Congratulations and great celebrations on the birth of the new royal prince. We have our own new arrival – our first great-nephew, Harry Joseph, born an hour after Baby Cambridge, a very big baby indeed at 9 lb 6 oz! He didn’t mess about either, but decided to make an appearance a full hour before the midwife, being delivered by his own dad on the sitting room carpet!

Not much change on my new ARTHaven since last week – a second coat of sealant on the work surface, and I have finished painting the shabby chic shelving unit which is now ready to put up. The room is nearly finished now – a large shelf still to go up on the wall where my free-standing storage will be, and the electrics to connect up, and some lighting.

Lots of other work going on in the rest of the house – please see my other blog posts to keep up with the progress.

I am typing this just before midnight on Tues. evening as I am hoping to go over to the new house early tomorrow morning – Paul is picking up the bath from our garage and taking it over, and if there’s room in his van I will go with him, or my hubby says he’ll take me. I may amend this later if there’s more to report.

Meantime, happy WOYWW everybody. I probably won’t get a number from Julia until later on Wednesday unless she posts before I go out, but hopefully someone will pop in before then!
