Salino and nut, thank you; it would not have been possible without a really wonderful builder, who allowed me to help where I could. The inside of the house was just as bad, but I love this place now - it fits me like a glove and I'm also very lucky to have the nicest neighbours you could imagine.

Today I feel so happy....
