Since these latest photos I have spent another 3 hours achieving. I reckon there's about 6 hours' painting left to do to the walls and ceiling, to be followed by painting the beams and the windows. Then it's a case of clear the room, scrub the floor and off we go ...

Moira (our book dealer) and I spent an hilarious few hours with me on the scaffold and she on the stepladder chatting and working. You achieve so much more if there's someone to chat to. We were pleased with our afternoon's work and we're delighted with the progress. Won't be long now ...
Update: Now that she has posted some pics etc on her blog, I am at liberty to say that one of the new dealers joining us at Dairy House is Busy Lizzie, aka The Washerwoman. So exciting ...


  1. Its looking great Sue, you've done so much hard work and I'm sure it'll be worth it.

  2. It's great to have this link and see the progress. I almost feel I should be there helping, it sounds like fun.

  3. I look forward to visiting you. I have made 3 attempts so far and something cropped up on each occasion! I look forward to being to make it to Shaftesbury. I wish you well with the work!
    Take care
