As long a we can keep having little victories, we are reminded that we are making progress.
Yesterday's gain was all about lighting. We now have outside light above the back door. It's just a little brushed stainless steel downlight with a halogen spot in it, but it lights up enough so we can sort out our keys, and we think its quite subtle and tasteful.
We also have lights in the ceiling of what will one day be our kitchen. At the moment we have daylight bulbs in there, which may feel a little odd at first, but I think they will be a real blessing in the dark days of winter.
