Painting almost done...

Well, it's been a busy week. It always is busy - but this time we managed to squeeze in the new shop removations as well! On Saturday we had a lot of fun when our friends and their children came to help. I love these photos of the 3-year old and 5-year twins helping us out...

Here's mum giving the girls a lesson in painting

Lauren tries her hand with the paintbrush - while Hannah practices with the roller!

Well aint that cute!! These kids were amazing at painting.

Nathan climbs the ladder and checks out what Graham and Dad are doing. He was happy to let the girls do the painting while he did the jigsaw!

Here's the big room that we will use a classroom - in it's original state. It got a lick of paint in the weekend and now we are organising the carpet. It will hold around 30 people and so we are pretty excited about the events we will be able to host here. I'll pop some more photos up later when it's finished.

The shop part is pretty much ready to go. Just another coat of paint, install lights and heating, front door handle, carpet, decorations, shop fittings to make, stock to move and organise...

... All in one week. I'd better go and help Graham make me a flower trolley!
