Welcome to Appletree Cottage

So here she is - and I am really dancing with Lady Luck and jumping the gun rather because we haven't completed yet - but the contracts all seem to be going through, so being ever the optimist I'm already starting the Blog!!! Although, I have to say this is all rather terrifying, the whole house is, well for want of a better word, a pit. Robbed of all its former glory (perhaps) the cottage has been left to rack and ruin and having completely maxed out on our mortgage, we are going to be trying to do a great deal of work on a shoe string........nay a little bit of thread.

But life's an adventure isn't it? And if I fall flat on my face, you'll hopefully be here to pick me up?

Always hopeful



  1. Good luck, can't wait to see more
