Time to fluff the tail feathers

Day Fifteen

It's Mad Friday (one of them anyway) which feels like the perfect day to mount a blush velvet swan head wearing a pink glitter crown on the living room wall. Natch.

Swans are my Christmas theme this year, I like a theme, do you? All that looking graceful on top and paddling like a mad thing below surface - we've covered that already haven't we? But also there's the ugly duckling emerging into the beautiful swan message that they represent. And with all the progress that's happened this week in the kitchen extension that's exactly how it feels.

There's actually a bit of a party atmosphere on site at the moment. Christmas FM is on constant. The tin of Quality Street has been cracked open and Des the Decorator is pelting out Fairytale of New York from up on his painting platform.

Once everybody clocked off tonight I even cracked open the Prosecco and assumed the position of leaning on the island unit, glass in hand. It feels like a party kitchen already and I feel sure it's going to see some happy family memories being made over the coming years. Plenty of feathers fluffed and no doubt a good few spat as well.

Enjoy your parties, people.
