Escapism

Fleeing from this:




We did this:






The weather was warm.





But changeable.

Don't blame you for escaping - I bet the cats wished they could come with you and the dogs.

I'd have escaped too, especially to that lovely beach.

Dan said...

Going out is an excellent way to deal with a building site isn't it? When is it expected to be complete?

Wonderful pictures! The first one with the brolly sums British autumn beach weather beautifully. A lovely escape though and happy grins on the dogs.

Well, the bathroom looks like it's progressing, but 'the window'?? What happened?

rachel said...

The bathroom should (fingers crossed) be finished on Monday, all tiling complete, new lighting in place.

The utility room - well, I have no idea, but all I can think of just now is having a shower, so I don't really care about anything else!

The sitting room window? Just being replaced with an exact copy; this one fitted nowhere, having been altered and messed about with for many years; the wind howled through the gaps, and you could see daylight through one section of the frame.

I am contemplating bankruptcy.....

Oh Rachel, you have me chuckling again!
Perhaps you might find a few old pieces of clothing to dress with, have the dogs and the kitties look throughly miserable and join you on the church's steps...Someone is bound to take pity on all of you!
I loved the 'stroll' on the beach photos! Tell the dogs MacIntosh and I are very envious! (our beaches are just plain rocks and lots of barnacle and it hurts his paws)

rachel said...

Susan, it's a lifebuoy, complete with container and stand!

Where were you? Is that Blue Anchor? Love seeing the West Somerset Railway chuffing past. x

rachel said...

Yes, that was Blue Anchor. And a cup of tea in the Driftwood Cafe afterwards. Lovely!

I love that last photo - I think that's one to frame and put on the wall! Malcolm is enjoying the photos of your mayhem, as he doesn't have to do the work. We have actually bought a sample pot for the bathroom, but haven't yet worked up the energy to dab it on the wall - must knuckle down and get it done before Christmas .... we have been here for 5 years, and it's the only room we haven't done!
There was a slight pause there, as I had to chase next door's cat, which was creeping up on the birds!!

Running away was definitely the best plan.

Lesley said...

Oh I'm just not keeping up - but I feel I can't be blamed for that. So much happening - and all at once. And you thought the rendering and stove were difficult to live with! I'm so happy to see Tosca out and about and I hope the coughs are getting better. I'd suggest string round the waist of your coat, and a worn scarf around your neck . . . might help with the income? speak soon xxxxxxxx

June said...

Oh, the noise!
Just great that you could get out into the peace of the beach. The dogs love it . . . imagine all the smells!

mountainear said...

I'd be escaping too - what mayhem. Things going in are always a good sign though.

Another fan of your 'atmospheric' last picture here.

elizabethm said...

Love your photos and sorry to hear in your last lost about your gas nightmare. Hope all has settled down now

Gwen Buchanan said...

wow, those coastal pictures feel like home.. Hope the gas problem is not too difficult to fix... ...i'm loving your dedication and perseverance ... good luck.
