Small beginnings

Hi! I'm Daisy, Minnie's sister. Minnie still hasn't arrived, she's had some sort of hold-up and we're all waiting here impatiently for her arrival.

We had hoped to be further along with the renovations by this time but Flossie couldn't take any more time off from the Crab Shack so I've stepped in to oversee things for now. Minnie is on the phone constantly with suggestions for things we can be getting on with while we wait for her but we're all a bit nervous of making any big decisions and would rather wait until she gets here. I'm still finding my feet as a 'Project Manager' but it's fun.

The new kitchen wall has been put up to divide it from the lounge area and the wallpapering is done in here so we've made some progress! I think she'll like it, it's neutral enough that she can personalise it with her own style. I got here earlier and gave everything a good wipe down and sweep up and I think it'll look great when it's all done. We've managed to find a sink unit and a cooker at the salvage yard (although the cooker has seen better days and will need a bit of TLC) but we're still on the look out for more kitchen units. It's quite a small space and once the stairs are put in it's going to get even smaller so Minnie will have to be creative to get everything in.

If I know Minnie she'll make a fab job of it though. She loves finding old furniture and giving it a new lease of life so I'm excited to see how she puts her stamp on Fox Hollow. I'm looking forward to seeing her again, it's been a while since we got together and it'll be fun having her living just along the path.

Anyway, I'll get back to work in a second. Hives just dropped off a cheeseburger and some cola for me so first I'm going to have a seat and tuck in. It's hungry work being a project manager!


  1. Good luck! ;D
