Summer House extensions

When Keely & I moved into the Summer House after we were married, it was ideal for just the two of us – enough room to have friends stay over and still cosy for a loving couple.

Then #ourWinnie came along, and to accommodate her growing collection of clothes and Guide Dog Puppy School assignments we renovated her bedroom, which involved adding a study and dressing room. Luckily for me our good pal Alfie @AlfieLuvsCassie assisted in this work:

Alfie and I were really pleased with the end result, and so was #ourWinnie:

Now with the arrival of #ourChloePup it has been sternly pointed out to me that we again need to extend to incorporate a new bedroom for her. So I girded my loins and shut myself in my #manshed, throwing myself deep into drawing up plans, my creativity being helped along a little with the occasional baconbeer.

My pal Ruger @RugerBlue volunteered to assist in the renovations, which I was grateful to accept. Ruger is a pawsome mate from Kiwi Land, skilled in carpentry and owning his own tools and hard hat.

Once we had settled on a course of action (and supped a few more baconbeers) we started working.

Things were a bit of a mess for a while …

… and Nanny Jessie had a few suggestions …

… but finally we were finished, and #ourChloePup now has a bedroom of her own.

Little girls are precious gifts

wrapped in love serene;

their dresses tied with sashes,

their futures tied with dreams.

    Runs into #ourChloePup ‘s nursery with happy squeals of delight … grabs @ourWinniePup and does a dance of joy as we inspect the great workmanship of Papa and Ruger. *Whispers* think they deserve a 6 pack each of #BaconBeer tonight. Can feel @AngelKeely looking down on us with approval and can see her blowing a kiss to Thomas
    xxx’s with love and many thanks, Nanny Jessie

    Great job! (think at the next opportunity I will try some bacon beer … oh better not *remembers Au Revoir Winnie-Pawty*)
