yes, we did have the thing built especially for them. Hattie enjoyed all stages from foundation trenches to roofing. And that heap of sand the builders left around had some surprises in by the time they came back...

*lol* Are cat accessories the same all the world over.

They did great work! I have bought some paint and put the can in the extension. It hasn't applied itself to the wall yet, though...

It does! Himself has taken it over with his cello now, though.

The icicles are verrrry pretty. We don't get them like that often over here at all.

They did a lovely job! It's nice not to have them around anymore too. Hard to imagine anyone enjoying it as much as the cats, though. Hattie is extremely impressed.

Love your penguin! Adorable!

Yes, I look out of that window a lot. Especially since the leaves are starting to sprout. And we've got a lot of pretty primroses too.

Glad to hear your engineers have done a good job too! Is everything still working ok?

*does snow-going-away dance* No more snow, pleeeeeeeease! Had enough!
